The pub is located a stone’s throw from the famous Muirfield golf course and is just 30 minutes from Edinburgh.

It was officially opened today by the award-winning chef Tom Kitchin and his team.

The hotel dates back to 1836 and was previously known as the The Golf Inn, but it’s undergone  a full refurbishment and features 14 bedrooms, a bar, a 60-cover dining room and an outdoor garden.  

Designed by Tom’s wife and business partner Michaela Kitchin and Stephen Paterson of Burns Design, the interior takes inspiration from Scotland’s rich tapestry of natural resources,  in a blend of Scandinavian and Scottish design which has become synonymous with the Kitchin Group’s restaurants.
