Set on the very edge of the Muirfield championship golf course is a stunning Edwardian country house full of regal charm. This house is the stunning Greywalls Hotel, home to Chez Roux, a fantastical Franco-Scottish dining experience. In rooms of British racing green, on furniture upholstered in gloriously appropriate tartan guests enjoy a French feast overlooking Muirfield’s 10th tee. Professional and attentive service is a Chez Roux standard as is the fine selection of wines and – of course – wide range of malt whiskies. Bringing together the best of Scottish ingredients with the finest French skills, the kitchen has accomplished an impressive, decadent and extremely special menu set to get the UK’s gastronomes talking.

    We chose this restaurant for our 50th wedding anniversary as we were married close by in Nth Berwick. The initial impression of the restaurant and setting was excellent. Our table was perfect and overlooked the golf course. We were given the menu and wine list and my wife requested a vegetarian option which was on a separate menu, but with limited choice. We chose our wine from the list but was informed that it was not available so we chose another recommended by the waiter. The wine was acceptable but not the one we wanted. The description of my starter, a seafood concoction, was detailed and very long - unfortunately the dish itself was minuscule and consequently difficult to judge whether it was good or not . My wife's starter was a cheese souffle and excellent. I chose duck breast for the main course and requested that it was just pink. I was assured it would be. The dish arrived with two very rare slabs of meat on something - it looked and tasted awful. My wife ordered a cheese gnocchi with a poached hen's yolk. Luckily we had the description otherwise we would have had no idea what it was. The dish was most unattractive and could not be described as a 'main' course. She left most of it, the little there was, as it was just unappetizing. For pudding I chose a lemon tart which was very good and my wife had a selection of cheeses to make up for her awful main course. The cheeses were very acceptable. We did not stay for coffee or after dinner drinks as we just wanted to leave. Our overall impression therefore was of extreme disappointment. We were looking forward to an excellent dinner to celebrate our anniversary and the evening was ruined. We have eaten in the Roux restaurant in Bray and that was, as it should be, very good. Luckily the following evening we went to a 'pop up' restaurant in a delicatessen in Nth Berwick and the complete meal for both of us was truly excellent. We would not return to Grey walls.

    Greywalls is an unusual perhaps unique eatery. It's combination of Lutchens and Jekyll background with the addition of Chez Rous style and a golfing twist simply make it a must visit experience. The building is unusual, the garden is memorable and the food is at the fine end of fine dining. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Overall experience very good apart of couple of issues First -waiting too long for food and bill at the end. Staff just ignored us at the end,,,,,even if we asked about bill....we have been wating about 15/20minutes for it. Food amazing very well presented. Interior decoration very out dated-needs a bit fresh look especially curtains they don not match the chairs. Kind Regards Guest

    The welcome was warm and friendly but there was a big party being catered for and so we were left with our aperitifs for nearly half an hour before ordering. The library where we waited was pleasant but the piano music was too loud making it difficult to converse. The wine was excellent, though expensive, The belly pork was on the menu as coming with spinach but was served with white cabbage, something I dislike and so would not have chosen. The crackling on the pork was not crisp but chewy. Otherwise my comments would be that the food was fine but portions small. A bugbear of mine is being interrupted to be asked if everything is ok. This should not happen and is intrusive and I was disappointed to be subjected to it at Chez Roux.

    The location is great and the staff were, without exception, friendly and helpful. The "amuse bouche" were light and tasty. I chose the split pea soup as starter - sadly, it was not very flavourful, (not offensive either to be fair) - the soft egg was easily the best part. The main course, (Aberdeen Angus), surprised my wife and I as we were given serrated knives to eat it ... we're old enough to remember the 80's - not at all what we expected here as we thought that we had moved beyond this ... we've eaten cheaper, tastier, more tender, steaks from supermarkets. I did not try any desserts but the Passionfruit souffle looked lovely (as did all the desserts) and the "Petits-Fours" went down a treat with those who could eat them!

    Chez Roux, Gullane, East Lothian From start to finish this place is something special. From the minute you arrive the service is amazing.The food was what you'd expect from Albert Roux, just as good to look at as to eat. For a special treat it's the perfect place. It's even better if you're a golfer as it overlooks Muirfield golf course.

    Chez Roux restaurant in East Lothian (Gullane) A wonderful evening, very good value indeed for such indulgent and perfectly prepared and delivered food. The welcome was great, massive log fires with overstuffed sofas and a library full of great books. Amuse bouche and drinks served here, dinner ordered and served beautifully by extremely pleasant staff. Wine superb (although by the glass) as we are fairly light drinkers. I had a souffle for desert... manificent!

    Another very pleasant lunch at CHEZ ROUX within the relaxing and comfortable Greywalls Hotel.Perhaps not quite so good as our first visit the food was good and the staff were just as nice but one or two odd hitches arose. We were most surprised that some time after our order we were told that there was no Bream.This despite it being on the set menu for the day and us being the first dinersThis was explained by staff as a delivery failure.There also a shortage of set dessert.Strange!

    Chez Roux at Greywalls lived up to every expectation especially when it came to the level of service. A tremendously good dining experience enjoyed by all six in the party. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this particular Chez Roux.

    Chez Roux at Greywalls, Muirfield did not disappoint. Surprisingly busy on a Thursday evening with a menu offering something for everyone with 3 courses for £28 or the a la Carte. Started with a generous portion of smoked salmon with beetroot and horseradish cream. Main course was venison with a delicious fennel tart and couldn't resist the souffle for dessert. Service was good and a great selection of wine by the glass and half bottle too which is handy if you're driving. Highly recommended.

    Tried Chez Roux at Gullane near Edinburgh for the first time on 21 July. I was expecting the food to be good but it surpassed my expectations. Decided to go for the A la Carte menu rather than the 3 courses for £28 just because there was more seafood available. Smoked salmon to start followed by huge scallops then finished off with a hazelnut souffle. Great selection of wine too. Would recommend a visit. Fabulous setting too.

    Visited Chez Roux at Greywalls in Gullane for Special Offer Lunch. Food was true fine dining in a lovely dining room. Lovely canapes while waiting to be taken into the dining room and coffee with petit fours in the library after all included in the incredible price of £25 for 3 courses. an excellent experience in every way. Highly recommended

    Chez Roux in Gullane was a truely memorable event, the food was lovely and the staff were very attentive. They also do a Roux express menu in the bar which is like tapas with a small tastes of every course for £15.50 which we will go back and try. If there was any critisim it was that we could have done with a few more pieces of fish tempura for the main course as only got 4 and 1 more would have been better. Restaurant and hotel are elegant, shame the signage to get you there looks cheap.
