In Jedburgh for the weekend and needing a meal on Saturday night my wife spotted a poster advertising a steak meal and a glass of wine of beer for £10.95 at The Forresters. Thinking it might be crowded and noisy we tried it any way and it was excellent. We were directed upstairs from the bar to the restaurant and... More

This meal was booked day after a meal in Belters Bar that is in same building. This was a tapas meal. We didn't expect to find tapas in Jedburgh but the family who run the place had recently returned from a lengthy residency in Spain. The food was brilliant all hand made and prepared fresh per order. We couldn't fault... More

Wonderful authentic Tapas + some Scottish versions make up a wide choice menu. 4 tapas for £12.50 plus a special discount of 10% on all food and drink after 6pm made it a real bargain. Excellent well chosen range of Spanish wines at good prices.

We ate here on a Sunday night. The welcome from the owner was friendly; locals in the downstairs bar were equally friendly and chatty. We both ate steaks (good steaks) with salad. Drinks: a Scottish stout; and a Californian Merlot. Very tender and juicy steaks, drinks were fine, We left cheerful, and well fed!

My husband and I came here to try tapas as we weren't quite sure what it was and fancied a wee change, the menu had lots of choices which all sounded very tasty. We were served our dishes by a very polite and helpfull waitress who also helped us make our choices, it all looked amazing and tasted very fresh... More
