Hethpool House Dining
About our food
We use all local produce as far as possible. We have excellent local lamb and rare breed pigs which ensure the sausages and home cured bacon are an especial flavour. We have Tweed salmon and game which is all found within a short distance of Hethpool at the appropriate time of year.
Our vegetable garden is very productive and we have a good supply of home grown fruit all of which is produced organically. Our next door neighbour supplies chickens and eggs which are all free range.
We can cater for most tastes and if there is something in particular you like we will do our best if you can let us know in advance.
Breakfasts can be traditional English and we can do kippers or kedgeree as well as fresh orange juice, home made bread and our speciality 'Rodgrod' and of course porridge.

We opted to eat at the house, and Eildon's daughter Di cooked for us. Amazing asparagus soup, chicken basque and homegrown rhubarb crumble. All delicious and much more relaxed than going out for dinner. Breakfast was equally good.

We were greeted by a roaring log fire in the sitting room and a fabulous home made two course dinner (chicken basque and homegrown rhubarb crumble). The house is gorgeous and rooms very generously sized. Some really nice touches such as real china cups and saucers and a 'proper' kettle in our room and a great selection of teas.
All the foods sourced locally or grown in Hethpool garden. Brilliant. We drank wine that we were encouraged to bring with us.
