It is a great location for exploring...

The exterior looks very quaint, the inside décor is a bit dated though. We were out for a coastal run on a sunny day and decided to stop here for a late lunch. There seemed to be only two young girls working the restaurant and bar. I opted for the Southern Fried Chicken Burger, which didn't taste southern fried at...

Just had the most amazing weekend at the Golf in Crail. I can honestly say that I have never visited a friendlier and more welcoming place. Not 5 star if you are looking for luxury but 5000 stars otherwise. Feels like home and was so sad to leave. Will be back ASAP Go and enjoy the warmth and enjoy.
