Seasons is a short walk from the property and we found it to be an excellent decision. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent.

The warning signs were there when I called to reserve a table and asked if I could have a table for 8.15pm. Could I not make it earlier I was asked. So I suggested 8pm and there was a pause then the booking was accepted. Got the impression my concession of 15 minutes was not entirely appreciated. Now I know... More

Relaxing bistro restaurant serving the best of local ingredients. Lots of delicious fresh fish dishes all of which are locally sourced. Best 'blue' steak my son has ever had - cooked to perfection with excellent flavour. The homemade chips are a must!!!! Owners welcoming and attentive to the right level. Homemade bread delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We had dinner here as a family on the night of the Melrose. The food was delicious, I had scallops then roe deer. I like the fact that they use local and seasonal produce. The service from the young staff could be faster and better; glasses and bottles not being cleared from the table; not offering other drinks etc.

We returned to Gattonside for another break. The first thing we did was book a meal at Seasons. Be a and Roger make you feel so welcome. The food is amazing as always , the scallops and roe deer were out of this world. We have booked again for Friday, can't recommend this restaurant enough.
