Had lunch here after touring St Andrews. Had the best look from the outside of the places we had passed by. Lunch was typical bar food and the usual order at the bar, pay in advance and wait to be served. Service was OK, meals arrived hot and in good time. Just a regular bar with food service.

Good friendly service. It's a place we have visited before and will do so when we visit St Andrews again.

We had a great lunch here while we were on a tour. The food was great and very reasonably priced. Later in the week, when we were back in St. Andrews for a little golf, we decided to go to The "CRI for a pie" as suggested by a shop owner. We had delicious beef and Ale pie served outside on the patio. We met some friendly locals and had a wonderful evening. Casual and super friendly, with scrumptious pies.
