Myself, my husband and my mum stayed here on 17th September 2016. The room was clean and airy with a well stocked tea tray. Breakfast was excellent, a big plateful and we could have had more tea and toast. Elaine and Stan were very welcoming and I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Canonbie and the surrounding area

Called in for our tea, we had been to see a friend in the area. I had an omelette and my husband meat pie then I had the sticky toffee pudding. It was very nice. Very friendly staff, good food and nice atmosphere.

The main issue in this 'debatable land' was knowing whether we were in England or Scotland! The border weaves hither and thither. In fact the pub and village are in Scot! Lovely friendly and welcoming locals' pub. Very reasonable and generous eve meal: 3-meat roast (ham, chick, beef) & trimmings. Good beer/ Belhaven. £21 for 2 x mains and drinks....reasonable....
