Rufflets' Literary and Pie Society

A Pie, A Pint and a Book

Rufflets, in partnership with the local bookshop, has become a bookworm's heaven, where the love of a good book is accompanied by a scrumptious pie and a refreshing pint (or a glass of wine!) all wrapped up in the peace and tranquillity of our historic gardens.

What better combination?

On a monthly rotation, our friends at the St Andrews bookshop will carefully choose a fiction novel and wrap it in parchment paper, ready to surprise Rufflets visiting readers. Immerse yourself while you enjoy your favourite pie and a pint - all for a very healthy £29.50 per person. 

Experts in their fields

The first Thursday of every month at 6.30pm, Rufflets' Literary and Pie Society will feature a talk from an upcoming book author, a gardener, a chef, a psychologist, a reverend, a scientist, a yoga instructor, a musician and a 'life doctor', to mention a few, on topical and sublime subjects of interest and curiosity.

Admission is free, with the purchase of a Pie, a Pint and a Book.
