The Steading, Hillend

Lovely country pub near the foot of the road to the Midlothian ski centre. Dog friendly in the bar area. Large garden out the back with outdoor tables – sunny spot in the middle of the afternoon, although with a fair amount of traffic noise.

The Old Smithy, St Abbs

Handy little dog-friendly café about half a mile up the road from the village. This is the spot to stop with your pooch if it is cold or wet since the popular Ebbcars café by the harbour is not dog friendly inside.
