This is a great bar on the 4th floor of the Old Course Hotel. Was looked after by the wonderful Rachel who should be Employee of the Month. Humidor was out of service and Rachel rang the Jigger Inn to see if they had any cigars. They did and Rachel dispatched a member of her team to collect them for... More

Coming from Australia and obviously being a golfer, this just has to be on your list. Just walking around the hotel looking at all the photos is an experience. The two staff serving were so friendly, and the coffee was the best we had on our 6 week visit to UK. Just to sit and look over "The Road Hole"... More

Great selection of whisky flights where you can inspect the label and enjoy the view. Comfortable place for a nightcap.

I really do enjoy this place. I've visited with my fiancée, my mother and visitors to the area - all find the location, venue (esp. the view) and service very good.

We stopped for a late day drink on our last night in St. Andrews and wished we had found this place on the first night. The view of the Old Course, Beach, St. Andrews and more is just fantastic. We really enjoyed watching all the golfers playing the 17th hole and remembering our own experience playing it. Wonderful piano entertainment.... More

I loved the road hole bar in the 4th floor of the Old St Andrews hotel. The staff was incredible. Very friendly and helpful and great with their understanding of whiskey. We spent some great time there talking about the different areas and trying new whiskeys. They were terrific and I highly recommend Rachel in the bar. She was just... More

My girlfriend, my friend and I visited the road hole bar late in the evening seeing as no where else was open. Upon walking into the bar, you are struck by the magnificent views out onto the old course and towards the west sands beach. We ordered our drinks which were brought out to us fairly quickly.

We visited St. Andrews for our anniversary and visited the road hole bar for drinks. The view is lovely with several tables set at the window. The bar staff were friendly and peanuts are complimentary which is a nice touch. We will be back!
