Was staying at Rufflets hotel and found this tavern nearby and ate one meal here. The Quality of food and service were excellent with a small welcoming bar for an aperitif before dining

Our large party of 6 adults and 5 children ( 5 - 10 years old ) was well catered for on the nicely balanced menu. Portions were substantial, the food was delicious and the service was first class. It was well worth the short journey out from St Andrews and we were lucky to have 2 volunteer drivers who said... More

I started with the mushroom and haggis which was really delicious. I have never tasted haggis as nice as this. I then had fish pie, mash and vegetables. Essentially carrots and a... More

The bar has an interesting range of beers including guest beers which change regularly. In the summer you can sit outdoors and on a nice evening get... More

i visit whenever I'm in the St Andrews area (usually at local camp site). The food is freshly prepared, always tasty and not overpriced. The bar has a good selection of house wine and the staff are friendly. There's limited car parking outside the Tavern but there's always the main road and a local authority free car park a short...

This is a very nice restaurant. It is a great location, comfortable and the staff are polite. The food was good but not to the standard of the price.

8 of us went on a Saturday evening for a meal, the food and service was exemplary. All of us without exception enjoyed our food and I would say I had the best chips ever. All of our meals were hot and good sized portions. I had a starter and a main course but couldn't manage a dessert but the... More

My wife and I had our evening meal here during a visit in October this year. The staff were friendly and efficient also advising on local craft beers. We received complimentary warm savoury scones whilst waiting for our food which was most welcome. The food was excellent and cooked perfectly ( fantastic fish pie). Nice selection of desserts which we... More
