“Don't waste your time, try somewhere better”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Of all the lovely places in Jedburgh, why did we end up here? Very grumpy service without a smile. Food swimming in grease and overpriced as was clearly from freezer to fryer. Just don't bother

“Not bad”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Reasonable menu with good deals. Not brilliant produce. Tray bakes sit for a while in counter uncovered and taste off. When you leave here you smell of food. Not a great ventilation system.

“Shocking”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

Called in here for lunch and it was terrible. The service was appalling and the food inedible. We only ordered gammon steaks and they were grey in colour and ripe smelling, we did not eat them! They were served with a fried egg which was fine and some frozen chips and a handful of garden peas at 5.95 we felt robbed! There are better places to eat .

“Basic Scottish Breakfast”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Called here and had a basic Scottish breakfast.
Generous portions and cooked to order.
Quick service.
Quite tasty, but greasy and nothing special
Toilet cleanliness left a lot to be desired
