Lovely little pub right in the Scottish /English border .. There is a good and varied menu with some specials .. It's not fancy but it is nicely cooked and there is plenty of it .. And it was home made .. Prices are good very affordable .. The serving staff were lovely and it was well worth a visit

Service was good, food arrived quickly. Good start we thought. But unfortunately chicken was so tough it was hard to cut through, seemed like it had been kept warm for long time, chips nothing to write home about. Sunday lunch was nice, but again roast potatoes were so hard they were impossible to eat. On plus side, puddings were Devine..

Was looking for somewhere to have our anniversary meal while staying in the Scottish Borders and saw the meadow house was local so we booked a meal . We stated that we had a disabled member of our party and they said that was no problem, when we arrived we were a little bit early but it was no problem... More

We went here because of the reviews but didn't really think they were quite justified. Food was of average quality. The place had a feel of a roadside restaurant which I suppose it is, not a cosy feeling.

Stopped off here during some exploring in the town. Very friendly and lovely staff. Just had a snack but was delicious! Goats cheese and parma ham parcels. The pub was dog friendly which we love!! Menu looked excellent too with lots of choice. Would love to go back next year for an evening.

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.
