Went for a Sunday Cauvery and the meal was terrible. Roast beef which was over cooked and very very tough. Could not even cut into it. Sent it back and I also won't be back to eat there again !!

This hotel is over 300 years old and used to be a coaching inn. I stayed in a single room but it was very comfortable. It was ensuite, shower cubicle, with skylights. The food was absolutely gorgeous. Most of it was home made which made all the difference. If you had dietary needs/allergies they catered to that without complaint. I... More

Great people who welcomed our hen party of 30 with open arms after a drama at another pub in Melrose and we had a fantastic time. Friendly faces and locals. Will be back soon

We visited this hotel for a meal with elderly parents and it was awful. The food, which was billed as a carvery included dry meat, over-cooked vegetables (we think they were vegetables), congealed gravy and burnt dried out roast potatoes; we think the large cold burnt object was a yorkshire pudding, but would not bet on it - despite alerting...

My wife and I thought we would pay the G&A a visit for a bar meal and whilst the bar staff were helpful and friendly, the food was awful. The soup was all but inedible due to the amount of pepper that had been used in its making and my beef burger had such a large wedge of Brie on... More

Went with a couple of friends and kiddo for lunch- were told that there was no fish fingers for the order but the chef offered to cook goujons (far better!). Food was fresh, tasty and quick, very reasonably priced and staff was very friendly and efficient. Looking forwards to going back one night to sample the dinner menu and try... More

we arrived at 8.13 pm after a hard day's walking to be told that no food was available after 8pm. This message was delivered in a manner that seemed to suggest that such poor service for visitiors to the town was fairly normal. Happily we found that there were several othe restaurants that served until 9pm in Melrose.

After a days walk we were looking for an relaxed and informal evening including a quality dinner and that is exactly what is provided at the G&A. The bar and reception lounge is comfortable and well stocked with a range of beers and malts. The restaurant is traditional, the staff helpful, friendly and efficient and the food excellent and tremendous... More

We eaten here 2-3 times now and always found the food to be freshly cooked to oder and of a high standard. The prices are reasonable and there is no problem going in straight from a walk in the hills. We have always found the staff to be efficient and friendly. I can highly recommend all of the vegetarian meals,... More
