Fodor's Review

This charming whitewashed building dating from the 18th century sits in the center of Melrose. Floral pastels fill the rooms and public areas. The bar is welcoming, with a cheerful open fire and a wide selection of fine malt whiskies; it's ideal for a quiet dram before or after a meal. The vast restaurant has high-back upholstered chairs and white-linen tablecloths. Lamb with applesauce and lentils or chicken breast with truffle foam are typical entrées on the prix-fixe menu. Fishing can be arranged.
