Nipped in for a drink whilst in the area and found the staff and locals very friendly. The waitress even set up a table for us outside as it was a lovely day. Cheap drinks but must admit not a keen lover of Belhaven beer.

The hotel is tucked away a little and worth finding. It has good wholesome food at a reasonable price and the staff were friendly and helpful. I had the steak and it was very good. We only went there for the meal and I recommend it to those in the area.

Visited twice, food was good, on the first occasion it was very enjoyable, on second occasion the staff were unwelcoming and made us feel uncomfortable, other customers were swearing and made it very difficult for us with a younger family.

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.
