“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Popped in for a business lunch.

Nachos to share (which is actually pretty unusual, considering the rest of the menu) - homemade salsa and guacamole put them above the average.

The mains were excellent - the fish was huge. My supreme of chicken was great, well presented - the celeriac dauphinoise was top!

A bit more expensive than a typical bar meal but well worth the difference.

Atmos is goos and staff are pleasant.

“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

My daughter and I had stopped in Melrose after touring around to eat at another restaurant which had great reviews. Unfortunately, they didn't start dinner until 6 p.m. and we didn't think we could wait that long, so we went over to Burt's for a drink. Before we knew it, it was 6 p.m. and instead of going to the other place, we decided to stay at Burt's since the menu looked good. We were not disappointed. We ate in the bar area which was cosy and the staff were most welcoming. I chose the cod and my daughter had lamb. Both dishes were delicious, the presentation was lovely. No idea what the place we intended to eat at was like, but I was happy we stayed at Burt's!

“short break”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Thought the food was really good, well cooked and superbly presented. We went with friends who live in the area and they thought it was the best venue - now we understand why they might think that. It was a lovely meal.
