“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

A traditional pub restaurant, excellent fish and chips from nearby Eyemouth, cooked well. The service was very good, attentive but not too much. A good place to eat.

“Really good fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Eyemouth haddock, perfectly cooked in batter, chips and veg - the fish was perfect, not over cooked, and the batter crisp and hot.

Portions are generous.

Nice authentic pub with good food, worth a visit

“Good food and good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

If you are interested in eating good pub food in a historic atmosphere, this is the place to choose in Coldstream. The Besom has various memorabilia of the famous Coldstream Guards and has an authentic atmosphere of past times. The menu is wide ranging and the food is of good quality, adequate portions, and is reasonably priced. The inn also serves coffees and teas.The Besom is opposite the lovely gardens in town from which one has spectacular views over the river and distant hills.
