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.

We were able to book a table for 12 people at short notice (an hour in advance) and were seated at a huge table in a nicely decorated semi-private room that made us feel like VIPs which was great! The waitress was helpful in describing the menu and was attentive and accommodating when some of us asked for half-portions. The... More

This hotel is a delight, it's modern, clean and friendly. We ate in the restaurant on the Friday evening and had a delicious 3 course meal for a very reasonable cost. The staff were really nice and helpful. A visit to the town of Melrose with a stay at the Townhead Hotel is definitely recommended.

Popped up here from the caravan club site for a Friday evening meal. We both had the 3 cuts of lamb with the haggis and neeps potato which was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend it. Service was excellent. This restaurant is worth a visit.

We stopped for an early dinner and chose to eat outside. Not the most of scenic of views as it turned out. We thought the portion size a bit on the small side for the food price. Perhaps it was an off day as all the other reviews seem positive. We were disappointed as we had gone there on recommendation.

we arrived fairly late (about 20.30) but the serving team said that they would be delighted to serve us. Both the starter( particularly the crab) and main were really enjoyable. A sensibly priced wine list made for a pleasant experience. The artwork at each side of the period fireplace was very well chosen, and the overall decor/furnishings showed excellent taste

Food good but lacks atmosphere, but still worth eating here.The menu is good and the specials before 7 pm are good value, for somewhere reasonable to eat of an evening The Townhouse is fine.
