Yet again we (and our 2 dogs) were made to feel very welcome here. Always go to the Contented Sole when we stay in Eyemouth. Bar food of a very good standard. Sorry we missed the owners this time!

I had a decent Roast beef dinner here with a glass of cordial. The pub is pleasant and there is a view of the harbour so I would recommend this as good place for lunch.

I ordered the roast chicken dinner and unfortunately it wasn’t very good. Veg was over done and chicken was dry. The prawn cocktail to start was good but nothing special.

Dogs are welcome in the bar but not in the restaurant. Booking is recommended in the summer season as we do get very busy. Bar tables are limited so if you have a dog I would recommend booking to avoid disappointment
