If you are in St Andrews, even if you’re not staying at the Old Course Hotel, you have to go up to the bar for a few drinks. Fantastic views during the day and a lovely place to lose a few hours in the evening

Went for a cup of tea. Beautiful surroundings and lovely view. Complimentary snacks were given when we were seated. We were going to go to the restaurant to eat but I could only see one vegetarian option. Delightful experience.

This is a nice relaxing bar on the 4th floor of the Old Course Hotel and as you could imagine the view is quite stunning. It has a lovely atmosphere and generous whisky menu for you to peruse, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
