About
The VIC is a twin venue of sorts, like the Olsens, except we don't see ourselves being billionaires anytime soon. There’s the pub/kitchen, which pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin, drinks from beer to posh gin serves. Food glorious food, there may or may not be hot sausage and mustard (depending on the day and the chef's mood and whether or not we were able to catch fresh sausages that morning). The social club, although on the same floor as the pub/kitchen, is on an altogether lower level morally. The DJs are fresher than the air up on the 11th hole, totally non generic and they show up and play records really good. Then there's the one off club nights and a whole bunch of other

The Vic is our go-to venue within St Andrews. It has a simple open, inclusive layout. Even when it's busy the high ceiling gives an added sense of space. The menu changes periodically, but it remains variations of a theme, and gives a fresh modern...More

Hey Louise, those under 18 are welcome from 10am-10pm everyday. Our kitchen closes at 9pm some nights, so I suggest booking if you think it will be a late one. Hope to see you soon!
