World Saxophone Congress 2012, St Andrews, Scotland


St Andrews has many fine eateries, cafes, pubs and places you can relax during your time here.

Here are a few below, some of them have downloadable pdf vouchers but also look out for vouchers in your welcome packs!

Aikman's and Cellar Bar - (32 Bell Street) is the place to be for a cheeky pint with friends. Both the local population and those travelling from further afield know Aikman's for the quality of its food as well as for the widest and probably most interesting Drinks list. This year, they celebrated their 20th year in the CAMRA "Good Beer Guide". Complementing this with live music at least 3 times a week, Aikman's is the musician's favourite!
Gorgeous - (7 Bell Street) is a small but cosy café right in the centre of town. It features a bounty of baked goods as well as superior coffee, and the scones are the worst-kept secret among the student population! The soups and paninis are great for an on-the-go lunch, but don't be fooled by the small shop opening - there's a spacious upstairs, perfect for forgetting the bustle of the town for an hour or two.
Ma Bells - the Prince of Pubs (40 The Scores) forms a great night life for residents of the hotel and a great haunt for the students and locals alike. Weekends are lively with guest DJs and Bands. With its huge selection of lagers and imported bottled beers it will give you plenty to choose from. If these aren't to your taste why not try something from their extensive range of spirits and cocktails. There is also a fabulous food menu available in Ma Bells, from lunch in a Jiffy to a Homemade Ma Burger.

10% discount on all food in Ma Bells, served between 12 noon and 9.30pm

Balaka - a family-run restaurant, serving high quality Bangladeshi/Indian cuisine to the people of this beautifully historic town for the last 29 years. The head chef has been with the restaurant for 26 of those years. Balaka prides itself on using the finest ingredients, sourcing these locally whenever possible, in addition to the produce from their half-acre organic herb garden located to the rear of the kitchen. Having this type of fresh ingredient makes the cuisine very special. Feel free to ask the staff for a tour of the garden when you visit!
