THE VINE LEAF

Husband and wife team Morag and Ian Hamilton have run the informal, respected Vine Leaf for 25 years. At the end of a close, just off the spine of St Andrews, Morag’s menu makes the most of the great local seafood and game. She also gives vegetarians more than customary choice, and more than usual imagination. Ian pays equal attention to the wine list: extensive research has resulted in six house wines and over 60 more bottles.

DROUTHY NEEBORS

This ‘hidden gem’ is a cafe & bar situated on South Street. Food is served daily 12.00pm – 8.00pm and caters for every budget.  We love to have an emphasis on home cooked food with quality drinks to match and we also like to think we are big enough to cope yet small enough to care.

WHEY PAT

It’s the bar with the longest history in St Andrews which, according to the staff, makes it the most experienced and thus the greatest. Somewhere near this site from as early as the 12th century, enterprising locals were serving up gruel to pilgrims as they entered the West Port. The ‘pat’ from which the pub takes its name was the pot they served it from. The current building dates from 1902, but there’s been a hostelry here since 1580. All of this has led to the most traditional and homely of bars, the kind of place you can set your clock by the regulars. Popular also with postgraduate students, real ale drinkers and tourists, The Whey Pat guarantees the friendliest of visits.
