Welcome to The West Port

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.

Accessible for All

The West Port St Andrews is family friendly and entirely accessible. In addition to our varied menu, we have a dedicated menu for the health conscious with some “super-food” sides.

Please visit us at South Street in St Andrews and enjoy a great mix of traditional with contemporary.

We have a dedicated family area with toys and big comfy sofas to relax, enjoy a coffee and a bacon roll with friends. You can also enjoy lunch and tea choosing from our all day menu with seasonal specials.
