Goblin Ha Gifford – Restaurant Review

Oct 2009
Our latest visit to the Goblin Ha Hotel found really good friendly service, and solid menu. However the food didn’t hit the high notes. The steaks weren’t really tasty and a little chewy. New potatoes came plain with no butter, parsley, etc. The ice cream brownie cake also lacked taste and felt like it had been made too far in advance.

The place was busy though which shows they must be doing something right, certainly the atmosphere is warm and the staff looked after us on the night so we continue to recommend the Goblin Ha.

Jun 2008
New ownership in 2008, we risked a visit and found it back to normal, friendly service, a fairly substantial and interesting menu (not just country pug grub), clearly the managers are making a real effort, now recommended again

Feb 2007
New ownership, service dreadful when we visited, no longer recommended

Previously: We’ve eaten here many times and keep going back, the food is fairly traditional and service variable but the setting is great – choice of bar or conservatory in a pleasant East Lothian village.
