Not a massive place to sit for drinks but the menu is good and drinks are reasonably priced. The atmosphere could definitely be better. Good variety and not too expensive. A bit more of a classy place but there's definitely better places to go for drinks in St. Andrews.

Warm friendly staff with relaxed atmosphere. I could have eaten everything on the menu it all sounded so delicious. Unfortunately I had to keep it light as we were going out that evening but so impressed with the selection and quality of food. Had my favourite LP which is not often on menu's so A+ from me!

My family and I enjoyed a pleasant meal at The Adamson recently. Good service, polite staff and excellent food. We were in a party of 5 and we were on a mezzanine landing that was a little tight for space. But food and service more than made up for this. I can recommend the Gnocchi, the Hake and the Steak...

Booked this restaurant after reading favourable reviews. Very nice place, attentive staff, & food was good, although our friend , who's birthday we were celebrating, had to wait for her main course, as the order had been forgotten. Not the best of service, although staff were apologetic & the birthday girl received a "glass" of wine by way of compensation.... More

excellent staff and service was superb. Kids made to feel welcome and part of the family. Menu was superb and we could not fault the choices . Presentation was great and food tasted superb. a bit on the pricey side but if you know this at the outset then not a problem.
