A genuine free house with a bistro on the ground floor and a pub downstairs. Noisy, funny, different, and friendly. Three fast rotating cask ales on offer, all excellent beers found in very good condition. I had a few interesting ales from BrewDog, not to mention Witches Cauldron on Halloween. Good selection of Belgian, German and Polish bottled beers. Freshly made, tasty food. Polite and helpful service. Worn out, but still charming interior. Very unpretentious place that seemed to be popular with students. Visit several times during my stay in St. Andrews, late October and early November 08.

Recently vistited on a trip to St Andrews. Decent sellection on beers for scotland. Guy was playing chess while i was waiting to get served so maybe not the best service, but adds that friendly atmosphere you dont get in glasgow.

Possibly one of my favourite pubs in St Andrews. The cellar and Aikmans are both unpretentious and sometimes have a folk band or similar on. Really friendly atmosphere. The staff are always nice and will talk at length about their ales, and let you try a sample of each before you buy, so you can make your mind up. They have several rarer ales and bottled beers, great selection.

Lovely place for the rarer German and Belgian beers, quite pricey even by St Andrews standards but always a good simple atmoshpere.

The Cellar is a very bare bones pub, but they stock excellent beers from all over Europe. It is an ever rotating list so check the website.
