The Vic

The VIC is a twin venue of sorts, like the olsens, except everyone here is a healthy eater and we don't see ourselves being billionaires anytime soon. That's because we are all about cheap as chips food, shin digs befitting of this ancient old town, cocktails, fairytales, and pretty much anything else we can get away with doing in a licensed premises that won't result in our long suffering manager and his associates spending a casual weekend in the jailhouse.

Luvian's Bottle Shop

Since it was founded over twenty seven years ago, Luvians has been dedicated to providing the best of everything. As a specialist, independent drinks retailer, our philosophy is to be different from the crowd. We quickly realised that there was no point in being ordinary because there were others out there who were a lot better than us at it, so we had to be out-of-the-ordinary.


Our range of wines and spirits is unparalleled and is constantly changing, offering a selection of the very finest wines from the Old and the New World.


We also stock over 800 single malt whiskies including some of the very rarest, such as two bottles of the World’s oldest Single Malt Whisky – Mortlach 70 year old!


The Unofficial Guide to Medicine


We are a textbook series that follows a peer-led publishing model. Students and junior doctors write the material, specialists check for factual accuracy, and students review the effectiveness as a learning resource. The model has won prizes from the BMA, the British Institute of Radiology (BIR), the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME), and the Medical Women's Federation (MWF).


We currently have six titles and are working with students and junior doctors to expand the series. For opportunities to get involved, join our mailing list, and send an email to

West Port Bar & Kitchen

The West Port is located at the west end of St Andrews’ South Street and is a welcoming haven for travellers and locals alike.

It is a lively meeting place for coffee & cake early morning through to dinner late in the evening. A wide ranging menu with something for everyone in light, contemporary setting with traditional comforts, a beautiful garden and a dedicated area for your wee people.
We are named after the historical West Port gate which is Scotland’s best surviving example of a fortified gate and a great introduction to the medieval heart of St Andrews. The West Port is one of the very few examples of a medieval city gate remaining in Scotland. Built in 1589 and renovated in 1843, it stands at the bottom of St Andrews’ South Street providing an imposing welcome to the town centre – just the effect its builders wished it to have, over 400 years ago.
