we continually struggle to find good places to eat in this area. Having found the Fetherston Arms, we will definitely be going back. The surroundings were pleasant enough, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was fantastic. Well done, please keep it up.

What a friendly pub. From the moment they fitted us in at a cosy table by the fire with our two dogs until the time we left the service was friendly and efficient.

Fantastic pub with friendly staff. Food was amazing, you must visit if you are in the area. Visited on New Year break. Very busy and seems to be well supported by the locals, would love to come back. Kirkoswald is a lovely place.

Great food and excellent service. Value for money with lovely atmosphere. Could have done with a few more Christmas decorations as it was quite sparse to say it was Christmas (only a tree next to the bar) otherwise a little very pub with plenty of folk each time we visited during the week.

This is an excellent pub, serving great beers and top quality pub food. The bar area can get a little busy as the bat/restaurant is quite small, but this is by no means a problem , it's proof that the fetherston is popular and enjoyed by many

Very good dinner, portions large so don't have lunch before you visit for dinner. Friendly service. Well worth a visit. Camembert in filo, Slow Cooked Lamb and Beer Battered Onion Rings. Busy so book a table.
