At The Saint, you can enjoy the best of Scottish fare from sun up ‘til sun down from an extensive menu selection with locality, provenance and quality at its heart. From fresh eggs provided onsite by Maisie and her gang of chooks to a juicy steak from local butcher’s Stuart Minicks, hearty, wholesome and nutritious pub grub doesn’t get fresher than this!

We booked the Saint sometime ago as we have eaten there before and loved it and because this was a special occasion to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday, we could not think of a more perfect place. From the moment we walked in the door the staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help us.
The meal was excellent and served again by friendly members of staff.
If you have not been her to eat before, then please take my advice and book and sure you will love it.
Well done the Saint for making our evening even more enjoyable with a fine meal and friendly staff.

Booked table for 4 people on a Friday night , bar was quite busy we were shown to our table straight away . Had been recommended the steak pie on the menu and wasn’t disappointed . Not a huge choice on the menu but what was on it was varied and definitely something for everyone . Service was first class although restaurant was quiet . Food first class and value for money. Lovely decor . Would recommend The Saint and will be back.

Nicely refurbished, friendly and helpful staff. Food was great value and delicious. The ace is that it’s doggie friendly. Can’t believe how long it’s taking St Andrews to catch up and allow pooches under the table. They even have doggie biscuits. Manager could not have been more accommodating. We’ll be back.

Excellent food and service. Only detracting factor was location of table which was in a walk through corridor in the middle of the dining area and it felt a little detached but overall excellent!!! Will definitely be back!

The revamped and rebranded bar and restaurant is great. The food was lovely and our waitress was friendly and helpful. We were there mid week and out of season so it was very quiet but there was still a nice ambience. We will be back.

The food was nice not outstanding, didn’t like the seating we wanted a table for two in a nice quiet area instead were in a big row like school dinners. Too close to another couple. No privacy.

I ordered the club ham and cheese sandwich/ croque monsieur which looked most unappetising when it arrived - only garnish was a pile of very salty veg crisps. Sandwich reminded me of a sandwich you would normally buy on an aircraft. Ham was dry. Whole thing tasteless. My friends duck Caesar also looked thrown together and was mainly lettuce with some dry bits of duck. Coffee was good and nice piece of tablet. The old West Port had a great lunch selection and was always good. A real shame that the Saint isn’t up to the West Port Standard. Won’t be back unless I hear of a drastic improvement.

The table service was pretty good however from placing our starter till delivery was 40mins. While the restaurant was busy it didn't help that the waitress explained that another table had inadvertently been served before us. Out of her control but a complimentary drink could have been offered for customer relations.
