Definitely worth a visit. Novel venue setting in a barn made out of old potato crates, long wooden tables and benches, fire pit and huge industrial barbeque. Great steak and twice fried chips, reasonable price, great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Visited after lunch in St. Andrews, so we just had a coffee. Nice shop, bought the giant sausage rolls for our tea that night and they were awesome! Very reasonably priced meals too!

Ate here with my husband & young son, on a busy Easter Sunday lunchtime. As mentioned in some of the other posts, it took us 15mins to get a table, but we took that as a good sign. Plenty of staff buzzing around, bringing out lots of tempting looking food. We both chose the roast beef special; which came with... More

This review relates to the Steak Barn. The Steak Barn is just magnificent. A kind of indoor outdoor eating experience. Burgers are tremendous and even the Vegetarian Portobello Mushroom Burger got a massive thumbs up from my wife. Drinks are great - local Eden Mill "19th Hole Lager" especially recommended. The real USP is the building though. A big Barn,... More

My local produce - country farm food shop (and great place to have a bite to eat). All local produce. If eating, pre book. A country farm food shop, with plenty parking space. But, don't wear heels !!!

Stopped past to buy from the shop and decided to have lunch. We were in a queue which is the norm there but you never have to wait too long. Food was fresh served very quickly. Staff very nice.

Popped into the Steak Barn for an evening meal with friends. The setting is lovely in an old converted barn. The steak was excellently cooked accompanied with a delicious IPA from St Andrews brewery. Will defiantly be visiting again.

We are regular visitors to the cafe and it's excellent. Good food, wonderful staff and a nice atmosphere. Nice for children. Good changing facilities though like most places they could do with emptying the nappy bin more frequently! We recently visited the newly re opened steak barn - dreadful. Not family friendly. No baby changing. Dark. Freezing despite it being... More
