About 16 taps, including a bunch (8?) of cask (real ale) pumps. This is probably the most taps in town, excepting St. Andrews Brewing Co. which also has 16.

Friendly service. Quiet and mellow during an early evening visit.

Easy to find -- located just outside the old stone arch over South Street.

(Didn't try the food nor did I see anyone else with food).

The best selection i found in the couple days i spent in St. Andrews. I lucked into their once a year 2 day ale fest, so perhaps my experience isn't typical, but I suspect they are always pretty solid. Something on the order of 6-8 beers on cask. The crowd was mostly students, though did meet some nice retired scottish folk as well. Relatively simple but good food (sandwiches, etc.).

The two day ale fest, every year in may, is definitely worth seeking out. The place gets pretty crowded, but they bring in 10 cask beers from around the UK. Some pretty unique and solid stuff that i didn't see anywhere else in my UK travels. The selection ranged from unbelievable scottish ales at 3.3% to ipa's hopped with US hops, honey beers, spiced ales and authentic uk ipas. Drinking all 10 earns you a free t shirt. If you are trying to avoid the crowds but want to go to the fest get there when they open and you'll have a couple hours of quiet.

If you are in St. Andrews, this place was the best i saw. If you are planning to be in scotland in May, make a point to go to the ale fest.
