One of my favourites. Late decision and just managed to squeeze the 2 of us in so my tip would be to book before you turn up ! Great food and especially the Perthshire Burger - almost a meal on its own.

This was an pre-organised visit for lunch by a group of about 20 members of the Royal Air Forces Association. The group was made up of all ages and mobility. Some travelled independently ie bus & car; others via the Borders Railway - which added an extra pleasurable experience. Karen and Sandy Craig and their staff were most welcoming and... More

I took my elderly mother on a trip to Tweedbank on the train. We got off and went off in search of somewhere to have coffee and lunch. We left the train station and happened upon the signs that pointed us towards this restaurant. We decided to try it. We got there around 11.45 am even though lunch is at... More

There is no pretence here. Good, well cooked food which doesn't imply anything other than what you ask for. Simple, varied menu which is not over priced. Recommended !!

Have been thinking about dining here for a while and thought we would check it out by having a coffee 1st. Really good staff who looked after us really well. The coffee was excellent as were the tray bakes. We talked about booking for an evening meal and advised that booking was advised if we wanted a window table. The... More

This slowed the preparation of our food to approx 45mins. The food... More

Hi Stewart, thanks for all your positives on our superb surroundings, great atmosphere and tasty food. I am sorry that you had a wait for your main courses. Although the restaurant was quiet, we did have quite a few carry out pizza orders on at the same time, which may have increased your wait. We do cook everything fresh to... More
