“Ok place to chill”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Situated at the South end of Hawick High street, the Beanscene opened in Hawick about six years ago. The Beanscene also boasts the local small cinema within in, holding about 100 people. The menu is very limited, mainly pizza and tortilla and sandwiches. It is licensed but relies on bottled beer and wine. On occasions live music is played on a Thursday night. An attractive feature within is that it has a partial glass floor which looks down onto a disused water wheel. Tables are limited, but there is also leather loungers if you want to lay back and enjoy a drink. Good place to visit for coffee but a bit too restricted if you have a more adventurous appetitie.

“Points for convenience”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Bean Scene is very centrally located, sitting in the same building with the tourist info and shop. The food is perfectly fine for someone who's passing through on the way to somewhere else and wants a quick bite or a quick coffee. No complaints. PS I put Feb 2012 as the date visited, but it was actually December 2009.

“Try to get a seat in the alcove that overlooks the river.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

There are some bargain deals and the food is fine. There are plenty of other eating places in Hawick, some with better food, but the Beanscene is probably the most suitable for children. Look out for evenings when they have live music.

“Simple supper”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We stopped overnight at the "Hawich Aire" with our motorhome. There wasn't a lot going on in the evening except a film at the "Hub". The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming through in the restaurant area behind the tourist office. The cinema is along the corridor. We had a glass of Merlot with a very nice pizza. Then as it was still raining, we had another glass of Merlot!
