We were seated downstairs from the main diners so it made it more like a private party. The service was... read more

It was busy but we got a window seat in the end which looked out to the loch. Beatiful view, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Tasty food!

Booked a meal here for a 30th birthday and the service was very accommodating - the chef prepared a special vegan meal for me and I asked if they could make a meringue cake for the group to which they created an amazing tower of meringue, cream and fresh summer fruits. Everyone enjoyed their main courses - it was a... More

It's sort of a pub / restaurant in an unusual setting just outside Melrose in a housing estate, Not a Loch for me, more of a park pond but we sat outside and it was lovely with the tinkling of the fountain. Two attentive and polite waitresses, nice menu and children friendly. I had a ham and Mull cheddar panini,... More

Had red and white wine and broken glass fragments spilt on me before our meal was served. No apology as such. The manageress was more interested in getting her carpet cleaned and moved us to another table so that she could deal with it! No-one even enquired if my clothes had been ruined apart from the other customers. We were... More
