We stayed in Eyemouth for 3 nights at a nearby B&B. After enjoying a fantastic meal the first night, we returned the next night. Great beer, reasonable house wine, very fresh food, and friendly service both in the downstairs bar and the restaurant itself.

We have been visiting Eyemouth for scuba diving, for several years now and this was our first visit to this establishment. I booked the tables in advance and the staff were very efficient and especially for such a large group. The waitresses were beautifully turned out, credit to you both. My seafood chowder was superb and the lamb shank was... More

We had evening dinner here last night. I loved my steak pie with boiled potatoes (could have had chips) and my husband's haddock was very fresh. The service was very good, and the portions were more than enough. It represented good value for money at £22, which included one pint of lager and a diet coke.

Our meal was very average, for the price I would have expected better, the veg was over cooked, firm veg has been the norm now for at least 15yrs.

Went upstairs to be turned away by a young guy in a flap as he was busy......to be told by a local to sit in the bar for our meal. Disorganised at the bar with orders and drinks orders, but dispite all the bother the meal was really nice. After all that I would go back.
