Fabulous fish and chips at Burt's - usually is and we weren't disappointed at our last visit there. Very busy, very friendly - ideal for a meal and catch up with friends.

Choose from a lovely bar area or an elegant dining room. Enjoyed the mix of business folks, locals, & traveling families in the bar. We all had the "Baked Summer Squash with Roasted Artichokes, Heritage Carrots, Gnocchi and Pesto (V)". It was a lovely vegetarian option (the gnocchi was a bit different that what I'm used to, more like a tater tot). The sticky toffee pudding was the best we've had. Located right on Melrose's quaint central square.

Found this a very disappointing experience. Was recommended, so booked a table whilst visiting Melrose.

Where to start - chips which came with fish and burger appeared to be frozen. Burger to be very honest was poor, no flavour and doubt it had been seasoned. The less said about the fish the better, though the peas did appear to be fresh.

The lamb was nicely cooked , but couldn't work out the relationship with the vegetables that came with it which include a whole tomato. To be really picky there was no sauce or jus, there were frozen chips though.

The deserts were even more disappointing, the description soundly lovely, but the delivery was average to say the least.

All in all one of the worst meals I have had in a while and certainly from a price point of view, definitely over priced.

Would say this is one to miss and if best Melrose,can offer there is a Macdonald's in Galashiels.

Burts is a family favourite. We have been many times. The food is always good, but this time we had to wait one hour to get our food. As we had two small children, waiting this long was disappointing.
