Places to eat in Eyemouth
Eyemouth is a pretty seaside resort with plenty of choices where food’s concerned. As you’d expect from a working harbour town, there are plenty of eateries providing fresh seafood! If you fancy something different though, there are a variety of cuisines and atmospheres to pick from.
Eyemouth’s around 30 minutes drive from our Berwick and Haggerston Castle holiday parks, so you won’t have far to travel to sample the mouthwatering fare! Here are just some of the places to eat in Eyemouth (including dog-friendly restaurants).
Cuisine: fish specialist
This hut on the harbour blends in the background - until you read the tempting menu.
Joe’s Catch is a local seafood eatery offering up fresh catches in delicious combos. Think crab with lemon mayo on top of freshly cooked fries, flatbread with chilli king prawns, and seafood boxes filled to the brim with succulent langoustines.
If that’s got tummies rumbling, you’ll be pleased to know the hut is open on weekends through most weathers to satisfy your tastebuds!
The Contented Sole Restaurant and Bar
Cuisine: pub grub
Another treat on the harbour is the Contented Sole, a dog-friendly restaurant in Eyemouth serving up a mix of freshly caught fish dishes and classic pub grub.
There’s space to relax outside with a cold drink on a hot day, or cosy seating inside when the weather turns. Pop in for a lighter bite like toasties or wraps or indulge in a three-course meal of steak, fishcakes, or curry (leaving room for dessert, of course)!
There are plenty of vegan and gluten-free options too, so everyone’s satisfied.
Fancy a tipple? Treat yourself to a range of local beers and gins. The bar has a friendly vibe where you’ll find locals who love to chat.
The Ship Restaurant and Bar
Cuisine: British classics
If you’re after classic dishes with a twist, you must book a table at The Ship — one of the most popular restaurants in Eyemouth.
Their contemporary menu offers unique versions of pub favourites such as mac and cheese with pulled pork and Cajun fries, Aberdeen Angus burgers filled with cherry tomatoes and rocket, or ‘yesterday’s soup of the day’ (because it’s better the day after).
For little appetites, there’s a kid’s menu with dishes such as pizza or fish goujons in smaller portions. Grown-ups can enjoy a variety of beers, wines, and spirits to pair with your meal.
It’s strongly recommended that you book your table to avoid disappointment! Dogs are allowed in the bar area and the outside tables, so bring them along. You’ll find the restaurant along Harbour Road.
Cuisine: Italian-inspired fish and chips
This traditional restaurant has been going for over 100 years. The multi-award-winning menu is a must-try if you’re visiting Eyemouth.
Famous for their fish and chips fried in beef dripping, it’s the same way they’ve always done it. If you don’t fancy something fried, why not try a traditional Italian pizza fired in their own stone ovens? You can sit in their bright, modern restaurant area and chill as you enjoy your meal — or take it away to tuck into on the beach nearby.
On a hot day, sample the traditional Gelato, made using locally sourced milk, cream, and fruit purees. It’s like a little slice of the Almalfi coast in Scotland! You’ll find Giacopazzi’s in the cheerful building along Harbour Road.
Cuisine: contemporary British
A stylish, contemporary bar and bistro with food and drink available from breakfast until late. They serve up award-winning, seasonal produce in mouthwatering dishes such as their Scottish borders breakfast, focaccia with fresh toppings, and seafood platter.
There’s a choice of indoor and outdoor seating on the first floor of the building so you can overlook the harbour as you enjoy your meal.
Rialto Coffee Co.
Cuisine: coffee and cake
In Eyemouth's centre, you’ll find Rialto, a quaint, cosy cafe serving traditional cakes, sandwiches, and hot drinks, made with love. There’s even a real fire to cosy up to in the chilly Scottish weather!
Vegans and coeliacs rejoice — there are plenty of gluten-free and vegan options to choose from, whether you fancy sweet or savoury (or a bit of both). The husband and wife team work hard to welcome everyone and help you feel at home during your visit.
After your walk around Eyemouth, stop in anytime for a bite to eat and to rest your feet.
Mackays of Eyemouth
Cuisine: fish and chips
In a seaside town, it’d be a shame not to try some traditional fish and chips! Mackays fry up local cod, haddock, chips, and traditional chippy sides all week on the Eyemouth seafront.
You can sit inside or take your food out into the sun to enjoy with your furry friend. There are generous portions and even locally made ice cream in dozens of flavours if you fancy something sweet!
Just next to the iconic Willie Spears statue in Eyemouth, you’ll see this modest-looking Indian restaurant. Once you go inside, you’ll be warmly greeted by the friendly staff and a cosy dining area on the first floor.
Indian Brasserie promises a ‘total dining experience’ with its menu. Choose from classic Indian dishes from a mild Pasanda to a volcanic Chilli Chingri Masala. Complete your meal with traditional sides including naan breads, chapatis, and poppadoms, all homemade.
It’s best to book a table to avoid disappointment during busy times!
Lough’s Home Bakery
A traditional bakery that’s been going strong since the 1940s, Lough’s Home Bakery is ideal if you want to stop in to grab something hearty to eat on a walk or as part of your packed lunch.
Although there’s no seating inside, the homemade rustic loaves, cakes, and pies are well worth a go. There’s a reason this bakery has won awards! You’ll be greeted by friendly staff who can help you select something to eat out of their wide range of goods. There are a range of gluten-free options too.
The Heathers Restaurant
A meal with a view! This restaurant is located off the beaten path in Eyemouth's countryside with a spectacular view of the sea.
They specialise in locally-caught seafood dishes, such as lemon sole, breaded langoustines, and even traditional Cullen Skink. You can find meat and poultry dishes on the menu too, and roast dinners on a Sunday. There’s plenty of dedicated parking and it’s fully wheelchair accessible.
If you’re bringing your dog, there’s a special area of the restaurant where you can dine in comfort together.
