Overlooking the world-famous golf course and the coast beyond, The Old Course Hotel occupies a desirable position and offers a wide range of dining options. The Sands Grill is the more informal option, a contemporary brasserie run by slick, unstuffy staff. The kitchen looks around the globe for influence and a meal could begin with maple syrup-glazed pork ribs, smoked pepper chutney and coleslaw before a main course of Thai-style crab cake with sea bass, Asian salad and Oriental dressing. Sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream ice cream brings a meal to a more traditional British finish.
