St Andrews - Pompey Ranger Review
This store is in the quaint cathedral (ruined by reformation mob) town of St Andrews with its posh old worldy feel it's the Winchester of Scotland. The store Nestles in between a Sainsburys and a pub on the wide cobbled road with a subway nearby on the lower area of Market road. Parking seemed ample and is charged 9am to 5pm at 50p for first half hour and up in increments which seemed reasonable.
Welcomed into store by a keen host and given choice of where to sit, the store is like a tardis, much larger on the inside than the outside. It goes back a long way with a high roof at the back and continues around the back. The tidy and spacious toilets are at the back down a couple of stairs apart from the disabled toilet. There is a interesting pair of sinks in the toilet made with oil drums and the striped tiles have a some what zebra feel to them. The section around the corner has part glazed/ coloured tiles in a weave type pattern which is lit from below by a line of led lights hidden behind the benches. Lots of quality art work abound this store including a few signature pieces. In the main section there are wire hoops linked by red cord which make up large lampshades.
The food could have been better as the mash and rice portions were quite small, the chicken breast was a good size but the skin was charred beyond my liking so i had to remove it before eating and it had a negative effect on the attached wing. Staff were attentive checking regularly and trying to do secondary selling.
