Set in the heart of the Scottish Borders the Buccleuch Arms is a charming four star Inn with an incredible history dating back to 1836. In recent years the Buccleuch has earned an award-winning reputation as one of the finest Inns in Scotland, welcoming both locals and guests from further afield. Most recently of course winning Scottish Inn of the Year 2015 at the Scottish Hotel awards in April. So whether you're visiting the Scottish Borders on the new Borders Railway or passing through, make a point of stopping at the Buccleuch. We hope you'll be pleasantly surprised.
My wife and I had a late lunch here after going on an Alpaca trek nearby. This Buccleuch Arms was one of the places recommended by the owner of the alpacas and I can see why. The staff were friendly, the service was good and the food was tasty with the nachos being particularly enjoyable. If you're in the area and looking for food you could do a lot worse than eating here.

Went to Burts for dinner with a number of friends, and the welcome was friendly and everything looked good, until the orders were taken and the food started to arrive. First the Eastern European waitress couldn't set the table, and we had to correct her mistakes. Then when the food arrived I had no cutlery so asked for a set, which was not provided and I had to get my own. The food was not brilliant, dried up pork terrine with four thin toasted French bread that was a real tooth breaker and was impossible to eat, followed by fish and chips. The best bit was the fish which was well cooked and tasty, but the chips looked to me as if they were fresh out of the freezer and not home made and not nearly as nice as the chippy. Quite expensive for a poor meal.

A brief review to say we had dinner here over New Year and were hosted by a really friendly staff team (of two) and enjoyed a very decent, flavoursome, well constructed meal. In particular, and the reason for reviewing, was that I had some of the most tender beautifully cooked venison I have had in a good while, well-sourced I guess!!

Another visit to our favourite local Indian restaurant, this time with extended family. Staff were friendly as always!
Difficult gor us regulars to get something other than our favourite mains of chicken chilli masala and rogan josh but the visitors were impressed with their choices too. Popadums and mix of starters all good too.
There are cheaper places in town but this is always first choice.
Will be back soon!

We decided to try this Italian restaurant on New Years Eve as my partner who is Italian prefers to try family run ones rather than the big chain Italian ones.
We were not disappointed. This is a lovely restaurant, typical Italian decor and very cosy. We were greeted by the owner and he is such a lovely man. He chatted in Italian with my partner too and it was really nice for him to have a conversation with a fellow Italian.
We had planned to just have a main course as it was just for lunch but there were so many things we liked on the menu so ended up having a 3 course lunch.
The food was amazing. I gave my partner a taste of my carbonara and he said it was the best carbonara he had tasted outside of Italy.
The young man who served us was so lovely. Even on our way out , the chef came and said goodbye too.
It was such a lovely experience and cannot wait to return.
We highly recommend this restaurant , especially if you are looking for an excellent authentic Italian one. We were also pleasantly surprised at how much our bill was. Excellent price for the food we got. Large portions and very well presented.

Just enjoyed an excellent meal in the Brasserie. My venison, beetroot & celeriac gratin, venison & chestnut faggot, roasted beetroot and red grape jus was very good and my wife enjoyed the Guinea fowl special. Cheeses were well kept, came with a lovely fresh tasting chutney and plenty of biscuits! What made it even better was the apparently very low mark up on their wine list. We had a great bottle of Pingus Psi which retails at about £25 and was sold at £46 which in terms of restaurant mark ups is astonishingly low and gave us a chance to enjoy this lesser wine from the fabled Pingus domain at a half decent price. Other wines seemed also to be keenly priced. IMO there are some restaurants that you simply should not go to on account of their cynical approach to wine pricing. Well done Townhouse.
