Popped in for a bite to eat and it proved to be a great spot. Staff were quick and professional. Food was lovely while latte was lush. A handy spot as parking is free next to it.

Lovely food. Happy helpful staff. We returned the following night, a Saturday, and they were able to fit us in. Had some good laughs with the staff.

My wife and I met a couple on holiday in Mauritius in November, where we were married. We got on very well, unfortunately, they went home before our wedding at the hotel.

My husband and I stopped at this nice pub in Jedburgh in May 2015, on our way home (England) from Edinburgh. The staff is lovely, the lunch snacks were delicious, filling and reasonably priced. Best of all was the home made shortbread we bought as snacks for our trip back. Absolutely worth a stop for a rest, whilst on the... More

Friendly staff, good food and a clean pub. Prices were reasonable, my husband had 'Lamb served on Haggis mash' the meat was so tender it fell off the bone, glad we decided to go there.
