I checked in and settled down in the lounge area to do some work - I was surprised to be presented with a delicious slice of homemade cake and coffee, what a treat! The owners are a lovely couple who are doing a fantastic job of renovating this... More

Decided to have a wee weekend away from home & decided to book The Horse & Hound having read the reviews. We were not disappointed. We had lovely meals, they are obviously used to catering for Borders folk as the portion sizes were huge. It was good wholesome home cooked food. The Inn is going through a refit which was... More

Ensuite shower room was fine, except that there wasn't a lot of power in the shower, may be a water pressure issue though. The restaurant food was good, although they stop serving at 8pm. 2 veggie options which didn't change and were both pasta;... More
