“Poor service”

Description: 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.

Went here on a lovely sunny evening, expecting it to be busy but it was quiet. This maybe should've given us a clue!! Customer service has really gone downhill. No one greeted us as we came in, stood about for a few minutes, then a barmaid called to us from behind the bar, questioning us as to had we booked! She then proceeded to point us to a table whilst still behind the bar! It would have been nice to have been shown to a table considering there was only 2 other tables occupied! We ordered then waited 25 minutes for our main courses which were only passable. Wouldn't recommend

The Old Clubhouse at Machrihanish has superb views over the beach from Machrihanish to Westport. Food is good albeit a bit expensive but it is worth it

Sullen bar and wait staff. Unhelpful in assisting with gluten free menu selection; salad entree and Gamon main only options.Overpriced food and wine. One place to avoid!
