The Rose & Thistle Inn is a historic former coaching inn, located at the intersection of several ancient Drovers roads linking England to Scotland. Today it is run by Gareth and Jane Latcham, who have expanded and developed the business to include Bed & Breakfast and self-catering holiday accommodation in this beautiful part of the world.

As a traditional country Inn at the heart of the local community they offer a wide range of drinks, cask ales and good food, using locally sourced ingredients - booking is advisable at the weekend and during the many local events. Seating is available in the bar or in the large function room, with panoramic views out over the surrounding countryside.

For additional entertainment there are two pool tables, together with a selection of classic pub games - from darts to dominoes! To experience the unique spirit of the Rose & Thistle Inn, in full swing, we suggest a visit during one of the many local events.

The annual, agricultural Border Shepherd Show (held on the second Saturday in October) is one of the best attended events in the area, with craft tents and pipe bands mixing with livestock displays and sheepdog trails.

The Rose & Thistle Inn provides a social hub for the village so, particularly on show nights, you might well be lucky enough to catch an impromptu performance by a local poet or musician!
