Dining eating out around Newcastleton

Eating in, or dining out there are lots of choices for lunches, bar meals or dining.

Yethouse has a fully equipped kitchen as well as a separate dining room.  If you are celebrating a special occasion and need inspiration we can help. We can suggest a romantic venue, or recommend a good  place for Sunday lunch or a cream tea!

We can sort catering if you want to put your feet up or pre order oven ready homemade suppers to just pop in the oven for a night off.  Our local chef Robin will be happy to prepare your menu for you, here are a few suggestions.

.....“What an enchanting spot for our reunion tour! When Vic told me about this place I looked on the website and then received our information pack, I was excited and intrigued about the prospect of spending a week at Yethouse. I can truly say that it exceeded all our expectations. The house is lovely and comfortable and we felt completely at home here. Sitting by the roaring fire and cooking in the well equipped kitchen was a delight. The local scenery is breathtaking as well. We have stayed in many B&B’s and cottages stateside and in Germany , this is the best one yet!”....
