Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in for a drink on a wet afternoon and liked the vibe of the place so booked for dinner the following evening. Honest pub food, good selection of drinks and quite reasonably priced. Would recommend but suggest booking as it isn't the biggest place.

My friend came to Scotland to visit me for a week. I live in Leuchars and was looking for a pub quiz for us to do during the time she was here and happened to come across the pub quiz for this place advertised on...Facebook. Initially we didn’t plan to eat here, but after being welcomed so warmly we ate mains and desserts, we were so glad we did! The food was brilliant, most definitely homemade and not just microwaved stuff that is so common at other pubs. The quiz itself was fun and efficient with free nachos being served during the quiz break. Toilets here are immaculate and the overall feeling in the bar is warm and homely. Will definitely be returning here in the near futureMore

The food was delicious and fresh. Home cooked so worth the wait. The chips are the best homemade I've had and the fish was cooked to perfection. The staff are very friendly and there is a great atmosphere 👌

What a delightful, quirky, cosy bar & restaurant. It was a pleasure to visit. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful. We had the pate for a snack, accompanied by a glass of Jam She’d Malbec- delicious! Definitely worth a visit,

We arrived for a casual drink. We were met by a convivial host and attentive staff that were able to advise on recommendations for our choices. We ended up staying for a meal (booking recommended as we were very lucky) as the menu looked good...and the dishes coming from the kitchen looked even better! We then read in the Courier we were in venue that was actually in the weekend supplement we were reading. A fantastic ‘real pub’ in the heart of the Kingdom that didn’t disappoint.More

I first graced the steps of this place in 2019. Wowsers to the changes. To call it a ‘gastro-pub’ is detrimental. It appears that three fabulous ladies run it now. Correct me if I’m wrong. I popped in for some beverages but ended up staying...until supper. Extremely surprised that they have a 100% vegan option. Spicy, zingy and mouthwatering green lentil and five bean chilli. Proper comfort food in an ample portion. Like me, they don’t like food waste. So I have a carton of leftovers. Non alcoholic drinks by request. Fabulous non-alcoholic gin with elderflower cordial, dash of sugar syrup, lime and mmmmmm lemon too 🍹💖 I love fine dining but this fabulously run place is homely, comfy and fun! Plus your well behaved dog is kept amused and made to feel like gold. Such a cordial welcome. No airs or graces. Dress up or just be casual. Just come as you are. The only place where well behaved dogs are allowed in Cupar. Cozy and lighthearted atmosphere where the only requirement for entrance is “wearing clothes.” Offering water in a dog bowl for your pup. I could go on but with so many small places having to close for good, this wee establishment has lasted. Could have stayed until closing but we were totally shattered and Biggles is snoozing away. If you’re near or far, come check it out 🏆💖More

We booked a lunchtime slot following a dog walk. The atmosphere is pleasant and friendly, the staff are attentive. The Steak Pie was excellent as were the Fish and Chips. The Macgregor Red Ale was so good that I just had to have a second...one, just to confirm my first impression. We will be returning.More

Great tasty food with helpful and quick service. On our visits we have had the fish and chips, steak pie, scampi and bacon and cheese burger all absolutely excellent and served with well cooked thick cut chips. Perfect for a pub lunch and drink.
