Considering the size of the town there is a number of amazing eateries and interesting dishes to try.

The Tweedside Hotel (Middle Pub)

I love this place. I have eaten here so many times I couldn’t even guess the number. I have probably tried almost everything on their menu that I know I’d enjoy. The owner Tina is a vegetarian too so you can get some badass vegetarian food here (try her veggie lasagne, yum!)

This place is also a hotel so if you are in the area grab a room. Its close to everything and has an amazing bar too which often has cool things happening like quizzes and live music. They also host a pretty intense burger challenge, and if you win you can get your meal for free!

The Corner House Hotel

This little hotel serves up a range of Chinese and British dishes, and they are the bomb! I absolutely love their range of Chinese dishes and can swear by the chicken bite starter with sweet chili sauce. This start is AMAZING. I love their sze chuan too, the spicier the better.

You can get a real nice selection of freshly made sandwiches, soups, baked potatoes and cakes. Everything is made in this little cafe and is really yummy. There is outdoor seating too if you are into that.
