    When we found that our preferred lunchtime spot was fully booked, we decided to drive across to Selkirk and revisit the Philipburn. Compared to previous visits some years ago when I was a regular visitor, our Saturday lunch was a rather disappointing affair. For one, the menu had switched from traditional Scottish fare to a fairly limited Italian style menu and was missing some of the choices shown on their website menu. For a weekend, the restaurant and bar area was quite empty, with just one other table occupied. Our lunch order was 1. Deep fried battered cod, served with artichokes and fennel salad and tartare sauce (I added £2 for chips). 2. Cured meat board, homemade chutney, with sourdough bread. We finished off with 1. baked cheesecake with fruit compote, and 2. Meringue, strawberry coulisse and forest fruit, and a black coffee. The cod and salad portions were rather small, and the chips were very dry and over crispy. The meat platter came with insufficient bread for the amount of meat served, and although the staff noticed and returned with the missing olives, the homemade chutney never materialised. The deserts were fairly unremarkable. But, and unforgivable for an Italian menu, the coffee, despite being served in a cafetiere, was of the instant variety. On Googling up the Philipburn Hotel later, I saw that it had recently changed hands so, to be fair, it may be that the new owners are still settling in. It certainly won't be replacing our usual dining out venues, at least yet.

    Enjoyed a great Sunday lunch out with family. Lovely Italian menu but most of us had the roast dinner which was delicious. Friendly, welcoming and relaxed environment!

    food was perfect , Eggplant Parmigiana (Parmigiana di Melanzane), very authentic, and the fish & chips were fresh and well prepared. We’ll definitely be back to try other dishes. Very comfortable and friendly staff.

    First time for a meal (midweek) since the recent change of ownership. We liked the hotel before but had only been for drinks not food. Service and appearance of the hotel is still excellent and the food we really good. I have the vegan choice and the home made burger was one of the best I have had. Small but well chosen wine List: the Rioja we had was as described and very nice. When the bill came we were pleasantly surprised. Will be back.

    Last minute booking at the end of our holiday. I wished we had gone earlier. It was a lovely meal in great surroundings with very pleasant and helpful staff. I am a coeliac and I had plenty of choice for my meal. If I get the chance again I will return without a doubt.

    Nice friendly staff, very good food and service. No great ambience in the restaurant but it was fine. We sat in front of fire exit windows that people went behind our table to exit to smoke. I was surprised this was allowed and it was quite annoying, and on a cold night would have been unacceptable. Overall though, very satisfied with our evening.
