Restaurants in Gullane

For a small town with a population of under 3,000, Gullane is making its mark in the world of cuisine. 

The Main Street of Gullane boasts two Michellin Star restaurants, The Bonnie Badger and La Potiniére, which are just moments away from our Gullane properties.

The Bonnie Badger, together with Wee Folk of the Woods, offer foraging workshops discovering delectable pleasures in East Lothian followed by a 3-course meal inspired by your discoveries.

The Bonnie Badger, one of Tom Kitchin’s restaurants, holds the Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand 2022 and 5 AA Gold Stars. They provide afternoon teas, seasonal grills, bar classics and a la carte menus to suit every palate. 

La Potinière sources ingredients locally and nationally as well as utilising the produce grown in the restaurant’s very own garden. 

Owned by award-winning chefs Keith Marley and Mary Runciman, this restaurant has worked hard to earn its excellent reputation. 

For a taste of golfing history when dining in Gullane, there is The Old Clubhouse. This historic building was built in 1890 for the members of the original Gullane Golf Club. 

Nowadays it is home to a restaurant providing tasty pub food with a twist. It still holds strong ties to the local golfing community, with golfing and historical memorabilia adorning the walls. 

For a further taste of traditional pub food, take a trip to Haddington, a historical market town on the River Tyne.
