private hire

Situated in the heart of St. Andrews, Forgan’s restaurant and pub was born through the idea of a certain kind of Scottish hospitality. Through the ages, hillwalkers, visitors and travellers have found refuge, comfort and company in rural “Bothies”, a type of small building or shed, left open and available for passers-by to use as they wish. We loved this idea of sharing and accessible cosiness, so we decided Forgan’s should work on the exact same ethos. We even took it a step further and installed 4 standalone private Bothies for drinking and dining, all with a focus on being just as welcoming as a real life bothy.

With a focus on great tasting and ethically sourced produce, we work with the best local artisans who believe in sustainable agriculture. You’ll find an extensive selection of cocktails, wines and whiskies, and even our very own forgan’s ale, all best enjoyed with your favourite people and plenty of conversation.

It’s a space for living in and loving, so there won’t ever be any charge for booking a private Bothy, whether you are looking for a morning meeting spot, or a place by the fire to get the family together for a good old fashioned celebration.
