We stayed for a most pleasant three nights and, whenever we return to the Scottish Borders, shall make a beeline for the Cressfield, which is located at the southern end of the village. Nigel and his staff demonstrate the right blend of hospitality, efficiency and friendliness; the meals we had were delicious, the bedroom comfortable and quietly conducive to a... More

I go with my friend for a meal in the evening. The staff are lovely and the food is excellent. I recommend the ribeye steak they cook it exactly as you like it. Going in December for a Christmas meal and am looking forward to it.

As soon as you enter the building you feel the warm atmosphere surrounding you with the sound of happy customers coming from the lounge bar on your left and the... More

Had a lovely lunch, dad had chicken stuffed with applewood smoked cheddar, with smoked bacon in a mushroom sauce and fondant potatoes, which he polished... More

All fresh using local produce and cooked really well. Steak was really tasty, although would be nice to have the option of a Fillet too.... More
