Popped in here for a quick lunch while motorcycling back to Edinburgh from Dunbar on a weekday afternoon in May. My friend had the tomato soup, which was apparently very nice but the accompanying bread wasn't so good... a bit 'firm' (let's say). My mussels...More

Bank holiday Monday, hot sunny day, The Old Clubhouse was super busy. However the staff were organised, calm friendly and professional. The food was superb. Much better organised than many more upmarket restaurants. Highly recommend.

I’ve been to the Old Clubhouse many times and I’ve never been let down with the standard of food or service. I ordered the mutton curry and that was really tasty.

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.
