We first ate here one evening in March 2013, before going on a tour of Newbattle Abbey College. We're not normally keen on pub environments because we're not big drinkers and don't care for much noise. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The place is divided in a way that those who want a quieter time can sit fairly separately... More

I booked at table for 18 people on 21st of September, very disappointed, hair in food, food cold, people getting their meals at different times then getting told what someone ordered is off the menu whilst serving people their meal. Would not recommend.

Try the fish and chips, they were recommended fish is lovely nicest I have tasted. Salad is great too. I could go on, they have a large choice of two meals for £10.00 . Staff are very nice and the surroundings are nice good parking. They also have a play area for children, with some toys.
