Will Larter left this review about Central Bar

The Central Bar, appropriately, has a central bar: a substantial one with solid wood panelling and pillars and adorned with numerous hand pumps on three sides. On closer inspection these turned out to include a number of duplicated beers (Greene King Abbot, London Glory, Old Speckled Hen and Belhaven 80/-) plus four guests. I like this sort of layout, which I think of as being typically Scottish, and the beer was in pretty good condition too. Easily the best of the three we tried on our visit to St Andrews, and I would certainly want to include it on any future trip to this delightful small city. My only gripe would be that the sign indicating that a Camra discount is available was displayed on the wall on the way to the toilets, not on the bar.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Central Bar

I was surprised by the lack of obvious pubs in the centre of St Andrews, so I was pleased to spot the Central Bar which - even from a distance - gave the impression of being the sort of place where one might expect to find a decent pint. As a Taylor Walker-branded bar, you would expect an interesting interior and so it proved to be with an attractive island bar layout, comfortable furniture and traditional decor. Small patio tables out front. Helpful staff. Beer-wise, there were many duplicates and others with "cask conditioning" labels on, so the available choice was Deuchard IPA, Pride, Old Peculier, Inveralmond Lia Fail (£3.29 including a 10% Camra discount, and in good form) and Old Rosie cider. However, at a busier time of year, one might expect a bigger selection. Overall, I thought it pretty good for a pubco chain outlet.
