The Meadow House is an unusual pub by today's standards. No chrome, tv's, leather, little lights in the floor or pictures that look like someone threw the paint at the canvas blindfolded!To sum it up, we are a family run, unpretentious rural country pub, that aims to provide great quality home cooked food and service at a fair price; that's it!Since the early days of the A1 highway we have regularly been known as 'The First and Last Pub in England' as the Scottish Border is only a mile away.Our main emphasis is our food. Over the last 30 years we have built up a great reputation for serving only the finest quality fresh local produce from all around the borders, and lots of it!We are lucky to have great team of staff that are as interested in the business as we are. Our enthusiastic head chef Adam Bettison is relentless in his quest for ever improving our food. With help from David Hearn, the owner and chef, who was trained at Michelin starred Winteringham Fields the service is well above average for a country pub. We are locally renowned for are homemade desserts made by Edith Hearn, the proprietor and chef. For 30 years her homemade ice creams, meringues and more have tantalized the taste buds of people all over the world!The restaurant & bar are stuck in the past, with their unique decor that is farming and game orientated, and some could argue the menu; with classics like prawn cocktail, whitebait, steak and kidney pie and fish and chips is also very traditional, but why should we change? After all its food like this that help build this country!We are wheelchair friendly being on one level, and due to be being able to seat 100 we can cater for large parties including weddings & funerals. Our large car park means parking is not a problem. We are very family orientated and we can adapt for any dietary needs, allergies or dislikes, just let us know!We look forward to seeing you,David, Edith & all the Team.

Was staying at Travelodge across the road so decided to try this place for our early evening meal. Wasn't sure at first about the restaurant but we got a lovely welcome from the staff. My husband and daughter had the "special" of steak and haggis pie and they loved it. I had the house burger and chips and it defeated... More

Absolutely awful and rude. Didn't even have the decency to let us know that they were closing at 21:30. Even though we had been relieved of £80+ for just our meal, without our drinks!.High prices for a disgusting meal. Get a cab go into Berwick for a more pleasant experience....Don't turn left carry on!!!

Despite just being flooded over the New Year, they were open. We went because they're the closest place to the Travelodge and had a good menu. It's a nice blend of pub grub with some fancier touches, with several veggie options too. There's also a set menu. The food was lovely and the portions were huge. I was looking forward... More

visited just after Christmas and despite being very quite really enjoyed both the food and the service - always have a very good meal here - has become one of our regular destinations. Always plenty of choice on the main menu and also the special board. Would always recommend here for a good meal.

28th Dec 2015; they were flooded on Christmas Day and worked tirelessly to re-open. Great food, lovely people, good value. Please do not be put off by exterior, really well worth a visit. Nice food & varied menu. 2 minute walk from Travelodge ( ignore Trip Advisor map ! )

We ate here recently as a family with my in law's. The staff were lovely and very welcoming however the restaurant itself is soooo outdated and really needs a good sprucing up! The wine list is quite limited however the food was extensive. The portions were very large which was great and I can't fault the food. Just the place... More

Called recently for a birthday dinner - had the lobster and crayfish cocktail to start with - different from the usual prawn cocktail - although the citrus mayo was a tad bland the fish was very good. Followed this with the turkey dinner with all the trimmings - very good, hot and tasty - without all the hassle of cooking... More

Upon arriving at The Meadow House with a friend of mine the place was empty and it was at this point it dawned on me, we had arrived right on closing time with no booking on a Wednesday night.

Had a lovely meal in The Meadow House. It was good value for money. Nice friendly staff. I had Chicken with cheese and leek sauce which was very good. My partner had slow roast beef which was also very good. Sticky toffee for sweet was lovely. Will be returning again very soon. Thanks a lot.
