Been here before but heard it had been refurbished. They have done a great job of updating the Courtyard Bar and the menu. Good food as usual and the service was first class.

Eight of us had a very good evening meal in the old stables bar area. Good food in very comfortable surroundings which have been recently decorated. Staff were helpful, friendly but not too invasive and we will definitely return. This is one of the best restaurant/hotels in Galashiels.

Great meal, friendly staff and all for a reasonable price! Some of the reviews claim the food is slow or over priced. Rubbish! Its fresh cooked to order food, the prices reflect this and you have to wait for fresh cooked food!

We have used this place a couple of times and been very satisfied on each occasion. We took lunch one day and dinner on a separate visit. Staff were great and the food was good.

We booked a room at the hotel for a family event in April. The staff were very helpful and accommodating on the day. We ordered some light refreshments (sandwiches, sausage rolls, shortbread and meringues) - these were well presented and very tasty. The room itself was good, with plenty of room, tables, chairs, etc. The hotel itself was very pleasant... More

The bar/restaurant had been redesigned since our last visit, and is a huge improvement, light and airy, but still with a Scottish feel. Staff were very welcoming and found us a table even though we hadn't booked (but we were there early at 12.00, by 1.00 the tables were full). The food was excellent, with the Roast Beef particularly good,... More
