Dined here recently with friends. Food was very good, would recommend the venison and puy lentils. Chicken gougons ordered by one of us a bit overdone though. Nice wine, good service and all together a very good experience. Will be back soon.

All staff were professional as well as kind and caring. My father is in hospital and they allowed me to stay day to day. I can never thank them enough. Annie nevin

Visit this Hotel every time we come to Gala. Food is always excellent and staff very friendly. Had a slightly longer wait on the Saturday, but it was busy.

A nice place to eat, Good menu and reasonably priced food. Friendly staff too. There is lovely views from the conservatory out over the river Tweed. The leaves on the trees were starting to turn. Really picturesque.

Myself and my partner have chosen to eat here numerous times in the last year, usually on a Saturday night. Although busy we have always managed to get a table for two in the public bar, where the atmosphere is very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and its nice to see familiar faces whenever we go in. The food... More
