About
The idea for our restaurant has been a wee while in the making but when it comes to age it's got nothing on the building we will soon be calling home.After conducting a little research turns out our building once housed a 'Cleek Factory' owned by Robert Forgan, a name known to many for making the best golf clubs money can buy/We are proud of our building's history and here's hoping a little bit of their success rubs off on us.So with Mitchell's deli next door, in homage to local butcher and proprietor Murray Mitchell we thought it only right...Forgan's opening spring 2013Opening Spring 2013Craft Beers & Ales, Restaurant, Public Bar, Private Bothy's, Ceilidh Club, Cookery classes, Wine Club,

Visiting St Andrews for a night and found this place on line.. very good and informal ceilidh with a live 3 piece band. We thought it was great and they help you with the steps as well.. Drinks a bit pricey but not too bad.

You should at least buy some drinks or a small starter. As the dancing is part of the service.
