We visited here for my birthday in August and upon arrival were delighted to learn that our dog was allowed in. A great start! We had drinks in the garden which was superb- nice furniture and well manicured lawn, plus sunshine, like I say, just lovely. We then went in to sit at our table and promptly ordered our food....

Although this was a pleasant lunch Burt's has been much better in the past. The menu is varied and they try to get good diversification but something magical has disappeared. There used to be that "something specia"l feel about the entire experience but it has vanished. The food was good and service okay - no quibbles there.

We arrived at burts at 5.30pm on a day that had been wet and miserable and hoped for some warm hospitality. But no. Instead we were told that they were fully booked from 6pm. We asked if we could have a drink and it was a reluctant yes. Pity because it seems a nice place and I think the food... More

My wife and I dined at Burt's on consecutive evenings. Once in the Restaurant and once in the bistro. Both meals and service were excellent. Burt's is a well appointed Gastro Pub which is well frequented by locals and travellers. It's the "place to be seen" in Melrose. Prices are very reasonable and the food/wine menus are moderately diversely. I'd... More

We had a family meal this evening at Burts. All three of us chose the beer battered fish. Service was good and the restaurant was clean despite being fairly busy on a Sunday evening. When the food came it was not great. The batter on the fish was a contrast between an insipid beige to a mid brown, and it... More

Excellent food , excellent service, lovely surroundings , no wonder it's number one on Trip Advisor in Melrose for dining. Well worth a look anytime you're in Melrose.

Always a pleasure to visit Burt's hotel restaurant when back in Scotland. I ate in the more casual bar arriving just before last food orders at 9pm. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection and had all the flavour and succulence you expect of quality Scottish beef. With a side dish of lovely fat chips and washed down with a... More

We visited for lunch with our dog, and booked a table in the bar area. The service is welcoming, friendly and efficient, and the food is excellent. Burts Hotel is genuinely dog friendly, and the staff went out of their way to welcome our dog. We would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Melrose. Top marks from us and... More

My friends and I booked a table at Burts last Saturday. The service is always great, no matter how busy they are (and they generally are). The food is very reasonably priced for the quality you get. The bar is dog friendly too.
