    Booked online after reading positive reviews during research for our weekend break to St Andrews, The staff were welcoming and attentive and the decor is lovely, however we were disappointed in our Cocktails (too sweet/couldn't taste any alcohol) and our food was average at best. Starter portions were small and a bit bland ..certainly didn't live up to the menu description. Main courses were not entirely as described on the menu and also very skimpy with ingredients - I ordered the hake mornay and it was a very small fillet with barely any cheese sauce and tiny portion of potatoes and veg underneath, hidden underneath a huge pile of peashoots to make the serving look generous on arrival..definitely not value for money at £15.00. My husband ordered the bacon cheeseburger which says is served on a toasted foccacia, however arrived on a regular bread roll - without explanation and the burger itself was a little tough. In summary, overpriced and a bit style over substance...wouldn't rush back

    Hi Liz, Thank you for your comments regarding the food, I have passed these onto the Head Chef and kitchen team. Hope to see you soon. Thanks Laura
