Easy to find, as it rests on the main street and is a beautiful shade of pink. I think more houses and buildings should be colourful it makes for a cheerier world.
Inside the lounge and bar areas have just recently been tastefully refurbished, offering a cosy country Scottish Borders welcome.
The Horse and Hound offers nice meals seven days a week at reasonable prices- TripAdvisor reviews prior to 2019 do not apply!
The Horse and Hound is a handy place to stop off as you make your way through Rulewater, especially if the sun is shining. Sit at the picnic tables out the front as the sun rays sink over the quaint sandstone cottages and winding roads. To the rear there is an outdoor paved patio area too. Its quite popular with motorbikers as a place to gather and regroup after a cruise over the Carter Bar or from Keilder Water, for cyclists and walkers too.
One of the most traditional and yet remarkable sights this pub still offers is the occasional horse tethered outside. Photographic perfection.
There is further parking to the rear of the building, if you drive past the pub on your right, go over the bridge and take your first right at the red letterbox.
