Restaurant review: Haar, St Andrews 49/50

May 18 2019

I’m kicking myself for not watching the recent series of MasterChef: The Professionals. Although it did mean that I experienced finalist Dean Banks’s new venture, Haar, without expectation or preconception. And, after meeting Dean, the concept makes perfect sense.

Restaurant review: The Jigger Inn, Old Course St Andrews 37/50

June 15 2019

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Jigger Inn. Its beer garden has one of the finest positions in the world, literally a golf ball’s throw from the fairway of the famous Road Hole.

Well, it turns out there was one on our doorstep all along and I didn’t even know. Don’t you just love it when you find a hidden gem?
