The menu is varied with something for everyone. Children are well catered for too. Good food, cooked well and with attentive and helpful staff. We visited twice in one week and had a very good meal both times. Puddings were also very good! Nice to find places that have a good menu, great service and still manage to have a... More

Am enjoyable visit with friends where we enjoyed the great beef. It's always a pleasure to enjoy quality meat. It's made our Sunday - indeed our, whole week! Other amazing food to enjoy. Some lovely fish and the mince looked delish! All worthy of a taste. Some gorgeous lush puddings on offer. Lashing of cream and really mouth watering. Smiling... More

We have been to the Meadow house several times the past few years when up in Northumberland.The service and staff cannot be faulted,on this occasion we both had the homemade soup followed by roast beef with all the trimmings. It was perfect,and very filling.We will continue to visit every time we are up there.

Lovely food, very good value. But don't arrive too late, as the kitchen seems to close quite early. We were lucky. They kept the kitchen open for our group of six, for which we were very grateful. A fantastic friendly service. The food was outstanding.

We visited here thinking it would be something a bit different judging by the website. It is nice and clean and would suit you if you visited with children (nice play area). The waiter that took our order was friendly but the waitress that brought our food looked miserable as sin, the food was probably the biggest let down though,... More

My partner and I visited the Meadow House whilst on holiday near Berwick last month. We hadn't booked a table so we're prepared to be tuned away but as soon as we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome. The staff were all friendly towards us and the food was excellent. I would certainly recommend The Meadow House if... More

Visited here as a family of four while staying in Berwick upon Tweed. When arriving around 6pm, we asked for a table of four and were told they couldn't seat us until about 7pm as they were fully booked tonight. No problem, we asked if we could have a drink until then. The barmaid then said she would go and... More

The Meadow House is an unusual pub by today's standards. No chrome, tv's, leather, little lights in the floor or pictures that look like someone threw the paint at the canvas blindfolded!To sum it up, we are a family run, unpretentious rural country pub, that aims to provide great quality home cooked food and service at a fair price; that's it!Since the early days of the A1 highway we have regularly been known as 'The First and Last Pub in England' as the Scottish Border is only a mile away.Our main emphasis is our food. Over the last 30 years we have built up a great reputation for serving only the finest quality fresh local produce from all around the borders, and lots of it!We are lucky to have great team of staff that are as interested in the business as we are. Our enthusiastic head chef Adam Bettison is relentless in his quest for ever improving our food. With help from David Hearn, the owner and chef, who was trained at Michelin starred Winteringham Fields the service is well above average for a country pub. We are locally renowned for are homemade desserts made by Edith Hearn, the proprietor and chef. For 30 years her homemade ice creams, meringues and more have tantalized the taste buds of people all over the world!The restaurant & bar are stuck in the past, with their unique decor that is farming and game orientated, and some could argue the menu; with classics like prawn cocktail, whitebait, steak and kidney pie and fish and chips is also very traditional, but why should we change? After all its food like this that help build this country!We are wheelchair friendly being on one level, and due to be being able to seat 100 we can cater for large parties including weddings & funerals. Our large car park means parking is not a problem. We are very family orientated and we can adapt for any dietary needs, allergies or dislikes, just let us know!We look forward to seeing you,David, Edith & all the Team.
