Stayed overnight in Jedburgh decided to have our evening meal here again after the last visit. The food was divine, wine & lager well chilled and staff perfect. I had Brie and caramelised onion brûlée my husband had sweet potatoes and chilli soup. Two empty plates and bowls ! I decided to have the sirloin steak again because last time... More

Eaten at the Clock tower a number of times and generally it has always been excellent but our latest experience on Saturday night was very poor due to poor service. The food was as good as always but we had to wait some time for menus, when they finally did arrive there was quite a delay on the order being... More

Mr&Mrs Lincoln, Thank you for taking the time to review the bistro. While I can understand your frustration at waiting for desserts, I would like to defend the two waitresses on duty as they have been instructed by myself to allow diners a break between courses. I do not personally feel giving 15-20minutes break after a main course is a... More

Went with work colleagues for lunch. Staff always very welcome and accommodating and didn't have any problems with us even although there was quite a number of us. Even at lunchtime, it appeared to be fully booked, advisable to reserve a table in advance! A number of us had smoked salmon platter with prawns, others had scallops, all done to... More

This is simply the most wonderful eating place in the Scottish Borders. The food is lovely fresh, well presented and then served by the most wonderful lady called Ruth. Everybody is made to feel special within a Bistro with a warm pleasant atmosphere. Why can't other eating establishments do this! Wonderful place. Jedburgh is so lucky to have the Clock... More

We found out about the restaurant through Trip Advisor. I booked a table for 5 of us at 6pm opening. There were a couple of other tables already booked with other patrons. Decor really lovely with tiny fairy lights contributing to an intimate atmosphere. There was a fantastic choice on the menu and the specials board including French Onion Soup... More

we went for both nights whilst staying in Jedburgh. A warm scottish welcome, with some cracking cocktails that got stronger as the night went on. We didn't eat downstairs because they were fully booked both nights, which says a lot. I would go back, just for the top tunes and fun time.

It was a spur of the moment decision which took us to the Clock Tower. As it was a Wednesday night we didn't bother booking and it was not busy. The menu was excellent and we genuinely had difficulty choosing. As soon as we started on the first course we realised we were in for a treat and the rest... More

The food is probably the best English food I've ever tasted. Use the menu as a guide, they will cook things to your specification. 5 star food, 6 star service, low cost! If you live in Jedburgh and you haven't been here, be ashamed! Amazing!
