Bar at Forgan’s, St Andrews, Scotland

Forgan’s

Housed in a former golf factory is the stylized, cozy Forgan’s. With newspaper print wallpaper, fishing net accents and moss green velvet chairs, it is an inspired interpretation of Scottish design. Set just around the corner from sister restaurant Mitchell, the hip spot serves similar, but slightly less impressive, cuisine. The atmosphere, however, is decidedly more convivial: family-friendly events like knitting classes and story time are held during the day, while nighttime entertainment can include live performances and ceilidh dancing (a traditional Gaelic dance).

Food at Mitte, St Andrews, Scotland

Mitchell

What was once the town butcher shop is now a trendy, charming restaurant with delicious farm-to-table food and a bevy of fine wines. Mitchell delivers a fun setting (and live music on weekends) for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the gourmet market in the front is perfect for picking up charcuterie and cous cous salads for a picnic nearby. For dinner, the cuisine is a touch more sophisticated, but still cozy with dishes like confit pork belly and a chicken and wild mushroom tartine. For little ones, there is a kids menu with reliable hits like fish fingers and mac and cheese.

Food at The Adamson, St Andrews, Scotland

The Adamson

The Adamson flourishes under the guidance of Scott Davies, a finalist on Master Chef in 2013. The upscale spot resides in the town’s former post office, and is one of the most elegant offerings in St Andrews, perfect for a special occasion. There is a daily set menu with two or three courses, as well as an a la carte menu serving “Adamson Favorites,” like sweet potato and cheddar gnocchi with artichoke, and confit lamb with cauliflower cheese puree and braised lettuce. It is a must for serious foodies, but families will also find a well-rounded kids menu and plenty of options for picky eaters. The cocktails are also creative and well executed.

Exterior - The Jigger Inn, St Andrews, Scotland

The Jigger Inn

Housed in a whitewashed cottage that was once the stationmaster’s lodge, the Jigger Inn is rife with St Andrews’ rich history. Just steps from the 17th hole, the walls are covered with golf memorabilia from days gone by, and the bar menu is heavy on aged Scottish whiskies. If you’re visiting during the summer, be sure to sit on the restaurant’s patio, where you have a front row seat to the golfing action.

Exteriors at night - The Seafood Restaurant, St Andrews, Scotland

The Seafood Restaurant

Come for the breathtaking view as much as the delicious seafood. Overlooking—and overhanging—the sea, this beautiful glass and steel structure is one of St Andrews’ best eateries. The predominantly fish and shellfish menu is accompanied by one of the best wine lists in the region. Try to come for dinner when the sun is setting—the panoramas of the North Sea are much more beautiful by night
