Food was good and freshly made. Service quick with a very friendly waitress. Music a bit loud when the restaurant empty. Would put me off coming back.

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.

Although I'd booked a table weeks previous, and confirmed it that day, we still had to wait for a table to be set for us. A small delay only, but not ideal with my elderly mother left standing on a busy thoroughfare. Once seated we were promptly approached with menus and had our drinks order taken. Good choice of drinks and cocktails and a nice wine selection. The food was freshly cooked to order, with obviously in season produce. Really delicious, and a great selection for everyone, aged from 15 - 79. The food was maybe a little slow coming out, but as it was so good, as was the company, no problem. The waiting staff were friendly and vigilant . Well worth a visit, this wasn't our first visit, and it won't be our last.

Met up with friends for a meal on Sunday evening.
I ordered fish pie, I had to look long and ard to find any fish although the sauce was very nice. The vegetables that accompanied it very virtually raw.
My friend had haggis which she said was ok but expensive for the small portion that was served.
No one came to check if our meal was ok so wasn’t able to discuss our issues.
Wouldn’t recommend coming here for food, maybe a drink as nice decor

Some menu options are better than others. From our group of 8 the duck, the scamp & the haggis were good. The gnocchi, the pork chop and the pork burger were not good.

Duck was overcooked and dry. Friends had the fish and said it was lovely.
Restaurant was very noisy.

Nice food, pleasant staff and nice surroundings, but even on a relatively quiet day,we felt abandoned by staff, although a significant number of people were eating in the same area of the beer garden as ourselves. Had to go back inside eventually...twice ...to order next course, then get the bill. Staff nice but not attentive enough/ not enough of them.

We were in St Andrew's for a family wedding on the saturday and wanted to go out for a nice meal with our parents on the sunday. I looked on trip advisor as we are originally from Fife but have lived in the Lake District for 30 years so not a clue where was good. I went on the recommendations on The Saint and also that nearly everything was locally sourced. I must say the place was lovely the eating areas were unusyal and comfy. The food was scrumptious and a good variety for all tastes. The staff were very attentive even changed our table when my dad who is not well struggled to get in. All in all i would highly recommend The Saint. Will definitely be going if we visit St Andrew's again and will be tellibg all my relatives in Fufe to give it a try.
Thanks
