“Fresh and Full of Flavour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Limited choice but freshly made and full of flavour.
Dined in the bar/lounge restaurant which was busy with other hotel guests and local diners.

“Friendly welcome”

We are always able to count on this restaurant for a good meal at lunch time.The ladies washroom is very good except that the smell of the lilies was a bit overpowering.

“Consistant meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Have now been to eat four times in the last couple of months, and have found the food excellent every time. Some restaurants cannot always give consistency but the Kingsknowe manages this very well and we have eaten on different times of the day and different days of the week. Would certainly recommend it and give it 10 out of 10

“Lovely staff nice food well cooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I go to the Kingsknowes when I go to Bookers in Galashiels because it is my treat once a month .I had to think why I liked it so much and it comes down to the blonde lady who seems to be in charge, I like to see someone who looks and acts as though she knows exactly what is going on, she seems efficient and confident so it rubs off on the other staff and gives assurance to the customer.

In these days of slap dash service it is a joy to see someone so in control.

The food is well cooked and interesting, my children like the play park and the menu for them is good.

Afternoon tea is very nice, we dropped in on a Sunday with friends and the homemade shortbread was lovely.

To sum up it is nice to be served with more than a modicum of style and courtesy.

Well done the blone lady, sorry I don't know your name but you really make it.
