Over the past few decades, we have been regular diners at the Meadow House, and must admit, it hasn't always been the best over the past few years. Having been several times over the past year, it has, without exception, been great on every visit. Good to see David and staff back on form - long may it last.

We revisited this pub for an early afternoon meal and found it still a good choice for a meal. A decent selection of meals priced around £10 (Main Course) were available which we found very filling and no necessity for a Starter or Pudding. The choice of real ales was limited to one but a decent selection of lagers and... More

We ordered 2 turkey dinners and mince and veg. Firstly the mash potato was hard and lumpy also the sausage was undercooked when we took the bacon off of it. We found a hair in the gravy on one of the dinners. Whilst eating the mince I bit into something hard which was very displeasing. The staff did not even... More

The last and first pub in England. Was staying at the travelodge 10 mins walk away, so wandered down to see if we could eat in the restaurant. The food was really nice and came quite quickly. The staff were also really nice as well if we are up that way again then we will definitely pop in.

A very friendly venue with a wide variety of food and a nice place to visit with children. There is an outdoor play area to help keep the little ones amused.

We had a lovely lunch at The Meadow House on Tuesday 14th Feb, St Valentine's Day. It wasn't very busy, due to it being midweek and out of season; I imagine at the weekends and during the peak holiday season it could get very busy. I had an excellent hot sea-food platter with chips and salad, my husband had a... More

This is a pleasant pub / restaurant close to a Morrisions Supermarket and Travelodge Hotel. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and decor. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Service is timely, not so fast as to make you think your table is required for someone else and not so long that you have been forgotten. Just right. The... More

Ate there for two nights early in January 2017. Had the homemade Angus burger one night, and the steak and kidney pie the second night. Both were excellent and would recommend . Adjoining pub was so quiet one night that it was closed about half past eight. The restaurant was busier but not overcrowded. All in all, it was quiet,... More

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.
