We booked our wedding here last Summer and it was amazing from start to finish, checked in on Thursday evening with my bridesmaids stayed for a beautiful meal & drinks then off for a girly night, following morning the hotel staff could not look after us enough, they worked round the clock to make our reception room stunning and planned our ceremony room perfectly, the whole wedding was amazing and their care, support and kindness was beyond belief!!!! Myself and new husband stayed the evening of the wedding in the honeymoon suite and loved every second, the room is beautiful and the views are stunning to wake up to in the morning, this place is absolutely perfect for a small intimate wedding. Food was amazing and cooked to perfection, brilliant selection of fine wines, beers & spirits and the warmth from everyone second to none.
Special thanks to Avril, Andrea, Jessica, Andrew, Angela, Debra and all the staff who worked extremely hard to make everyone welcome and special, you are all amazing xx

Thanks to previous reviews decided on this spot for lunch while visiting Dunbar.
Had a delicious lunch, party of three all had different dishes and everyone very happy with their meal. Good idea to make Reservations as we were fortunate to be accomodated. Just down off Main street but happy to have found it.

After a stroll along the beach from the harbour and visiting the quaint shops in the High Street or John Muir’s birthplace, what could be better than a lovely hot special coffee and one of our yummy homemade cakes? We established our little business in Dunbar in December 2007 and very quickly realized our need to expand due to customer demand. We moved to No. 65 High Street soon after and opened on 4th July 2009. Our position in the center of Dunbar High Street on the “sunny side” of the street is ideal with ample on street parking spaces and easy walking distance from all of Dunbar’s attractions.
Our first visit & certainly won't be our last! With my sister & my two daughters & can't believe we haven't gone in before now. Lovely menu with great selection of food & drinks. Between us we had a selection inc porridge, nachos, bacon roll,...MoreThank you so much for your review, we are delighted you sampled a selection from our menu and you enjoyed your visit. We look forward to your return when hopefully you can sample a selection of our homebaking! Best regards, Martin and Lorraine

The Volunteer Arms sits quietly overlooking the harbour in Dunbar. The bar/restaurant serves food and drink all day, from traditional bar meals to our specials board which usually includes local seafood.
After strolling up from the harbour we dropped into the Volunteer Arms for a quick drink. This place is truly a traditional 'local'. The evening began to pick up, the beer was flowing and there was music and dancing in the bar. Our quick drink was no more...the locals and staff were so friendly and welcoming and the ale was great. Probably the best night out for a while...and it was on a sunday!! Definitely on my list of places to visit again!

Had lunch here because none of the other restaurants open at this time. Ordered the large all day breakfast. It was fine. But they forgot to bring the toast. Took it off the bill though when she realised she had forgotten. That aside service was nice from a very very busy waitress.

Gift shop and cafe in old smithy in the very pretty village of Tyninghame, a few minutes drive from East Linton.
Drove out through East Lothian last Thursday with my befriendee. Usual format is to go for a drive then stop somewhere for coffee and a cake. So we know the coffee shops in East Lothian very well. This was a lovely visit. We were shown through to the second room which has a stove. We both had the mandarin sponge, gluten free. It was fab. Coffee great too and staff friendly and efficient. I like that they don't have too many cakes on view. So the cakes they do have available are all fresh. I plan to return again soon.

Yes, murder polis as my granny used to say, went in Sat night 11/11/17, ordered my starter, chicken tikka with onion badgi waited half an hour, plate was greasy and tikka hard as a brick, it must have been reheated from the night before, shouted on the waiter, I said, "you can take this back?" he said "What's wrong?" I said "Well see if you can snap that tikka in half coz I can't", he couldn't either, he then said "Oh well we'll not charge you for that" I said "I wasn't going to pay for that anyway once I tasted it" waited another 30 minutes for my main chicken tikka with mushroom rice and peshwari nan, couldn't find any mushrooms in the rice except tiny wee bits, the cast iron skillet that the tikka was sizzling in was very very greasy, and I thought, if my granny was here she'd skelp him with that, never again

Arrived about 5.30pm to find only a few other customers. Got seated at a nice table by the window and relaxed into a good read of the big menu. Gammon steak was very tasty and small fish and chips good too. The staff were friendly...MoreThank you for your feedback. We appreciate our customers comments and hope to welcome you back again soon. Regards Andrew

Been a while since my last visit but the food remains as good as ever. Late in afternoon so quite quiet. The butternut squash soup had perhaps coconut milk ? in it. It was lovely anyway. I could easily have sat down with the pot lol. My husband had the all day breakfast which he also enjoyed. Staff friendly as always.

This cafe was a great find. It has lots of options for seats. There are comfortable armchairs to relax in, conventional tables and chairs, a sun Terrace with seats under glass and seats outside. We chose the comfortable armchairs in the window of the cafe. You order at the counter but food is then brought to you. Cakes and scones were excellent and coffee, tea and juices all top quality. Service was quick, efficient and pleasant. There is a good selection of children's books to keep the young ones entertained. Children were happy. Toilets were a bit below par but everything else was excellent. There is more here than a cafe - there is a garden centre etc but we only sampled the cafe.
