|If you like golf, you're sorted here. If you don't - well, have a beer. The Jigger Inn (the name comes from an iron golf club) used to be the St. Andrews train station, before the line was terminated at Leuchars. It is completely out of the way of almost all of the St. Andrews students, so ideal if you need to get away from them, although you should keep an eye out for any stray golf balls that may hit you on the journey over to its mildly hidden location. :o) It's larger than you first expect, although it's certainly not big (three main areas - the bar, a 'lounge' and the conservatory at the back) and there's every piece of golf paraphinalia on the walls you could imagine. Do what I do - pay no attention, and concentrate on the drinking... :o)|
This pub / inn is mainly geared towards spirits, although Guinness (£2.60), Carlsberg (£2.40) and Belhaven Best (£2.40) all make an appearance. They are all well kept, with a couple of real ales as well, if I remember right. Watch out for the Coke, though - the price is high, and the bottles are small, so it's a good job I like my Jack neat. Although food is available, I've never tried it, as again, the price is quite steep.
Overall, this is a nice place to come with some friends for a few quiet beers. It's definitely a somewhere to create your own entertainment, as there is little provided, but it's quiet and not unfriendly.
