Had a great quick lunch while down at Gallery to see the Margaret Olley exhibition. Gallery excellent, Cafe excellent Staff excellent Looking for a telephone number to book a table to bring guests down this week - why don't people put telephone numbers on websites ? / or email address so one can book, as it's so popular.

Was attracted at first by the beautiful setting - sweeping vistas over the green hills of the Tweed Valley - but most impressed by the service. My family was seated immediately on this busy Sunday morning, and while waiting (briefly) to be served at the counter, was impressed by the warm, friendly conversation offered to each and every patron.

This cafe I should avoided at all cost. It has become overpriced and has staff with extreme attitude problems. I know they are busy and yes it gets hectic, but control yourselves...we are there to be served and in return you get paid. Goodness, the coffee...in tiny little cups, two mouthfuls and bingo it's all gone. But, guess what? The... More

A good adjunct to the Tweed Gallery. It was a long wait but that said we were told it would be so when we ordered. Food was delicious when it came and chips are to die for. Felt a bit overpriced and service could have been a bit more smiley!

We have visited the magnificent Tweed Regional Gallery many times and had many coffees and lunches at the gallery Cafe. However today's experience was not pleasant. On the counter was a glass bell with magmificent looking scones in it so for morning tea we ordered one Devonshire tea with a flat white coffee and an extra flat white. We were... More

Lunch on Sunday 6/7/14 was spoilt by the fact that Amanda's meal of 'warm pumpkin' was cold. When returned it came back as cold again (out of the fridge type cold). Methinks that Peter needs to look carefully at staff service in both his restaurants. Had lunch a couple of days prior at Mavis' and was once again disappointed. Jan

Trip adviser is not supposed to be a forum for you to get personal Jan. You mention 'a Peter' and an 'Amanda' in your post. As far as I am aware this goes against Trip Advisers policy. More

Recently expanded, the cafe has been modernised and the views are unsurpassed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is congenial and enlivening, but the food seems to have slipped a little, not in quality so much as in quantity. I have eaten here for years, and all of a sudden the meals seem just a little sparse.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely lunch here as part of a visit to the Tweed Valley Art Gallery. Even though the place was busy on the Sunday we were there, we were greeted at the door and shown to a table by a friendly staff member. Service was prompt considering the crowd there but the food was excellent.... More

Great place for a good coffee with stunning views of the Tweed Valley. Novel menu with good service. The art gallery is a bonus if you are into it. Check opening hours before turning up. We will visit again!

We visited the Tweed Gallery ( see review) and stopped for lunch here before exploring the gallery. Generally cafés attached to a gallery are pretty poor lets face it they have a captured audience. However this café provides a lot more , we visited on a busy Saturday at lunch so we were delighted to be greeted by a charming... More
