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 booked in at short notice and were pleased to get a table for 5. The waiting staff were friendly and professional in their work. We enjoyed a superb meal with wine at a very reasonable price, and the meal was so good we returned the following night. We are returning to the area shortly and we will be booking... More

We popped in by off chance after seeing the sign on the A1 at the north end roundabout at Berwick Upon Tweed. The service was good but the treat was the variety of dishes and m Value. The service was polite, and reasonably quick, it was easy to see why this venue was popular with the local teen boys in... More

We had just arrived In Berwick upon Tweed after a 14.5 hour marathon journey from the Isle of Lewis. We were very tired and hungry so made a call to The Meadow House who were able to offer us a reservation within the hour. The visit was fine, nothing amazing but nothing wrong with it either. We were served by... More

went for a early evening meal today, staff where very friendly and could have not been more helpful. The food was poor - salad was browning and a nice layer of oil on my plate from the chips. the table we sat at would not accommodate all 4 chairs comfortably, toilets were dirty (why does no one clean behind radiators)....

We came because we wanted to say we ate in the first and last pub in England. It was one of the best meals we have had. Steak and ale pie, half a roast chicken and vegetable lasagne all went down without waste and these were generous platefuls. When it said "with potatoes" I did not expect both mash and... More

After many years absence we called for lunch when passing through. What a disappointment! The quality of the food was only just OK, but the whole atmosphere was tired. Flies buzzing around, a dead withered rose on the table and cloudy glasses did not endear us to the place, especially when we could remember the place 20 years ago. The... More

We have been many times to this restaurant when holidaying in the area and since moving up to Tweedmouth two years ago still continue to take friends and family to enjoy the good food and friendly atmosphere. Whenever you visit the food is always consistently good and the staff are always as friendly - even when busy. I always say... More

This is a pub by the side of the A1. Access is straight into the car park off a round about just north of Berwick on Tweed. They serve traditional pub food of very good quality and served in a very professional and friendly manner. It is about 8 mile south of the Scottish border and is the last pub... More
