At The Golf Inn we are lucky to be able to take advantage of Scotland’s extensive larder, sourcing quality Scottish ingredients. Our menus change with the seasons, making the most of the natural produce from our local area and further afield in Scotland. This allows our customers to experience a ‘Taste of Scotland’ as well as supporting local suppliers and businesses.
With the Firth of Forth on our doorstep we are spoilt for choice with all the fresh fish and wonderful seafood. Our creel caught lobsters and crabs are supplied by Jack Dale who fishes from the smallest harbour in Europe at Seacliff, East Lothian. With an abundance of fresh fish from the North Sea our local fisherman, John Dickson in Port Seton, visits Edinburgh Fish Market daily to supply us with the best fish all year round. Our Whisky Smoked Salmon is supplied by Belhaven Smokehouse in Dunbar using Glenkinchie Whisky Barrels for smoking to achieve a truly Scottish taste.
We source our meat from various locations throughout Scotland. Our Pedigree Angus Beef is supplied by our Butcher David Henderson, sourcing the very best Scotch Beef from the Black Isle. Our charcuterie products are supplied by Robin and Alison Tuke at Tombuie Smokehouse, Kelso. All of our game products are supplied by Craig Stevenson at Braehead Foods.
Vegetables, Salads and Fruits
We buy Scottish vegetables, salad and fruit wherever possible, this is predominately dictated by seasonality and weather. We purchase our vegetables from George Anderson based in MacMerry, East Lothian. We source local berries from Belhaven Fruit Farm in Dunbar. We also grow our own herbs and edible flowers in The Golf Inn’s garden.
Eggs and Dairy
We use Scottish free-range eggs in our dishes and desserts. Our dairy products come from the award-winning family run Yester Farm Dairies, just outside the picturesque East Lothian village of Gifford. Our cheese comes from all over Scotland including Mull, Tain and Durnoch. In addition, we use only Scottish butter and milk from Graham’s Dairy in Elgin. The majority of our ice cream is homemade using Scottish produce.
In the last few years there has been a revolution in Scottish drink production. Here at the Inn, ‘on tap’ we offer Scottish McEwans 70c, Edinburgh’s Innis and Gun lager as well as the ever-popular Tennents lager and Belhaven Best. We have recently introduced Schiehallion lager, brewed in Alva in the lowlands of Scotland. We have a Guest Ale that changes weekly and showcases some of the great real ales being produced in Scotland. Our bar stocks a range of Scottish whiskies from every part of Scotland including our own blended whisky from Glengoyne Distillery. We also offer the incredibly popular NB Gin and Vodka, which is produced by a small family owned distillery in North Berwick.
