Enjoyed a yummy pasta whilst overlooking the river Teviot. Warm and cosy and pleasant service. Parking only available across the river and opposite the Community Hospital. Busy area. Tables and chairs a bit basic but OK.

We popped in for Saturday lunch with kids and parents-in-law. Service was friendly and although it was counter service the waitress came over and took our order at the table. Food was all piping hot and good size portions. Great atmosphere and a lovely view...More
