Overview
More
This historic building is steeped in history. It dates back to the 1850s, when it was the station master’s lodge and the history and heritage live on. Today, The Jigger Inn is home to golfing memorabilia, crackling open-hearth fires, home-cooked food and a superb selection of Scottish beers – this is traditional Scottish pub hospitality at its very best. Fondly referred to as ‘the towns best 19th hole’ and much loved by the many celebrities who visit.

Cozy wee pub. Excellent selection of drinks and food and snacks. Views of the old course. Great place to hear the golf chat and watch the golfers on the course. Will be back.

Stopped in for lunch. Good food and cold pints in an awesome setting right beside the Old Course. The pub has a great atmosphere and is worth a look!

Grab a St. Andrews Ale or Belhaven and step back in time. Split a meal mid afternoon. Sit by the hearth or out in the courtyard. Feels like Cheers from 1850.
