The food is good. The location is brilliant. The beer is good. The service is poor. We’re here every few months with extended family and we now joke amongst ourselves about the rudeness of the staff. We have to apologise for ordering an additional item...More

Cannot rate this place enough. As a regular visitor to Scotland, this pub is one of the highlights of my visits. Fabulous traditional food. The Haggis, Neeps and Tatties are a must and the best Cullen Skink ever! Staff are always friendly and the service...More

Little changes and the formula seems to work,the regular stream of visitors to Gullane must be a great help.Inevitably prices rise generally but her they seem to be heading upwards a little quicker.

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.
