Service was spot on. Very friendly & helpful staff. Acceptable waiting time for beautiful fresh food. Only negative for us was not having a separate children's menu as we had our 3 year old daughter with us. Would definitely return here next time we're in...More

The service was average, the staff seemed to distance themselves from us, the food was Hot and freshly cooked but the Chips were a lot to be desired as more than half of them were re heats.

What a find! In this pleasant little village to find a lovely tavern serving brilliant food and drinks at reasonable prices was amazing. You won't be disappointed to eat or drink or both here. Excellent.

Super place for a wonderful meal just 10 minutes from St Andrews. Not a very large place so reservations are a good idea. Very friendly staff and good service. The fish stew was wonderful!

Fabulous food, beers recommended by staff, and they were right. We almost got a challenge to manage a dessert after a huge main course served by a very nice young man. We lost! The food was excellent but we could not eat anything else. Lovely...More

We had lunch and sat outside enjoying the sunshine and view, no hurry at all from the mine host Barbara, who runs the Tav with her husband and family, certainly worth a visit. ps ( a lovely selection of gins ) 👍
