We booked in for dinner and whilst the restaurant was quiet and lacking in atmosphere, the food more than made up for it. We both went for fish and the sea bream and the place dishes were beautiful and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Desserts were tempting and delivered the goods. Definitely worth a visit.

We booked in advance to ensure that we could get in. Took friends as we had been before and recommended the lunch menu. It was the best experience and the highlight of our holiday. Staff, food and surroundings are exceptional

Had a lovely meal out in Melrose at the Townhouse Hotel. Varied menu, tasty freshly cooked food, good service. I can recommend the Cullin Skink. All our party of 8 enjoyed the food. One of our party was vegan and was impressed with the choice of appropriate dishes particularly the sorbet for pudding.

A group of 8 of us all staying for the weekend decided to eat out. One of the party is vegan and that was our priority, although the menu does not have a huge vegetarian never mind vegan menu the staff were really helpful. Our table was beautifully set in the lovely dinning room. The menu was new that night...

We went here for lunch. The set menu seemed fantastic value but we only made it through two courses we were so full. Very generous portions and very tasty. Lovely service and a nice place to sit and eat with relaxing décor.

We stayed at the Townhouse for a short break on 4-5 March and it proved to be a very good choice. Although in the centre of town it is quiet. Parking is in the yard of the hotel across the road - and if you are lucky you can pull up near the hotel front. The road is a one...
