Great location with views of the beach. Child-friendly with good kids menu. Fish and chips really tasty. Beer selection fairly average - best to go for bottles if you want real ale as they have Loch Fyne. Staff attentive to kids and very welcoming. Clean, efficient service.

Warm welcome to some happy campers. No problem in finding us a quiet corner to enjoy a drink and a game of cards with the kids. Who can complain? I've cream for the kids and Magners for the adults. Thanks for the hospitality!

We ate here twice food was great and the staff were on the ball, prices were very very good. Worth a visit even just for an ice cream on a hot or a three course meal.

We were told to go to The Old Clubhouse, which is a Sister Restaurant to the Harbour Grill, in Campbeltown, as it was very good. We'd been in it before, many years ago, when it was a Pub, but not since it became a restaurant. We both had the Fish Cakes for starters and out came 2 large fish cakes... More

The Old Clubhouse is small and comfortable with great views. The food is really fantastic and portions are large " very large" and the quality is great. After a long day on the links there is nowhere nicer to go. Try the " World Famous Haggis Nachos " you won't be disappointed. If you don't like haggis try the Auld... More

I had a lovely evening meal in here with my Family. It was a wild night outside but lovely and warm inside. The selection of food was really good with a lot of local produce. My wife was wanting to try a new whisky and the staff where very good at advising the different types especially Emily.

We were visiting Kintyre on a day trip and stopped here for lunch! It was a beautiful day and the views across the bay were spectacular! The food we ordered was delicious, the sandwiches were packed with filling and the side chips were very tasty. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you.

We were a larger group arriving later in the evening. The food was great and the staff looked after us very well. The pub has a great atmosphere with low lighting and a traditional wood styled interior. We've been there a few times and it's been great every time. The menu has plenty selection, portions are generous and everyone in... More

The Old Clubhouse Pub has been the site of good times and warm welcomes since 1876 when it served as the original clubhouse of the Machrihanish Golf Club back in the days of "Old" Tom Morris. The atmosphere at The Old Clubhouse is one of a relaxed old-world style golf pub serving up delicious pub food and locally sourced dinner offerings before becoming the host of nightly revelry for locals and guests alike.
