We just went for drinks hence 3 stars for food. Cocktails lovely. Staff friendly and attentive, ambience in garden great. Always worth going back. We live in St Andrews - how lucky are we !
Thank you for leaving us a lovely review. We can't wait to have you back hopefully to try some food this time! Thanks, Nicole.
Went for lunch with a friend and the food was delicious as usual. Service was friendly and prompt. I would definitely recommend the Saint to anyone visiting St Andrews. We sat inside this time but the outside area is great and has buzz to it.

The team at The Saint are pleased you enjoy your time with us and we can't wait to see you again. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Thanks Nicole.
There was a really long wait to order drinks and although being told they'd come back in a few mins, it was over half an hour before anyone did so. This was the same btwn ordering first round and our meal. It just meant we didn't spend as much and felt rushed given the turn around time and length it took to even have food and drink
Thank you for raising the issue to our attention Veech. I am terribly sorry this is the service you received as this is far from the service we aim to deliver. We hope you give us another chance to prove this is not our standard of service. Thanks Nicole.
Food was very good .All freshly made . Very good value for money.
Would recommend the apple and berry crumble it was delicious.
The team are happy to hear you enjoyed the food on your visit. The crumble is one of our most popular deserts i am glad you loved it as much as we do. Thanks Nicole.
Terrific ,simple food cooked well and presented with flair.
I'm glad you enjoyed the food Alison we hope to see you again soon. Thanks Nicole.

Thank you for your review John we are so happy to hear you enjoy your visits, we are glad you keep coming back! Hopefully see you again soon while the great weathers here. Thanks Nicole.
Nice place to have a drink. Staff all very attentive and service good.
Thank you for your review David. Thanks Nicole.
Service was absolutely terrible. We had a two hour booking and only managed to order drinks twice as the service was nonexistent. We were sat in the outdoor area with around 6/7 other tables, the majority of which were sitting with empty glasses and plates trying to get served. We also heard two other tables complaining about the service to staff. When we did place an order (for two drinks) it took 45 minutes for the order to appear. Also had to ask for the bill three times when we were leaving. When we told the server we had been waiting 30 minutes on our second drinks, he advised that there was a birthday party in and the smaller tables get forgotten about. This is a terrible comment to make to customers with no apology, and a terrible attitude for staff to have. Not once did any server say apologise for the delay. Also, one of the members of our party was asked not to vape in the outdoor area (fair enough) but the table of 6 female students were allowed to smoke cigarettes in the same area? Seems like the rules aren't enforced with all customers.
Thank you for raising the issue to our attention DL46. I am terribly sorry this is the experience you received as this is far from the service we aim to deliver. We do not prioritise bigger tables over small tables. We value all of our customers greatly. We hope you give us another chance to prove this is not our standard of service. Thanks, Nicole.
Table not clean and slow service. But staff were friendly.
Top location, great and happy service, great food, great ambience and well priced. Don’t walk past it
A fabulous beer garden with great food. Service was very good. Vegan choices were great.?
Glad you enjoyed the beer garden and Vegan choices. See you soon, Laura

Glad you loved the beer garden, staff and cocktails. See you soon. Laura
Friendly. polite and helpful staff.
Good value for money, nice atmosphere, perhaps background music would be an asset. We will be back!
Hi Valerie, Thanks for the review. We do have music on in the venue, just not allowed to have it really loud. See you soon. Thanks Laura
Busy and covid times, slow service and food was pretty good. Nice staff, we'll be back.
Thanks for the review. We will see you soon. Thanks Laura
Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice outdoor space. Good COVID safeguards in place.
Lovely Alfresco dining area at the back of the Hotel, never been here before but will be back, lovely meal and very pleasant service.
Thanks Norma, Glad you found us, and would visit again. Thanks Laura
Staff very polite and friendly, bar/restaurant/beer garden all really nice, however waited just over 1 hour for 2 wraps with a side of chips each Which to be brutality honest were definitely not worth £8.50 each. Would not recommend friend to eat here, gill
Hi Gillian, I have passed your comments onto the kitchen team. So sorry you had a bad experience with us. Thanks Laura
The food was tasty and they cocktail offering was great. However service was a little bit slow.
Hi Ewan, So sorry that the service was slow. Hopefully you give us another chance and we can show you that that is not our normal service. Thanks Laura
Friendly staff, great care for seating and safety, super food, will definitely return.
Thanks for the great review! See you soon. Thanks Laura
We didn’t have food only drinks but what I did see going out looked fab!
I wish we had ordered food but already had a prior booking elsewhere so will defo return!
Hi Caroline, Thanks for the lovely review. Hopefully see you next time for food. Thanks Laura
Fast and professional service, all COVID regulations observed. Toilets were very busy.
Glad you loved the service and our covid guidelines. See you soon. Thanks Laura
Service poor. 30 minutes wait for drinks when not that busy. Drink did not arrive with order. Server dismissive and rude. Issue with card machine. Would not return and suspect others wouldn't either given their similar experiences.
Thanks for the review, so sorry about the card machines and the missing drink. Thanks for raising these issues. Laura
Disappointing would sum up our visit. Quite a long wait for food and when the food arrived the portions were small. Two of us had the burger which seemed to be bought in and quite processed and the bacon was very salty. Such a shame, food on a previous visit was lovely.
Hi Vkinski, So sorry you had a bad experience, however all our food is homemade. Sorry for the long wait for food. I have raised your issues with the kitchen team. Hope to see you soon. Laura
Nice place to have a drink and food. Staff all very attentive and welcoming at all times. Would recommend to anyone wanting a drink or to have some food.
Hi David, Thanks for the lovely review. Hope to see you soon. Thanks Laura
Service was a bit slow, would have benefited from being more attentive. Burgers were reasonably tasty but could have been hotter.
Hi Graeme, Thanks for the review and raising these issues. Will pass these comments onto the management team and kitchen. Thanks Laura
Great food and nice place
Will be back
Well priced food which was very tasty
Great review! See you soon. Thanks Laura
Simple food and good value. Was busy so service was slow but we weren’t in a rush
Hi Diane, Thanks for the review, sorry that the service was slow! Hope to see you soon. Thanks Laura
We sat out in the tent. It was comfortable and felt safe. Cocktails and drinks we ordered were lovely as were the snack food. However the thing that let it down was slow service. We waited on average 15-20 mins for a drink. We weren't the only ones. All the other tables were waiting same length. It wasn't the waiting staffs fault, surely management should have been checking efficiency. Obviously it was because everybody was ordering cocktails but the venue was less than half empty so I'd hate to see what it was like of actually busy! We will return but hope that these teething problems are fixed next time. You're given a 2 hour slot so waiting so long, wastes valuable time.
Hi Kate, Thanks for raising these issues. Sorry that you had a wait for drinks, I have raised these issues with our management team to ensure a faster service time. Thanks Laura
Was good meal, not the largest portions but tasted good, had the steak sandwich which I have had with toasted bread wch I think this dish would benefit from
Hi Duncan, Thanks for your review. Its no problem to toast the bread if that's your preference. See you soon. Laura
Food was delicious and staff were very welcoming.
Thanks for the review! Glad you found the staff welcoming, and the food delicious. Thanks Laura
Fab food, great menu selection. Staff really friendly and helpful
Lovely review! See you soon. Laura
