My place of choice for a meal or a beer in Eyemouth but what on earth went wrong? Food horrible, cold and 1 1/2 hrs from sitting down to being served. The service upstairs was non existent and if you wanted a drink it was easier to get up and go to the bar downstairs than try and get served... More

Had read reviews before our trip to Eyemouth and it lived up to the great recommendations. Barman/waiter with his back to front baseball cap was friendly and super efficient. Food was great and atmosphere relaxed. Spot on!

I went in at the weekend for a bite to eat and then some drinks. The atmosphere was great and the staff couldn't have been nicer. I was very impressed with the quickness of my food as I had a well done steak which was cooked to perfection. The staff were upbeat, quick and efficient for the busyness of the... More

We visited early in June this year with our two small dogs. We ordered the Lighter Bites Scampi which was lovely. The batter was very light and tasty. The young man behind the bar brought the dogs a bowl of water and couldn't have been more helpful. We visited last year and will definitely visit again next year.

We visited back in February and so everything was quiet in the town. We were given a warm welcome by staff and locals, they even offered our dog a bowl of water. The food and beer were very good and the atmosphere was great for a Thursday lunchtime.

Would not eat there again food was not that good felt like it was too busy for the staff to handle. Also felt the sauce that was asked for to go with steak was nothing like the one I ordered. The meals used to be amazing.

Ate here on Friday 5/6 and was looking forward to the sea food combo - what a let down. A small pot of defrosted prawns, a tiny piece of dry poached salmon and a mass of indescribable batter containing who knows what - but it was pretty horrible. Get it off the menu. The pub itself is fine, very busy... More
