Another classy lunchy spot in Jedburgh

We went here for lunch recently. Nice venue, close to the Abbey. Lovely, friendly service. It was laid back so if you are into speedy eating, you might want to ask for things to speed up a little. That said, I liked it a lot. I had haggis balls - a larger than the advertised starter portion... read more

A smallish restaurant with simple decor but friendly staff who looked after us when we walked in without reservations. I liked the food on the two evenings we ate there. Not a great variety of drinks but enough choice of wine and a small selection of beers. Tap water provided and topped up without asking.

What a place the food was to die for. Good service from the waitress. So glad we choose it the fish was cooked to perfection. My only complaint is that the carrots we're a little sweet for my taste buy apart from that lovely. Would I return oh yes as soon as we're close enough.

Went here on our way up to Kinross and what a lovely find. The place itself it welcoming with a pleasant atmosphere, the staff are attentive and again welcoming. I had the cajun calamari to start and then the Monkfish wrapped in parma ham. Both very nice, good portion size and flavoursome. My partner had the patè and then the... More

Went here for my husband's birthday. The food was excellent. The staff made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed it so much that we went back again 2 nights later.

Bookings were well thought out so that there was no crowd of diners all arriving at the same time, which meant that service flowed smoothly even though they were fully booked. We also did not feel rushed to finish our meal. The food was to a very high standard and featured fresh, local ingredients and generous portions. The dishes were... More

Dear Pauline, Thank you for your fantastic review, I will ensure all the staff are made aware. We do where possible try to space bookings so that customers receive an efficient service during their time in the Bistro and we adopt "the tables yours for the evening" policy as we don't want our diners to feel rushed. Hopefully we will... More
