Live locally and had a lunch there over a year ago, thought it was good and reviewed accordingly. Now new management and in my view a change for the better. Wife is a fan of battered haddock and chips and reckoned that this was equal to some of the best she has had. The steak and ale pie was good... More

Although a meal had to be returned due to meat being too fatty this was quickly rectofied. The meal was relaxed and spent with family. As always the desserts were beautiful. The friendly staff ensure everything runs smoothly and we look... More

I stayed with a group of golfing friends for 2nights playing local courses. The rooms have been refurbished and were attractive and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even baking scones freshly for us when we arrived at tea time! Breakfasts were excellent and the restaurant food in the evening was superb and very good value, as were... More

Excellent location to the golf course. Great hotel and restaurant. They were very accommodating and even let us use their big dryer when my sons golf gear got soaking wet from the rain. We had the Muirfield Suite which is basically a 3 bedroom en suite.

We stayed here during the first part of a golf vacation. Nikki and staff were exceptionally friendly. We ate at the restaurant once and the food was first class. The location was within walking distant to the Gullane golf club which we played our first day in town.

Having visited this pub many times over the years, it Is wonderful to have seen the most recent changes. A modern feel without having lost it's character or charm. Host, Nikki and her team offer friendly, professional service. Nothing seems to much trouble. Good selection of beers and wines. Superb bar menu with great traditional pub classics with fantastic ingredients... More

My husband and I arrived at the New Golf Inn for a light lunch and what a lovely surprise! We ate in the bar where there was a lovely real fire burning, a great atmosphere and huge TV screen so we could also enjoy the Golf! We both had the Club Sandwich which was the most delicious I have tasted.... More

Four of us booked our accommodation for an overnight stay to celebrate our Double Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Never in our wildest dreams did we think it would turn out totally awesome. From the moment we stepped into the The Golf Inn we were treated like royalty. All the staff were very polite, helpful and well turned out. Nothing was too... More

Just over half an hour by car from Edinburgh, this is a restaurant that we have visited many times, mainly in summer months. Only when we arrived for lunch on Sunday last did we discover that ownership had changed, and what a dramatic change it is. A truly warm and smiling welcome, and tasteful refurbishment which has transformed the restaurant... More
