“Dinner out with family”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Another great night spent eating in comfort at The Golf Inn. The food is always well presented and delicious. 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 forward to returning very soon. Thanks guy's

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 the house wines. A great base for a very enjoyable golf trip!

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 and cooked to perfection, highly recommend the steak, venison scotch eggs or haggis Bon Bon. Great to see this sleeping beauty brought into the 21st century.

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. Everything was so fresh and delicious. We ventured through to the restaurant which was beautifully decorated and full of happy customers! They also have a fabulous sunny beer garden. The next time we go we will be sure to book in for the night and try out the A La Carte menu. Cant wait to go back . Thank you.

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 much bother.
We also had the great pleasure of meeting Derek Johnstone. Derek won Masterchef a few years ago and for one young very talented man to climb the tree of knowledge, business so quickly he obviously has a great head on his shoulders and a good team backing him.

Once we entered our rooms they were clean, bright full equipt with everything that you would need. Staff constantly asked us if we were okay? We were better than okay we were feeling absolutely great and on top of the world. Later on we went to have dinner. Well I have never tasted food like it in my life it was well presented, hot and gorgeously cooked to perfection.

The only way I can end this review is YOU MUST SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.
Thank you All at the Golf Inn for giving us a Ruby Wedding Anniversary that we will never forget. Keep up the good work. Derek is already up their with the best. Well Done. xcxcx

Room Tip: Any member of the team will do their very best for you. You must go and try it, it is amazing.
