All very average to be honest. Met up with friends last month as a spur-of-the-moment thing. It was reasonably busy but the bar/waiting staff seemed to be doing a rushed-off-our-feet-too-much-to-give-you-attention. Eating out in the UK these days just seems to be such a hit or...More

We were visiting friends overnight in Gullane and they took us to dinner at the Old Clubhouse. The chef was kind enough to give my grandson a small helping of haggis as one of his school friends with Scottish connections had told him to taste...More

We were invited by friends, who are members of the golf course, for tea at The Old Clubhouse. The four of us all opted for tea and scones. The leaf tea was really good quality; the scones were home-made, still warm and delicious, served with...More

Visited for lunch, there is always a good variety of quality locally sourced produce, however - they appear to be gearing more towards the golfing/tourist client base and aren't the most child friendly. Oh dogs are welcome!

The Old Clubhouse is situated in central Gullane, overlooking the locally famed links course. Built in 1890, this attractive half-timbered venue was originally intended to be a meeting place for Gullane���s golfers, and though the club soon outgrew it, The Old Clubhouse remains popular with those fresh off the greens and maintains the exclusive ambience of a members club, with its reputation for fine food and warm welcome spreading far beyond the town itself. Unsurprisingly, a strong golfing theme is seen throughout the bar, with plenty of old photographs of the course and the club as well as quirky memorabilia dotted around the space, cosy club chairs and deep banquettes providing comfortable seating, encouraging you to stay and relax beyond your meal. Drawing on local produce, The Old Clubhouse���s menu is eclectic and inspiring, particularly known for its steaks and fish, the central offerings of the mainly pub-food-with-a-twist collection of dishes. The wine list is as well considered as the food offerings, and The Old Clubhouse has recently become known for homemade ice creams and sorbets, the ideal treat after a hard morning of stick and ball.
