The white swan in Duns Square is a local pub serving bar grub which left us pleasantly surprised. Good value for money and my mother in law was happy with the pensioners lunch (Thursday) and she is not easy to please. Decor is a bit drab but it's ok. Staff were really nice and welcoming and took time to explain... More

Great staff, large room , but desperately needing a refurb. The hallway up to our room felt as if the floor was going to collapse. But food and service good. Bar lively and bar meal good value for money.

My girlfriend and I have visited a couple of times for a few drinks and some lunch and have not been disappointed on any occasion. The décor could do with an update, but this is more than made up for by the very friendly staff, decent beer and good food. We will almost certainly visit again.

We struggled to park the car in Duns but when we did, we were close to the White Swan. As luck would have it Thursday is pensioners day and we had a two course lunch for £5. This was lentil soup followed by steak pie which was really good value. The staff were very friendly.

We enjoyed our visit to the White Swan. The pub food was excellent. The waitress was friendly, helpful (and beautiful). Between The 4 of us we ordered fish and chips, lamb, and beef stew. We recommend them all.

What an awful place!!! The smell of fat and grease kept me awake all night and the thin flimsy mattress was so uncomfortable. I didn't have particularly high expectations on seeing the pub initially but I would feel ashamed to show any guest into the hovel of a bedroom. Left very early after only a few hours sleep. The woman... More

The room was dirty and utterly wreaked of chip fat..... So do we now! Read the previous reviews for in depth doom... Wish I had!!! I'm off to get de louse'd

We stopped for a meal at this pub. The interior was very drab. The seats were very dirty. The toilets had not been cleaned in a week. We promptly left our drinks and moved on even though we were very hungry. So we can't comment on the food but the if it was as good as the cleanliness, we would... More
