Welcome to The Saint Bar & Kitchen! Formerly St Andrews institution The West Port, the Saint has recently received an extensive renovation creating cosy, modern lounge areas and a refreshed, extensive garden area so you can enjoy whatever the Scottish weather throws your way.

When booking online, there are usually two options; standard or outdoor. Standard seating is for indoor bookings and, if time slots for bookings outdoors are not showing, it means that the area is fully booked.

Please note that our kitchen closes at 9pm so we cannot offer food after this time.

All of our staff will be wearing PPE. We ask that you wear a mask on arrival and while moving around the restaurant. Please arrive promptly for your booking so that we can stagger bookings and that you can enjoy your table for the maximum time.

    Beautiful restaurant, lovely decor and service was good. However we were so disappointed in the food. The tempura cauliflower sounded lovely, we expected florets in light crispy batter instead we got heavy thick batter that would be served in a poor chippy, soaked in fat! Garlic bread was rock solid. Same thick greasy batter on the fish. This has the makings of a super restaurant and maybe we were in on the regular chef’s day off but we were sadly left feeling really disappointed.

    The service was very good even though the restaurant was clearly very busy. Good food…. the dessert was particularly delicious! Lovely wine & it was nice to be offered a taster when I was unsure about a wine. The only down side was one group of diners were rather loud. A very good evening.

    It's a lovely looking restaurant, nice beer garden. I would say it's more expensive than it warrants. The food is nice, better than pub grub, but not somewhere to go for a really nice meal. Just our opinion.

    We booked The Saint as a surprise for my partners 40th having been a few times before. Once again we left smiling and I honestly can’t thank the staff enough for their service and attentiveness on Saturday. We were able to deliver a cake prior to our booking and Ricardo ensured the night ran smoothly! Excellent team, setting is lush and a very reasonable bill at the end of the night. Thank you

    Having eaten at the Saint on several occasions I have to say I was disappointed this time in the menu selection and the quality of my food . My friend and I had the crispy chicken with lemon and thyme risotto and found the chicken to be over cooked and the thyme in the risotto to be overwhelming. The remainder of the group however enjoyed their food though they too felt the choices were limited. I do appreciate that the present climate may have contributed to the limitations in what is available. Staff were polite, helpful and friendly.

    Nice venue, been in a few times but the table service is very slow, even for a lunch serving. From arriving to actually having a drink brought to the table was 35 minutes. The food was lovely and the staff were polite. There is an automatic 10 percent service charge included on the bill which I wasn't sure was merited given the lengthy wait for drinks, but was paid in case there was some other justification for the wait.
