Had dinner here one evening in October. Food was enjoyable but menu was a bit limited. Staff very pleasant and food was presented in a nice way. Portions of average size which suited me but a hungry traveller might feel like Oliver Twist and ask for more.

Came along this place the other day and decided to pop in for some food and was really nice. I decided to go for the special on the board which was a beef roast, and was amazing!

Looking for somewhere to eat we were recommended the Carters Rest. It was clearly popular with the locals for lunch and our meal was indicative of why. The food was well cooked, the service very good and overall very friendly. If you are looking for somewhere for lunch in Jedburgh you won't go far far wrong at the Carters Rest.

Stopped by on a visit through the borders when with my mother. Very popular pub/restaurant, busy at lunchtime when we visited. Lovely lady said she would seat us but might have to await 10mins to take order but she would give us our drinks. Well worth the wait as, when we ordered the haddock, it was freshly sourced from Eyemouth... More

As there is not much open in Jedburgh, in the evening, this place is an oasis. Great service and lovely food. Staff are lovey, but be aware, it is busy and you may have to wait.
