Lesley and Lawson opened up the restaurant for our small wedding party last year consisting of just us and the children, it was fantastic and the kids still talk about the Eton Mess!!!
For our 1st anniversary we went back, minus the kids(much to their horror) and had another fabulous experience. The atmosphere, food quality and home style comforts make this an experience to savour and I would thoroughly recommend a visit for a special occasion!
Thanks again Lesley and Lawson

It was great to see Audrey & Barry again - we were very flattered that they chose Churches Seafood Restaurant to celebrate their first anniversary with us. They really enjoyed their fresh local fish & seafood & we look forward to seeing them again next year!

Every dish came to the table with flare! The owner has a very special touch in his/her presentation. Every family member had a different choice of dish and non were dissappointed.

There is nothing to dislike. Just visit and experience for yourself.Lesley and Lawson are the epitome of perfect hosts and nothing seems to be any trouble to them in any respect. Managed to have a tour of the hotel and all the rooms are of a superior quality.

As for the food? Well what can we say. As a previous reviewer stated, Rick Stein watch out!!!

We are very puzzled, extremely hurt and at a total loss over this review. As a favour to one of our local B&B's, we fitted these Vegan and Vegetarian guests in on a very busy service and specifically prepared for them, a previously agreed menu of hand-made crepes, filled with sautéed vegetables and home-made fries to go with them.

When we next spoke to the B & B hosts, they said that the guests were extremely complimentary on all aspects of the food and we can only conclude that they may have been confused whilst writing this review

At no point during the meal, when we checked with these guests that all was okay, did they indicate that there was a problem of any kind, in fact, the impression given by these diners to us was complete satisfaction and they backed up their praise by leaving a generous tip.

As a note, two of our hotel guests, one of whom is also a Vegetarian, had the same meal, on the same night and they gave us a five star review on another review site.

We specialise in local fish, lobster, crab, and Eyemouth's biggest export, Langoustine, all cooked in house and prepared lovingly, with care, for meat, vegetarian and seafood lovers alike.

We took our friends to Churches to celebrate their wedding anniversary. We wanted the evening to be special and it certainly was. Couldn't fault a thing. The food was superb. Three of us had halibut and Heather had the cod and chips. The best fish we have ever tasted. Beautifully cooked and presented. Lesley and Lawson make you most welcome and the whole evening was just fabulous!
Would love to try more of Lesley's cooking but living in the West Midlands makes it just a bit too far to travel!
