Not seeking to upset the chef we decided to order from a specials menu, mostly hot sandwiches or salads, all... More

Called in at the last minute on our way through Melrose and had a wonderful meal. The selection suited us all and the wine was very reasonably priced and delicious. The teenagers and young men were suitably impressed.
