SCOTLANDS BEST PUB 2014
Located at 87 Market street right in the centre of St Andrews, The Keys Bar is open 7 days a week.
The Keys Bar is one of the only independent bars still operating in the town and has been owned and run by the Gordon family for around 30 years.
Carol Gordon was always the face behind the bar and this role has now been taken over by her lovely daughter Claire.
Established in 1858
The keys was originally called the Stewart Hotel in the mid 18th century and then renamed the Cross Keys in 1858.
Back in those days the royal and ancient golf club held their spring and autumn dinner balls here before the members were piped from outside the pub to the old course for start of play.
Carol and Stuart Gordon came to St Andrews in 1979 and have been here ever since. Carol unfortunately passed away of Motor Neurone Disease in 2012 but Claire has kept her legacy going strong with lots of charity events and golf events raising awareness of the Disease.
