Vegetables were undercooked. Chips were straight out of a packet. It felt like a microwave meal! Burger not home made Long delays waiting.
Perhaps an off day but not impressed.

I have to say did complain about our starter being over cooked. And they apologised and only charge for one starter. Though they never came to say , only noticed when looking at bill.
I was a little disappointed this time. Can be slow service too.

The service here was very slow we waited such along time for our food to arrive. When it did eventually arrive it was overcooked. Prawn Scampi was practically burnt and so was the fish. Again we waited such a long time for our Coffee and eventually we had to go looking for a waitress to ask for our bill. Won't be in a rush to go back if at all

Only popped in for a latte to recover from shopping fatigue, but it was a great experience. Looking forward to coming back soon for a bite to eat + to appreciate the space properly.

I go to the saint for coffee meetings, lunches and drinks and food in the garden. I always enjoy my visits. The staffs know me and they are always attentive and friendly. I love the atmosphere and the decor.
The food is good too but my favourite is the cocktails!!

Very pleasant ambience. Service unhurried which suited us well. Light bites were tasty and good value. Main menu prices seemed more in keeping with a special occasion.

We were celebrating my birthday - it was lovely to be out. We had my 4 year old grandson with us who was delighted with his chicken gougons , chips and beans I had Steak Pie and I can assure you it is the best Steak Pie I have ever had when I have been out anywhere. The others in out party thoroughly enjoyed their food too. The service was a bit slow but due to the circumstances of us moving to tier 3 the next day it was very busy.
A very enjoyable experience. Thank you.

I would like to say a special mention to our waiter he was very accommodating and a credit to your restaurant and bar unfortunately I didn’t catch his name but he had a beard and showed us to our outdoor seating area which has a lovely ambiance about it .
It was my daughters birthday and it was a lovely start to our day ! Thanks again !

Served straight away. Sat at a nice table in the corner but never forgotten about. The meal was excellent. Cooked to perfection and nice and hot. Unfortunately we were both too full from our starter and main to have desert, but the menu looked good so we will be back to try them another time. Lovely place and lovely staff.

The Club sandwich was very disappointing as the bread had not been toasted, as is normal. We had to wait nearly 20 minutes for our coffees, which were not too good at all. Very disappointing visit for lunch.

It was extremely loud in there, I had to basically shout at my friend. I could also barely hear what they’re ere saying. The service at the start was terrible as we sat there waiting for like 20-25mins so we thought we needed to use the QR code to order but once we stopped a server going by we managed to give an order. Also a small bottle of Budweiser was like 5pound a which is expensive even for St. Andrews, the brownie my friend ah seas also five pounds again being expensive.
The heaters were nice and the tent was cool but we also had to wait 5 mins before we got our temperatures taken and allowed to go sit down.

Fine. All COVID protocols in place. Excellent service.
(Usual loud American students broadcasting their life story across the restaurant, but this is nothing new in St Andrews).

Food and drinks excellence. Service was ok, had to call on the waiter a couple of times as he kept passing us without taking orders or clearing plates but would definitely visit again as the food was really good.

We had an excellent meal - the only reason for marking it down was because of the Covid restrictions we had to sit outside and it was rather chilly! More outside heaters needed methinks! Meal beautiful.

Very nice atmosphere, however it was a bit stressful getting last orders at 8 pm and the waiters rushing around and giving us the bill without us asking
