Stopped in for lunch to split a long car journey. Ended up with a three course delight. Stornoway black pudding starter. Nachos as main and profiteroles for pud. Food delic, tasty, colourful and good portion as well as price. Staff very friendly. Can't fault them. Thanks and regards you on our next trip in May.

Thank Glenda J

recommended to visit for an evening meal by one of the local bar owners. A place he says he's never had a bad meal! We enjoyed fresh Eyemouth smoked Haddock while the youngsters went for burgers. All meals very ample, very well cooked and decent price. Service very pleasant. Recommended

We we’re walking around Dunbar taking a few pictures. Popped in for a drink which was fine. Came back a hour later and the pub atmosphere had changed.

Little area on the left had turned in to a noisy crèche where apparently kids were chucking food at each other. Bar staff and kids guardians doing nothing. Another couple sharing a noisy mobile phone.

Shame. Nice pub but not the atmosphere we are after. Had one drink and left.

Small restaurant upstairs for the bar, nice and cosy pub.
Typical bar food menu we just had a burger and beer which was fine and reasonably priced.
Best to book as we got the last table which was a cancellation on the night.
