Reasons for trip

We were recommended this pub to eat when we stayed in Galashiels in the borders recently as it was in a nearby country village.

We ate in the conservatory , pictured, but despite it being May the weather was bad and the conservatory was freezing and no one thought to check the heating levels until we were going. The restaurant had been advised ahead that we were vegetarian and we had a jersey royal tart ( no choice) which was absolutely delicious , sliced potatoes in a creamy sauce with flaky pastry to die for but it was small and served with wilted spinach with pine nuts in my case and with pine nuts and rocket salad for my husband. I felt it was more like a starter and did not merit the £14 a head cost for the main course.

My husband, whose birthday it was, had a rum soaked coconut sponge cake for dessert with coconut ice cream mango puree. He claimed he could not taste the rum but it was otherwise fine. I had a tres leches sponge cake with a dulce de leche sauce and the same lovely home made coconut ice cream and I was fairly happy with mine but there were no warm desserts which would have been good in the cold dining room!
