Had a meal here recently when visiting Berwick. Both my wife and I and our friends thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Very good food and also reasonably priced. Service good as well as was the ale.

We recently stayed for three nights in Eyemouth, and ate here every evening as we were so impressed. Great value for money, plenty of choice, and served in a cosy bar area. For example, I had the spinach & ricotta cannelloni the first night, next was the seafood platter and on our last night we both had the sirloin steak... More

Had a lovely evening in the Contented Sole. Good beer and was able to catch the football. Really good service and food. I had their homemade steak pie and can really recommend it.

The restaurant was closed, so we ate in the pub. Really enjoyed the 2 home made steak pies and they made our dog really welcome. It would have been a 5 rating had the cheesecake been defrosted correctly (shame and was knocked off the final bill), but my partner enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding. Would go again, but avoid the... More

When we visited the Contented Soul we took the dog, the proprietary put down a dish of water for the dog and made him really welcome so we then enjoyed a fine meal.

Found ourselves in Eyemouth on a bright and breezy winter's Sunday and called in to the Contented Sole for lunch. Restaurant is upstairs and resembled a tearoom with bar. A wee bit tired looking, but it's off-season and nothing a lick of paint won't fix. And it was spotlessly clean. Tasty steak pie served with proper chips ad fresh veg... More
