    Lovely visit and help in finding the heather honey I was looking for as a gift for a friend. Friendly service and conversation and an interest in me as a visitor. I didn’t have much to buy but would love doing business here any day of the week and glad I stopped in. Good layout and a wide variety of items to consider.

    I always visit here when in St. Andrews. It’s bigger than the last time I was here so there’s a bit more breathing room but it’s maintained that tardis magic of nooks and catacombs! The glorious variety and selection of books aside, it is such a welcoming place. A good downpour outside kept us indoors for a while. One of the many friendly members of staff offered tea and coffee (with refills if required) whilst we sat by a fire and had a very enjoyable chat with others equally seeking shelter. Take time to sit and relax and enjoy the peace of being surrounded by books and reading an unplanned find. This place is wonderful.

    Artery in St Andrews is such a beautiful shop. So many different, hand crafted, individual pieces there’s so much to see. Also lovely candles and jewellery. We are big fans of Robert Ryan artwork and have been visiting Artery for many years now to see his collection. We’ve just bought our ninth piece from the shop and the Artery team are always so friendly and helpful. It’s great to hear the stories behind all the different items. If you are visiting St Andrews, visiting the shop is a must. A warm welcome awaits everyone and you won’t be disappointed!

    Not sure why the heading indicates this is closed?
    We parked nearby and stopped in just based on a signboard in front. It was a nice sunny day and we sat in the courtyard. The service was friendly and helpful. We opted to share the Wild Mushroom soup of the day and a vegetarian panini. Both were good. The soup was a bit bland for our taste. The panini was VERY large and infinitely shareable (thanks to our server's advice!). The bread was fresh and pleasant.

    The courtyard is small, but packed with 8 or so tables. The ambiance is OK, nothing special and you do sit among smokers and people with dogs.

    As other reviewers have suggested, the prices are NOT cheap. As we walked further into St. Andrews, we passed several other places with cheaper lunches and a bit better atmosphere for outside seating and people watching.

    Found this fabulous store by accident. Great selection of merchandise. High quality items. Diane was fabulous. She was like my personal shopper. And she wrapped each item so they make it home safely. Would return in a heartbeat.

    Truly a dream come true and a check off the "Bucket List"! We did not have time to play the course or enter the lottery to be considered for play. It was memorable to just be able to walk around this public course and observe the play that was going on. You are permitted to walk on the famous Swilken (Swilcan) Bridge that so many illustrious golfers have walked. You must be careful and watch out for balls because the golfers are playing through. A wonderful experience!

    Having walked past the shop in St.Andrews a few times i decided to step inside and have a look around. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly without being pushy. The shop is genuinely dog friendly and the staff really made a fuss of my dog. I would highly recommend a visit for some excellent advice.

    We stumbled upon this shop by chance when visiting St Andrews and couldn't help but pop in for a browse. There was so many lovely items in the shop that we enjoyed looking at and we ended up purchasing two crystal bracelets. The lady who served us was friendly and the atmosphere in the shop was really nice. We will definitely visit here again when in the local area.

    Came in looking for a good waistcoat to go with my rather niche-coloured jacket. There was a wide and excellent selection, the service was absolutely on point, no hesitation in helping me find just the right thing to go with the jacket.

    If they don’t have you can’t get it. Enormous whiskey selection, plus rum, gin, wine, beer and advise if you need it. Something for every budget.

    A real Aladdin's cave! Liked the look of the window, and wasn't disappointed! A real classy shop, with lots of goods, Christmassy just now, and not what you see in every shop in every town.

    Upstairs had a lovely curtain and design centre - perfect if redesigning your house.

    Some items were quite pricey (though very high quality, and worth it) - I bought a Christmas tree decoration of a peacock in brilliant colours. I thought I would treat myself - but was delighted when it only cost £6!

    Worthlooking in this shop, even if you do only window shop!
