Set in the centre of the peaceful village of Allanton, The Allanton Inn is a charming coaching inn dating from the 18th century offering great B&B, delicious food and a friendly atmosphere.
The inn offers informal dining in a modern, rural environment. This is provided by wooden floors, wooden tables and chairs, brightly coloured soft furnishings, local and contemporary artwork, fresh cut flowers, subtle lighting and an open log fire in the winter months. There is an enclosed private beer garden with stunning open views over the Borders countryside.
Second only to the skill and originality of the kitchen team is the sourcing of local Borders’ produce. The Borders is rich in a wide variety of produce from local land and waters and they are proud of the quality of the produce and the skills in the kitchen providing the basis for interesting menus, offering that something a little bit different.
The delicious, seasonal food they serve can be complemented with the selection of fine wines, real ales and other drinks for your enjoyment from the well stocked bar. The wines have been selected individually for a wine list and they stock around 30 different gins. They enjoy coffee at the Allanton Inn and the machine is always on serving a variety of hot drinks with home-made biscotti throughout the day.
The bedrooms feature plump cushions, original artwork, Egyptian cotton bedding, fluffy white towels and Scottish produced toiletries. All the rooms are en-suite rooms with newly fitted showers. They are equipped with a flat-screen television with built in radio alarm clock, hairdryer, coffee and tea making facilities with Scottish biscuits and a local history and information folder. The Allanton Inn breakfast is a perfect way to start your day. There is always fresh fruit, yoghurts, local honey, local cheeses, home-made jams and marmalade, full cooked breakfasts using locally produced bacon & sausages, local fresh eggs, as well as salmon and Eyemouth kippers.
