Fodor's Expert Review Adam Room
With a minstrels' gallery, crystal chandeliers, and tall windows with views over the Tweed, the dining room at the Tontine Hotel has a grand feel. It's a bit surprising, therefore, that it also serves good home cooking for the family at reasonable prices. Local produce is used for all the dishes, including the appetizing steak pie, lamb shanks, and a slow-roasted haunch of venison. For the most part the menu remains within the traditional mold, though with creative touches. There is also a good wine list. Bring along the kids, as they have their own menu.
