Having been turned away from Burts because they were "too busy" (4 others in the bar!) we walked across the road and were welcomed in for an early supper. Beautifully presented meal, served promptly and at a bargain price (early dinner menu). Well worth a visit if you are in Melrose

We had a lovely meal at The Townhouse during a recent weekend in Melrose. My partner enjoyed the smoked haddock scotch egg and the lamb chops, and I had the monkfish tail with puy lentils- very tasty. We chose from the good selection of ice creams and sorbets for dessert, and also a nice cheese board. House wine was decent... More

Went here for lunch and see they now have an 'early bird' menu at lunchtime as well as in the evening, two courses for £15.95 which was good value for the quality of the food. I had the smoked haddock fish pie followed by panacotta and both were excellent. My husband chose fish and chips which was very good too.... More

Great fine dining at a reasonable price in the heart of Melrose. We ate dinner here twice in a three-day visit. That speaks volumes. The food, the service and the people watching were all first rate. The best choice in the village!
