Contented dog welcome too

On a chilly evening in Eyemouth it was a great relief to find a pub where dogs were welcome in the bar area. The food was good plain pub fare. Basics rather than fancy stuff.

Sadly on the Tuesday we visited they had only 1 serving of several dished including the crab salad I ordered. I did not expect it to come with chips as I'd also ordered a roll and butter. The crab came in a crab shell but sadly too much brown meat as opposed to a mixture of brown and whit4e

Completely empty as we walked in which is always unnerving but gradually a few more people came. The waitresses were very friendly and nice. I asked what fruit juices they had and was... More

We eat here twice during our visit to Eyemouth - as a group of 9 it can be a challenge to get all our meals together but on both nights the waitress worked hard and looked after us very well. Good was tasty and great value.

No apology or anything.... More

Popped in for a quick lunch with colleagues and what a delight. Quaint pub and the Haddock is to die for. Excellent service with nice friendly staff.
