About the Pub

A 200 year old Inn perched on the Ale Water (yes really!). Parts have been upgraded but the front bar (beware the sliding door!), with a real fire, remains virtually untouched since 1906 retaining pine panelling throughout. There is also a comfy drinking/dining area with additional snug at the front. Owned by Born in the Borders Brewery, food features strongly with local produce that is sometimes foraged with a 'Plough to Platter' ethos matching the Brewery’s 'Plough to Pint' philosophy.
