“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Visited here with parents who live locally and have been here quite a few times. Had a great meal with good service and was very happy. Good atmosphere, good ambient temperature and tasteful decor.
Lovely starter of chargrilled halloumi and fantastic steak main, lovely chargrilled flavour and very tender.
Son had sticky toffee pudding which was delicious as was father's creme brûlée. Didn't try coffee.
Lovely -go and try!

“Enthusiastic service of good Borders Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Cosy little bistro with an imaginative menu. Our food was well-cooked and served joyfully by the waitress who worked the dining room alone…Well Done!

“A good meal at TheClock Tower Bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We visited on a very busy evening, but the service was still very good and the food was excellent. The menu offers a nice selection, and there is a good wine list. Our meals were very nicely presented, well prepared, and delicious. We especially liked being seated in the "alcove area" - it was quiet and private.

“Standard diminishing, from such a Top Class Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were all so impressed with the Clock Tower, the quality, service of Ruth and the team, the specials and to top it all a selection of delightful cocktails. We Jed residents were so lucky!
This last year to date, standards of service are diminished unless Ruth is there to serve.
Limited specials or none
Lack of menu change
Ambience cramped with more tables
Quality of food variable - lunch is normally better.
You at times need to ask for specials if any, as board not kept up to date
Please Please go back to the whole finer dining experience we all used to have.

“Quick break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Lovely surroundings and great service. The food was delicious and not expensive for the quality. Each course arrived giving enough time to enjoy each course without being rushed. The wine choice was plentiful again not too pricey. This is the first time we have tried this restaurant and will definitely go back. The menu had some lovely choices. I had steak with the stilton sauce - lovely! My husband had the salmon which was also lovely. Cheese board was lovely as was the suite medley - cant fault it.
