We were just driving through Melrose and were looking for somewhere nice to stop for some lunch and settled on the Townhouse which is in the town centre. I didn't have great expectations - I was hoping for some pub-style food I suppose, but was really impressed with the food and service here. The food was absolutely delicious, very well... More

The townhouse is very up to date, with modern interior, good food also wines. The staff are very friendly and anxious to help any way they can. There are spaces directly outside the hotel for parking.

Dropped into the Townhouse today for Sunday lunch as the sister hotel Burts was full. Very pleasant experience. Menu was broad and varied with quite a few things taking my fancy. Went for the pulled pork burger in a seeded bun with coleslaw and wedges. It was fantastic! My wife had the roast beef which also looked amazing. To finish... More

From the warm freshly baked rolls with pesto to the perfectly cooked scallops to the delicious venison and finishing with trio of pear and peanut parfait it was a really memorable meal . Ate at Burts the previous night and this meal was so much better .

The evening was spoiled by another guest who was determined to join in our conversation. Meal was good but not as good as Burts.

We ate here as "walk ins" on the recommendation of the owners of the B and B in which we were staying, and were delighted by the food and the service, the lamb three ways being especially memorable. The restaurant is well set out with plenty of space and comfortable chairs. The menu is varied but not so large as... More

We stayed in Melrose over October half term and had a lovely meal here. We went for the early bird menu as we have 2 young children and were eating early. We didn't have a booking but were welcomed in. Decent wine and good food. Definitely worth a visit and we would return again if in the area.

Slightly disappointed with the Townhouse. Attention to detail seemed to be missing. A delicious battered fish and chips served up on a cold plate and a tepid glass of white wine. The staff were not very attentive. Not your usual standard of service.

We had booked in advance as there was 7 in our group and we had a superb evening. The food was excellent, staff were great and I would recommend this restaurant very highly if you are visiting Melrose.
