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!

I love the new look of the place. Really lovely. My main problem was the length of time the food took to arrive. It was very quiet and an hour after arriving we were still waiting for our main course. Both courses were also a bit too salty (and I like salt). Having said that, I would go back and try it again.

Nice meal in the Saint however instead of being remembered for the food, it was the confused waitress and service. Didn't 'spoil' our visit, just unprofessional

Great food and service. The duck entree was exceptional. Sticky toffee pudding and White chocolate bread and butter pudding were very good. Nicely decorated and nice atmosphere.

Have been here a few times, when it was the West Port

Disappointing tonight, service wasn't great, waited on drinks & food, had to return a starter

Not sure I'd hurry back again, pity

A very welcoming establishment , customer focussed and genuinely child friendly . We enjoyed the food , service and overall ambiance of the restaurant . So much so we returned the following day for a drink and loved the variety of seating locations as well as the choices from the well stocked bar . Will definitely return

Table for 4, early evening, not too busy. Service was good, and the food was enjoyable.
Only downside was the side salad, which was very oily.

Once ordered the food took an hour to arrive .
Overall some of the cooked good was very nice while some of it was just plain awful. The seating was very uncomfortable and restrictive.

Overall things were find. Staff very pleasant. There are better restaurants in St. Andrews for the same price range. I was looking forward to my sole sandwich. Figuring a nice piece of fish and I received over fried tidbits of sole. We were all seated among a late party that occupied the rest of the room. They were very pleasant I just thin we shouldn’t have been seated with a party of approximately 25.

Not great variety on menu and disappointing when food did come. Had club sandwich which was nothing to it and not worth the money. Grilled chicken in it was cold. Chips were amazing. Overall experience just average and would not rush back.

Lovely meal here again. Nice that there are always some regular items on the menu and some new items. Service was brilliant and never felt rushed in any way as me and my friend were chatting away completely oblivious of time. Alissa was very helpful and even came and checked if we needed anything else before she finsished her shift. Other staff, didnt cathch her name, was also super helpful.
Looking forward to going back.

Waitress efficient and polite but food took a while to arrive. When it did, quality of one dish very poor which was subsequently deducted from bill. Disappointing considering place wasn't mobbed.

Had eggs benedict. The ham hock was mostly dry and overcooked; the muffin was tough to cut. The eggs and sauce were good, as were the fries. The tea and caramel shortbread were excellent. Recommend to have eggs on toast and ask for hollandaise sauce on the side!
