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.

We visit the Medow House whenever we stay in Berwick as you can always guarantee a good, reasonably priced meal and attentive, but not overbearing, service. Wide range of meals plus daily specials and also 'smaller portions' for people like me who don't have a large appetite! Will be back!!

We regularly visit The Meadow House and always enjoy our meals. There is a wide choice on the menu as well as a good selection of starters, mains and deserts on the Specials board. The staff are also very friendly.

Have been before as I used to live in Berwick but recently called in en route to North Yorkshire. We did not want a huge meal and there was plenty of choice to select a small savoury option. We were showed to a table quickly by a friendly member of staff, menus brought, specials explained and order taken quickly. Our... More

My wife and I came across the Meadow House by chance on our way back south from Edinburgh. We dined well and couldn't fault the food or the service. Such a shame that we live so far away.

We went with all the family to celebrate a birthday, when we got there we were greeted by a young lady who just looked at the table we were going to sit on and said 'That's your table'. It took ages to order drinks and have them served, then one person in our party was left waiting for a meal... More

We found Meadow House by chance whilst we were visiting my wedding venue nearby in Duns and we were so pleased we did find it as the food was amazing - top restaurant quality! Staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was fantastic. I will be recommending our wedding guests pay a visit when staying in the area... More
