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.

Good big portions of food. My son was very impressed with his burger and I had a very tasty lasagne. There was colouring in for the kids and play equipment outside. Average priced. 👍🏻

The food was excellent, thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only downside was there were 2 members of floor staff on with a full restaurant, so they were rushed off their feet and the service took a while. Not their fault though. Would highly recommend this place! Especially the beer battered fish and chips!

We visited in a large group and the menu offered a lot of choice. Across the group we selected a large cross section of the menu and no one was disappointed. I personally choice the slow roast pork belly from the specials board, it was huge!!! The best thing was for the cut of meat there was not too much... More

We were recommended The Meadow House by the Travelodge we stayed in 5 mins away. We turned up near the time they were about to finish serving food but they still were happy for us to eat. The food was superb and the service was too!! We will definitely visit again! Thank you
