Lovely Sunday Lunch

This hotel offers a lovely Sunday Lunch and indeed a lovely menu with lots of choice. Our visit was for my mother in laws birthday and she really did enjoy her roast dinner. The surroundings are lovely and easy to find, just off main A7 Edinburgh to Carlisle , so if you are passing its a must!

Popped in for quick lunch so chose sandwiches with side of chips from a menu that ranged from this and baked potatoes to full and tasty sounding dishes. Service was friendly and efficient. They should however (like a lot of places these days) either stop pre-salting their chips or at least forewarn diners. Location is convenient just as you exit/enter... More

We are based near London and needed somewhere with a bit of "presence" to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. We knew of a few "cafe" type restaurants in the area but after looking at reviews plumped for the Kingsknowes. A nice setting hidden at the back of a small housing estate, we had a warm welcome and were seated in... More

Met up with some lovely friends and we went out for lunch at Kingsknowes Hotel, we had a superb lunch at very reasonable prices. We all decided we would have a light lunch followed by a dessert and we were not disappointed. Everyone had a baguette filled with various goodies ranging from smoked salmon and cream cheese to steak and... More

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.
