Highly recommend The Golf Inn. Family friendly, great service and super ambiance. Close to Old Course and even has a sea View! The food was superb, fresh fish and we'll cooked. Excellent value and fab kids menu. Definitely call in for food if passing.

Hello JML Thanks for your kind words... Delighted to hear you and the family enjoyed yourselves... The sea view is a wee secret really, as there are only 3 tables that get it, my favourite is the one upstairs on the mez floor,,, great place to hang out for an afternoon of food and chat... and drinks of-course! ......as for...

We visited on a Saturday evening. Lovely welcome and service excellent. Busy but not crowded. Menu was the usual and probably priced a wee bit high. Fish and chips was good. Burgers were nicely presented but tasted/ texture a bit processed. Good range of drinks and nice to be able to watch golf on screen.

Hi Ruth S Thanks for popping in, glad you mostly enjoyed your visit, I've mentioned your comments to Pat our head chef, he's going to review our butcher meat supplier as we intend only to serve fresh good quality meats, The meats we do have are certainly not processed, but maybe there's room for improvement if that what our customers...

Was full of trepidation at the thought of reviewing the Golf Inn as the owner Alex comes across as a Simon Cowell type character with his no holds barred, honest feedback on feedback (nice to see). No problems here, the Inn is half a sand wedge from the beloved 18th green on the Old Course and is clearly a hit... More

Hi There, Thanks for your review... This made me chuckle... however, I'm no Simon, just a business owner, that's says it as I (or my staff) see it... if we are at fault or don't get things right we say so and apologise, however, if we get harsh opinions that have little to no grounds then we share our opinion......

This is a pub with a number of rooms. It is extremely well fitted out and it's amazing just how many people can be accommodated for meals. We had soup and sandwiches and they were terrific, as well as being reasonably good value. Plenty of choice for draught beer and lager. Staff were young and very friendly. Would certainly go...
