A local pub has toasted being named one of the best in Scotland by politicians.
The Criterion in St Andrews was the Scottish runner-up in the first-ever Parliamentary Pub of the Year challenge.
Local MPs nominated hostelries for the competition, which recognises the important role of pubs in British life.
Criterion proprietor Steve Latto said: “The Criterion has a very diverse customer base. It’s a melting pot. We have students, OAPs, tourists – everybody comes in and what we really like about it is everybody talks to each other. We are a pub where conversation is key and I think that is, in a nutshell, what a traditional pub should be.”
The Criterion was beaten only by The Brass and Granite, Kilmarnock, but judges were so impressed by it they put it through to the final. The overall champion will be announced next Tuesday.
