Disappointing meal...we have eaten there before and were impressed by the quality of the food and the presentation. I looked at the restaurant menu prior to our visit and we were looking forward to specific dishes, however we were not offered that menu and ate from the bar menu. The food was ok but not special... on checking the whereabouts... More

Thanks for the review Jacqui M We are disappointed that you could not be offered the menu you looked at on our website. The chef that designed the menu you favoured left TGI last week and we have removed the menu from service. I will ensure the website is updated to reflect this. Exciting times are ahead for TGI as...

We dined at the Golf Inn during a recent weekend break in the Gullane area and don't have too much to say other than to recommend that the owners perhaps consider shifting their focus a bit more towards what would seem to be their ideal market rather than trying to appear 'high end' and not being able to deliver?

Thanks for the detailed feedback on your experience at The Golf Inn. Our Cullen Skink is made from the finest ingredients and in our opinion can be offered on any menu and our vision is to be anything but pretentious. We are sorry you feel this was our intention.

Visited here at the weekend after a walk along the beach. It's a very cosy, nice restaurant and the food I did have was nice. The main downfall was the lack of vegetarian options. There was one choice on the menu (a main). We were offered the vegetarian menu but this only had one extra dish - so 2 choices... More

Went for dinner on Friday night while staying in the village. Food was tasty and the service was good. Bar is dog friendly so we stayed on for a few additional drinks after dinner.

Visited this lovely little place on Sunday evening for some dinner through a friends recommendation and we weren't disappointed, hands down best haggis Bon bons ever, soooo yummy! Also loved the butternut squash ravioli which I've had before at archerfield walled garden restaurant and this was even better than there! Thanks to derek the chef and his team!! :)

It's that sort of restaurant from which I'd say, I know this great place you should really go to! whenever someone will tell me they're going to East Lothian.
