    Service was very slow , took 20minutes for a member of staff to take a drinks order and another 25minutes to receive our drinks order apart from that the food was lovely and I would use the restaurant again

    After finishing our meal we waited 30/40 mins for someone to appear to clear away our plates. During this time we also did not have any other staff members near us to ask them to clear the table or bring more drinks. Music while it was good was deafening, so loud we couldn’t talk properly! Asked numerous times to have it turned down.

    Dear Audrey, I am sorry to hear about your disappointing visit on Friday. We will be reviewing your comments about the service with the whole team to ensure this doesn't happen again. We would love to invite you back for a complimentary meal to illustrate to you our proper standards of service. If this is something you would be interested in, please email us on sinners@the-saint-bar.co.uk. Many thanks Beth

    We come every Sunday we are in St Andrews to take part in the quiz, which is fantastic fun! Service is friendly and the food is good quality. We hear that the quiz may be stopping - please keep it going or we will have to find somewhere else to get our fix of quizzing.

    A little disappointed with the Sunday roast lunch, granted it’s reasonably priced for 3 courses but no proper roast potatoes instead small new potatoes? Friendly staff and nice restaurant but the food a little underwhelming.

    We prebooked a roast dinner 2 weeks ago as we were coming specifically for this but when we got there , waitress said it was sold out of roast beef and chicken . When we said we had pre booked roast dinner they then offered a roast chicken with but no Yorkshire pudding left , I didn’t want that but my daughter had. Saint should not give pre book option if they not honoring it. Was supposed to be a special Easter dinner and disappointing

    The SaintResponded on 21 April 2022

    Thanks for the comments Jane. I am really sorry that we had run out of the roast dinner by 6.30pm. It was a very busy Easter Sunday for us we start our roast from 12pm, you really have to be in early to guarentee the roast. Thanks Laura

    Sunday lunch. It was fine, nothing was actually bad about it but it just felt lacking. Plenty of meat but the yorkshire was limp, the spuds were soggy and the veg was drowned in the gravy. Good sticky toffee pudding. Overpriced, but probably par for St Andrews. Felt like it could be much better with just a bit more attention to detail.

    We ordered two dishes: scampi and fish and chips. My friend liked the scampi. The fish and chips I ordered was among the worst I’ve ever experienced. The batter was messy , well overdone and the fish well hidden. We weren’t quite sure what ‘reduced menu’ meant as obviously the original wasn’t there to compare!

    The SaintResponded on 14 April 2022

    Thanks Dunkelder for the review and feedback. I am very sorry to hear that you didnt enjoy the fish and chips. I would really like to show you that this isnt our usual standard, and the fish and chips is such a popular dish. My email address is laura.smith@signaturepubs.co.uk Thanks Laura

    This wasn't the best we've had from the Saint. Usually loved our meals here but last night's was average. We had to return a child's and adults burger as both were cold. My scampi was good but the fish cake to start wasnt tasty. Service as always was excellent.

    Good quality food, served with a cheery smile but a very limited menu. Nice place to eat and will go again but wish they'd be a bit more adventurous and supplement the ubiquitous fish&chips, mac 'n cheese etc. Too many pubs have gone down this route, the Saint deserves better.

    The menu felt a bit limited. One of our party ordered the vegetarian curry. When it arrived the rice was not properly cooked. We told our server who replied that the chef was new and she’d let them know so it didn’t happen again. The lady concerned left most of the rice and was only able to eat the curry. No offer of compensation was offered. Extremely disappointing.

    Very disappointing. We were staying at the Old Course Hotel, however decided to venture out into St Andrews for a meal on Saturday night. We booked The Saint. Starters were okay, however my main dish of a medium to well done steak was very poor. My steak arrived still mooing. It was returned to the kitchen and some 10 minutes later arrived back at my table. Whilst it looked cooked on the outside, the inside was at best medium rare. It was also very fatty. I complained and my complaint was accepted as valid. Apparently the chef was new! To be fair, the cost of the steak was removed from the bill. I would however rather have had a decent meal and paid for the full bill, as opposed to what we ended up with. There will be no return to The Saint.

    The SaintResponded on 6 April 2022

    So sorry to read your experience at The Saint. I can assure you that all your points raised on that evening have been dealt with and we are back on track. Would love to invite you back when your next in the area to show you this wasn't our normal service. Thanks Laura

    Rice was a solid block and hard to cut even with a knife. Dry, stale loaf instead of naan bread. Crispy potatoes were missing and Veggie burger was tiny and oily. Asked for salad instead of chips and got chips and no salad. Overpriced for bad food.

    Enjoyed our first meal with friends since before lockdown. Noticed big rise in prices. Was a Tuesday afternoon and there was no rush to get us out which was perfect. They add 10% service charge which was pointed out to us by the server.
