Had a great night here Christmas Eve for catch up drinks. The place was busy and had a great atmosphere. Met up with my sister and her fiancé who had a meal there that night. We love this place and feel so lucky that it's right on our doorstep. Wishing you all a Happy New Year 217 🍾🎉

A great pub that we found by accident as we made our way towards North Berwick. Beautiful inside with a nice cosy atmosphere. We all had the prawn sandwich for lunch which included chips and coleslaw. Alternatively we could have had a choice of soups with it or salad. The staff were very friendly and the service was quick.

Great food, and Sunday roast was great. Pink beef and extra yorkshires as requested. Lovely beef which was definitely carved for us, and not heated up. Chicken was lovely, and trout perfect. Starters of Calamari and pate were first class. We shared a rhubarb and ginger trifle..... very very good. Well priced drinks, and very attentive staff. We left very... More

Dear Donald, Why would you write a review saying that we are expensive after visiting us over a year ago.!!!! Our prices reflect the quality of food, the superb selection of wines ,beers and spirits, the unique setting and the fantastic staff and atmosphere. I would also like to point out that we never raise our prices no matter what... More

Dear Wenrho, I have spoken to the manager who asked you to keep your dog on the floor yesterday and she assured me that she only explained that dogs were always welcome as long as they were kept on a lead and on the floor. We have many other customers who do not have pets and therefore do not appreciate... More

A great day at the adjacent golf course topped off by a splendid meal at this very quirky pub. Very friendly and competent staff. An extensive menu - a great choice of beers ad wine and a pub decorated with a plethora of unusual of photos and objects. My steak was A!

On a wet Saturday afternoon, which transformed itself into sunshine we popped into this pub and had a delicious bowl of Cullen Skink. Absolutely lovely and highly recommended.

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.
