Description: The Meadow House is an unusual pub by today's standards. No chrome, tv's, leather, little lights in the floor or pictures that look like someone threw the paint at the canvas blindfolded!To sum it up, we are a family run, unpretentious rural country pub, that aims to provide great quality home cooked food and service at a fair price; that's it!Since the early days of the A1 highway we have regularly been known as 'The First and Last Pub in England' as the Scottish Border is only a mile away.Our main emphasis is our food. Over the last 30 years we have built up a great reputation for serving only the finest quality fresh local produce from all around the borders, and lots of it!We are lucky to have great team of staff that are as interested in the business as we are. Our enthusiastic head chef Adam Bettison is relentless in his quest for ever improving our food. With help from David Hearn, the owner and chef, who was trained at Michelin starred Winteringham Fields the service is well above average for a country pub. We are locally renowned for are homemade desserts made by Edith Hearn, the proprietor and chef. For 30 years her homemade ice creams, meringues and more have tantalized the taste buds of people all over the world!The restaurant & bar are stuck in the past, with their unique decor that is farming and game orientated, and some could argue the menu; with classics like prawn cocktail, whitebait, steak and kidney pie and fish and chips is also very traditional, but why should we change? After all its food like this that help build this country!We are wheelchair friendly being on one level, and due to be being able to seat 100 we can cater for large parties including weddings & funerals. Our large car park means parking is not a problem. We are very family orientated and we can adapt for any dietary needs, allergies or dislikes, just let us know!We look forward to seeing you,David, Edith & all the Team.

“continues to be great value for money and good food !”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We have been many times to this restaurant when holidaying in the area and since moving up to Tweedmouth two years ago still continue to take friends and family to enjoy the good food and friendly atmosphere. Whenever you visit the food is always consistently good and the staff are always as friendly - even when busy. I always say - wont have a starter - but cant resist them ! the main meals are plentiful and unfortunately don't always leave room for their delicious puds !! If ever you are passing thru the area and want a good meal or indeed are in the area on holiday - then don't hesitate to try this great restaurant - you wont be disappointed !!

“The last INN out and The First INN in”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a pub by the side of the A1. Access is straight into the car park off a round about just north of Berwick on Tweed. They serve traditional pub food of very good quality and served in a very professional and friendly manner. It is about 8 mile south of the Scottish border and is the last pub in England or the first depending on the way you are going.
