Well I had a burger and fresh orange and lemonade. Regularly meet for 1 hour for business. More like pleasure but the location is prefect with so many roads leading to this venue

Been here a few times dinning area nice. Could be a little warmer. Good set menu as well as lots too choose from. Recommend belly pork and the £10 bottle of proseco goes down a treat. Bar service could be quicker. All in all very good.

Popped in after a day out . Not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Very busy because it's popular. Meal was plentiful and enjoyable.

What makes good pub food. In my opinion simple straight forward uncomplicated food which is well cooked. This pub has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Unfortunately on the good front they have already moved away from cooking on the premises to cooking pre-cooked ingredients instead. The quality is acceptable re the charge but could be much better.

The Justinlees (or "The Just" as it is locally referred to) is a recently refurbished pub just outside Dalkeith town. The pub has plenty of onsite parking. Visiting for a family lunch, I was very impressed with the wide selection on offer. Whilst on paper, may of the dishes are typical "pub food" the quality and presentation of the food... More

Popped in for a quick lunch with two colleagues on a quiet Tuesday. Easy parking. Service was quick, food was excellent, good value and inexpensive. Server was efficient and friendly. Ideal for a business lunch.
