Been wanting to visit this place for a long time. Certainly worth the wait . Great menu great food great staff. Dining alone for lunch so didn't want to go overboard and have a steak ! Thought I would down size and have a burger . Honestly the biggest and best burger I have ever had. Awesome lunch can't wait... More

Queued to get in, but the Smoked Haddock Chowder was worth it! Lot of tasty ideas throughout the shop too.

We had burgers from the bbq restaurant outside this time and it was great, good burgers and everyone enjoyed their meal, there were 11 of us and there was no issue, all the food came out together and it was excellent. Only issue we had was the smoke inside the restaurant area, a bit too smoky. I didn't find it... More

Had lunch in the steak barn in October 2016. The barn was super cool with an interesting fire in the centre and blankets to keep customers warm. However, despite this, the place seemed to lack atmosphere. I had a burger with a side of onion rings and a coke. The service was a bit rushed which made the place seem... More

Went here for lunch having past lots of times and seen it was busy. Having ordered our food and drinks by a very dry waitress, our sirloin steaks arrived before our drinks or cutlery to eat it with. By the time we then got our drinks, then finally our cutlery our food had got cold. Two out of four of... More

4 of us had a Sunday morning breakfast here on the last day of the Alfred Dunhill golf tournament. It's close to the St. Andrews scene and it's a nice setting in a converted barn. Staff were friendly and provided good service and the menu choice was good, ranging from a full breakfast through to the healthy options. No porridge... More

This is a busy and very popular place in which to eat and the owners deserve full credit for the friendly, relaxing atmosphere and for providing a wide choice of good food at reasonable prices. Service is brisk, friendly, and efficient. The food ranges from soup and sandwiches through to hearty stews and is served exactly as described on their... More

Stopped here for lunch as we were just arriving in St. Andrews after a friend recommended the place. It certainly did not disappoint! The place was really busy so we waited to be seated, we didn't mind at all as it was worth the wait! I had the cup of soup and half roast Beef sandwich. It was delicious. There... More

Stopped here for a "cake and coffee" break. The place looked very inviting and had lots to offer. The coffee was lovely, as was the orange and poppyseed cake. Sadly, the same could not be said for the blueberry cake. And the soda was flat..... Replacements were given, which were ok. The 2nd coffee ordered never appeared.
