The Old Bakehouse

Tweeddale West, Scottish Borders
09/04/2019: Really cosy atmosphere - very friendly staff - delicious food - never fails to deliver - can't wait to go back
08/04/2019: Until recently I'd never been to the Old Bakehouse but had heard good things. Over the last month I've somehow managed to visit on two separate occasions and left underwhelmed after both. The premises are cosy and have a certain charm but positioning can be everything. Avoid the table under the stairs (a nutcracker) and those next to the ladies and gents toilets. The service is good, very quick. Quick enough in fact to have a three course 'done and dusted' within an hour at breakneck speed and somewhat 'factory-like'. The dishwasher clearly needs a service as our wine glasses still had the remains of their previous users lipstick. Portion sizes vary dramatically. Whilst a member of my party couldn't finish their burger I was left hungry after enchiladas which would have made an acceptable starter. Vegetable side orders are limp, minuscule, unappetising and for some reason coated with cheese. The potatoes wedges are nice however. And to cap the evening off why not a try a nice coffee....."sorry but we only have burnt filter coffee". Very disappointing but with very little local competition, and as it's clearly so busy I don't suppose there's much incentive for it to improve.


The Cressfield Hotel

Annandale East and Eskdale, Dumfries & Galloway
10/04/2019: Stayed last weekend with friends as we were attending a other friend’s daughters wedding nearby. Met the great host /owner Nigel. We had a lovely room and nothing a problem for Nigel. Breakfast was fabulous and set us up for the day. The bar looked busy when we came back after the wedding and after a wonderful sleep left this idilic hotel. So if you want a break driving north or indeed south I can highly recommend this lovely hotel. The taxi driver who took us to the wedding venue and who picked up most guests at various other hotels said “you have knocked it off staying at Cressfield,it’s the best in the area “ who am I to argue with him.
06/04/2019: Visited Cressfield again. My partner had the steak and I had the lamb special. I can honestly say that the lamb special exceeded all expectations. The flavours complemented and augmented the lamb beautifully. I think this was one if the tastiest lamb dishes I have had. The steak my partner had never fails to impress. These main courses along with the super starters and desserts make The Cressfield Hotel a worthy destination. The accommodation is also lovely and throughout the hotel the staff are welcoming and strive to please. The atmosphere is informal but retains the elegance of the beautiful building. The owner is attentive without being intrusive and engenders similar attributes within his staff. I thoroughly recommend The Cressfield Hotel to anyone who values good food and service.


Castle Restaurant

Dee, Dumfries & Galloway
31/03/2019: My husband and I went last Saturday evening and were promptly shown to a table. The waitress informed us immediately about the specials and got us drinks. We had the sea bass and pork loin and both were so good. Best food we had in a while. Chef and we think owner Paul joined the service team towards the end of the night and we had a good laugh with him. Excellent small restaurant that's well worth a visit. We would definitely go back if it was closer to home.
14/03/2019: Could not have been better. The service was flawless and the food was delicious. Will definitely be returning in the future.


Claudios Restaurant

Annandale North, Dumfries & Galloway
19/04/2019: Really good buzz about the place. Some dishes were good, others not so. The bruschetta starter was lovely; panzanelle as a starter was odd - fried bread. The aubergine stuffed with risotto was tasty; the ravioli stuffed with butternut squash were too sweet and the pasta was far too thick. Service was great and we enjoyed the experience. Food could be better.
15/04/2019: Came for dinner with friends last night. We always come here when we are in Moffat as our friends live there. Perfect service, great food and drink as always. The best Italian we have been to. Keep up the good work and great puddings.


Night Safe Bistro

Hawick and Hermitage, Scottish Borders
04/04/2019: What an amazing place. First time here tonight and I can not complain about anything. Food was first class and so was the service. The young lady who served us was so polite and very efficient (only her second shift. Which we couldn't believe.) would definitely be back.
29/03/2019: Food was delicious, service second to none, would highly recommend, will definitely be back, very friendly staff


Cocoa Black Chocolate Shop & Cafe

Tweeddale West, Scottish Borders
19/04/2019: We pop in here for coffee once or twice a month when we visit Peebles. Lovely bright spotless cafe serving delicious cakes and bakes. Don't be put off if, like me, you are not a chocaholic as not everything is chocolate based. Friendly pleasant helpful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. I definitely recommend.
01/04/2019: We had coffee and cakes here last week. The choice and originality on offer is amazing, along with the presentation and the taste! We tried a few different cakes and would say it was the best we have ever had ! !


Coltman's Delicatessen & Kitchen

Tweeddale West, Scottish Borders
19/04/2019: My wife ( who is disabled) and I visited for morning coffee. Entrance to the cafe through the shop. Easy to manoeuvre the wheel chair through the premises. Met at the cafe door by a helpful member of staff who guided us to a suitable table. Cannot fault the service or food. Large disabled toilet which easily accommodated the wheel chair.
19/04/2019: On joliday in Peebles and gave here a go based on the reviews. We arrived and were seated quickly and given a chance to peruse the menu and wine list.



East Berwickshire, Scottish Borders
19/04/2019: We ordered fish suppers 1 night and pizzas later in the week and both meals were superb! There is an obvious wait for the meals to be cooked fresh and they are always busy so just be prepared .
19/04/2019: This is the first time I have left a review on trip adviser but today’s visit was so funny I had to do this review. I will make it simple. We ordered 3 ice creams in waffle cones. When I was handed my ice cream you couldn’t see the ice cream as it was sitting inside the waffle cone. When we questioned the size of the scoop of ice cream The young lady that served us told us that it just fell into the cone.


The Fisherman's Arms

Mid Berwickshire, Scottish Borders
23/10/2018: We called in here on the last day of our holiday - such a shame we hadn't found it earlier in our stay. My sister and myself had the tomato and basil soup which was delicious. My husband had the open toasted steak and mushroom sandwich - excellent! We were served by a lovely girl called Finlay - she couldn't have been more helpful. Well worth a visit.
23/10/2018: Visited the Fisherman's Arms for dinner as a group of six during a weekend trip with some friends. The evening as whole was, as the title suggests, was a mixture of ups and downs. As we entered the pub, it looked busy and exactly as you'd picture the village local. We were seated promptly and given menus. Our waitress asked us for our drinks order, however, when questioned on what ales and beers were on tap she didn't know and had to find out. That was ok, but unfortunately it was a sign of things to come. She returned without a wine list, as requested by other members of our group and informed us that there was only 3 beers on tap, which was a bit disappointing. Nonetheless, wine and house ales were ordered as well as our food. After roughly 10 minutes, our waitress returned to inform those of us who ordered the ale that it wasn't ready and we had to choose something else. This was really disappointing as an already small list of beers and ales had just gotten smaller, with the other two not being overly appealing. Anyway, with the drinks orders finally out of the way, we waited for our food. The wait wasn't too long and what came to the table looked really good. However, once again there was a problem, one of the side orders had been forgotten and we had to eventually ask for the waitress to bring it out. Once we began to eat a silence came over the table, which was an indication of the quality of food. I had ordered the fish and chips, which were delicious. The fish was beautifully battered and fell apart when you cut into it. The only down side were the mushy peas that accompanied the dish. It was more like a pea soup, as the peas were extremely runny and not at all mushy. Everyone else seemed more than satisfied with their food and the consensus all round was to give it the thumbs up. It's a shame to give this place 3/5 as it could have been much better and I suspect we turned up when they were having an off day, but the little things add up and unfortunately it didn't make for a great evening.


The Capon Tree Town House

Jedburgh and District, Scottish Borders
15/04/2019: My husband and I visited this restaurant for a birthday meal and were certainly not disappointed. A warm and friendly welcome, knowledgeable staff, varied menu and great atmosphere. The bar area is gorgeous like an upmarket wine bar, the dining room is like being led to a private members area. I am a vegan and was given a choice of options from the main menu adapted to meet my needs, very few establishments are able to offer such a personalised service and it is the first time in years that I have enjoyed a full 3 course meal - the pink Prosecco sorbet and frozen berries was the most delicious dessert I I’ve ever had - all the food was delicious, exquisite even with a delicate blend of flavours that complemented each other perfectly. We will definitely be recommending The Capon Tree to others and of course will visit again on the next special occasion. Excellent value for money as well, couldn’t have had a better night out, loved this place.
14/04/2019: We visited on a chilly April evening but soon warmed up in the cosy ambience and were knocked out by the standard of food. Venison with haggis croquette, poached pear and lots of other delicate little flavours all married perfectly and we nearly ended up in a drooling heap after the fig and frangipane tart Although the meal was not cheap it was much less expensive than you’d pay for something of this standard in a city and was excellent value for money. Service was both friendly and efficient. A gem!


No1 Peebles Road

Tweeddale East, Scottish Borders
13/04/2019: We stopped off here for a quick lunch stop but only wanted a small snack. We received a lovely welcome and there was a great choice from a small cafe. Some lovely different choices and we shared the banana, bacon and marmalade sourdough toastie. An unusual combination but one that works really well. Delicious! The coffee was good quality and we’ll definitely go back. Looked like a good range of cakes and traybakes although we didn’t have room. You may have to share a table but with such a welcoming atmosphere i don’t believe it’s not a problem.
01/04/2019: It is wonderful to drop by a coffee/Cafe and find a high quality offer. It is just excellent. Food, coffee,service and ambiance. You won’t be disappointed.


The Hightae Inn

Annandale North, Dumfries & Galloway, 30-45£
27/10/2018: We were a family of 3 visiting the area. We purposely chose this restaurant given it's excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.
14/10/2018: Took our friends here as they were staying with us for a few days.We keep telling them how good the food served here is as we visit whenever we are holidaying in this area. We made sure they had three courses to ensure they tasted the excellent flavours served on each course.They now know why we "rave" about the cooking as they said it was great.Well done to Morag and they even said what a goood host Mark was!


Gala Tandoori

Galashiels and District, Scottish Borders
06/04/2019: The meal was great; the amount of flavour in the curry was impecable and the lamb was cooked close to perfection. Although the staff were very amiable and pleasant, they were slightly slow when we were waiting for our food to be ordered. I think the manager sorted it nevertheless. Overall me and my dad had a great time.
02/04/2019: Went to Gala Tandoori for the second and we have really enjoyed it. ALL STAFF were friendly and the food really well prepared.


The Selkirk Arms Bar, Bistro and Restaurant

Dee, Dumfries & Galloway, 30-45£
17/04/2019: I attended the Supper and Speakers evening. We were greeted by Chris (Owner) and taken to our seats and had a drink before the evening started. A relaxed atmosphere as we settled down to a beautful two course meal. I had lamb tagine, the lamb melted in the mouth. The dessert was fantastic. Staff were so attentive! Another drink before the speakers. The speakers were from a local cycling holiday group who shared with us their 4 years experience cycling round the world. It was a wonderful evening spent in a lovely hotel. Thank you.
17/04/2019: Constantly busy with a mix of locals and visitors, which is always a good sign. Good selection of locals beers and reasonably priced wines. The menu is wide ranging and it was easy to get something to suit all our palates. It was nice to note separate vegan and vegetarian options. Service was efficient and genuine. Would definitely recommend it if you are ever on the sw300 route or just visiting


Dawyck Cafe

Tweeddale West, Scottish Borders
19/04/2019: Popped in for a bite to eat when visiting the gardens and found the food very nice and fresh. We both had salad mine's ham and my partner a ploughmans which were both fresh and tasty.
18/11/2018: Another visit to the glorious Dawyck gardens & 2 visits to the lovely tearoom. Coffee in the morning & later, delicious homemade soup with warm crusty bread. Staff are very welcoming & friendly. The perfect place to enjoy a visit to Dawyck
