The menu is mostly creative types of burgers. I don't particularly like burgers, so I ordered nachos and buffalo wings. Both were good but the nachos had an odd sweet chili sauce rather than salsa, and no sour cream or guacamole was available. No buffalo dipping sauce either. Friendly service. I would probably skip unless you really like burgers, but... More

We stopped in for dinner and felt very unwelcome. We were told to sit anywhere. After we were comfortably settled into a table another staff member rudely told us that we needed to move to a smaller table. We sat at the new table (between the kitchen door and the hallway archway - not a comfortable place) for fifteen minutes... More

Lots of choice of burger - all well presented and good size. Coped with our large group OK although only one person cooking and one serving. Everyone enjoyed their own choice. Main eating area is by the upstairs bar but drinks had to be purchased downstairs.

Not a huge number of places to choose from in Jedburgh but this place was fine. The decor is a bit 70s. The lanlord was very friendly and the sevice was swift and efficient. Beer was good. We had the steak and chips for 2 with a bottle of red which was good value for money. The pool table downstairs... More

15 of us visited this little gem on Saturday. We didn't book but we're in no hurry. The menu was brilliant and I've never deliberated for so long. The children's food was served first and they all enjoyed what they had. Then ours was served all together and I have to say the best burger, home made coleslaw and chips... More

I had read the reviews and seen the Tripadvisor certificate in the window, but the reality didn't match expectations as it was much better than that. 32 kind of burgers, including vegetarians, superb and homemade chips (better than Heston's) and generous helpings together with a very welcoming host and atmosphere. We went twice in one week and the second time... More
