Some would say St Andrews’ classiest bar, Number Forty is located at the back of The Golf Hotel, accessible by a sneaky passageway in the car park off North Street. During the day, it’s a lovely place to sit outside and work with an expensive cup of tea. Once the sun sets, the students filter through to drink cocktails and socialise in the comfy bar setting. Number Forty used to be a primarily fourth-year hangout, but now it seems to attract a much younger crowd, as well as guests staying at the hotel.
St Andrews Golf Hotel, 40 The Scores. Open seven days a week until 12am.
Price range… Expensive.
Perfect for… a sophisticated drink and to show off your new Mulberry handbag.
Avoid if… you don’t like spending a small fortune on drinks.
