Located atop the Old Course Hotel, this is their premiere dining facility. Diners enjoy panoramic views of the 18th hole and the R & A Clubhouse in the distance.
Here you will find a formal, but welcoming atmosphere featuring regional Scottish meat and produce as well as an extensive wine list. Service is attentive, but not intrusive.
We dined here our first night at the hotel, which also happened to be Hubby's 40th birthday, not one he'll ever forget. He selected a Premier Cru 1994 Beaune for the meal and dined on the very British meal of beef rib roast with vegetables, potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. He finished with a selection of three Scottish cheeses.
We also ate dinner there on the final night of our stay having goat cheese salad, roasted red pepper soup, fillet of Angus beef with mashed potatoes, and apple pudding with cinnamon ice cream for dessert.
After dinner, if you have a hankering to try some of Scotland's malt whiskey, they can be enjoyed in the Road Hole bar next door.
The restaurant does double duty as the breakfast room. Enjoy a hearty Scottish breakfast of eggs, streaky bacon (similar to Canadian bacon, but more smokey), black pudding, potatoes, oatmeal and other breakfast items. Accompanied with coffee or tea, one is fortified for a full day on the links or touring the town.
