Here's a sneak peek at what you can expect from The Bonnie Badger, which opened on Wednesday 12th December.
The hotel that was previously known as The Golf Inn has undergone a full refurbishment under the watchful eye of the Kitchin Group.
Dishes from The Bonnie Badger kitchen will follow Tom’s ‘From Nature to Plate’ ethos and will work closely with local Scottish farmers to source the best possible ingredients.
The menu will feature twists on pub and seasonal classics such as Steak pie with bone marrow (pictured below) and a Jerusalem artichoke and pearl barley risotto.
The Bonnie Badger’s dining room, The Stables, will be housed in a converted stable block, with restored wooden rafters vaulting over an open fire place surrounded by oak tables.
There are 14 individually designed bedrooms including a suite boasting a four-poster bed and roll top bath.
All of the interior design has created by Tom's Swedish-born wife and business partner Michaela and Stephen Paterson of Burns Design, with the interior blend of Scandinavian and Scottish design and taking inspiration from Scotland’s rich tapestry of natural resources .
Tom and Michaela say they have dreamt of having a pub with rooms for years, and that they've always been particularly fond of Gullane and the East Lothian area. So that when the opportunity arose, they had to take it.
