Open all year
Dog friendly

This welcoming place has an impressive reputation for both their beer and their food. In the bar you’ll find Belhaven IPA, draught Peroni and Scottish Borders Brewery bottled beers. Plus there’s a whisky map and tasting notes to study before choosing your single malt. There are two dining rooms, one overlooking the village green, and in both the menus feature home-made, locally-sourced food. Dinner might kick off with grilled langoustine, garlic and lemon butter, or chicken and black pudding terrine with spicy chutney and pickled vegetables, before moving on to roast partridge with saffron fondant potato and bramble jus; or pan-seared cod fillet with langoustine scampi. Desserts might feature sticky toffee pudding or red fruit pavlova.
