Called in for a refreshing drink after visiting the local village. Sat outside and as weather was stunning it was great. Dog friendly if weather poor.

On holiday in Eyemouth we always pop in for lunch to the Contented Sole. The staff are warm and welcoming not just to people but also their furry companions. Food is great and large portions as well as children's menu. Prices reasonable.

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
