Description: 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.

This is the second time we have used this restaurant as a midway point on a drive up to Edinburgh. The first time it was a bit later in the evening so was very busy, this time it was only about 5.30 so was nice and quiet (but was filling up when we left). Food was excellent and good quality....

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years and they never fail us. Menu choices are very good with interesting changes on the specials boards. Food is always hot, tasty and very good portion sizes. The staff, even though busy, are always friendly and helpful. Would recommend anyone passing through the area.

We pre booked a table here for our sons 16th birthday on 22 december as we were staying in Chirnside for the Xmas holidays. I have to say given the reviews on here I was expecting something amazing. There was absolutely no atmosphere in there, we were the only ones in there, the food was underwhelming - nothing to shout... More

Called in for lunch on our way up to Edinburgh. We both had Panini's, very little filling & the salad came in a tiny ramekin type bowl & it could just have been our imagination but the chips we were served seemed a lot smaller than those served to diners having main meals.

Good food at reasonable prices in decent surroundings. We always break our 400 mile journey here, but at Christmas they work hard to make sure it's enjoyable. We find it advisable to book beforehand, or it could be a long wait, but we've never had a big problem. And it was extremely busy this year. But the service was excellent,... More
