Food here is of high quality, locally sourced, it's quite expensive fillet steak @£30 each but they were delicious! Chairs are very hard, and cushions need replacing, they are not the most comfortable: they are still the originals from "Chapters" and were never comfortable then!. Wine as suggested "of the week" was lovely. It was a delightful Valentine's evening. Thank you! Overall meal for 2 was around £120, which is not cheap, but it was very good, so we don't mind paying for good quality and service.

Excellent dinner. Great choices on menu and so nice to read where and who supplies the restaurant which shows care as well as support for local producers. And even though it was New Years eve it was the normal menu running which we appreciated. Lovely front of house team. Will definately be back when next staying in Melrose.

Very pleasant evening with good food. This was a birthday celebration and with this coming so close to Christmas (Dec 14) it is always a lottery trying to go out for a quiet meal for two. Our evening was slightly marred by being placed next to a large rather lively office party. Given the restaurant only had 4 other customers being seated here seemed rather unnecessary and somewhat spoiled our otherwise enjoyable evening.

Really good, I mean really good. Everything was just really good. It shows that passion for food, good ingredients and a desire for high professional standards can be achieved. The owners here are hands on and do it in their stride, they must be the envy of many chefs and restaurateurs.

Highly recommenced . We drove quite a distance, it took us about 1 1/2 hours driving , our journey was based on the web site description of good food, and it was true , it was all spot on . It was worth driving 2 x the distance we did , you will be very pleased you did.

This was a lovely Sunday evening, best steak I have ever had! The restaurant had a lovely cozy welcoming feel and the food was delicious. Service was great and made most welcome on a cold night! They had a great selection of wines and the menu was very seasonal yet a great selection to choose from. I didn't have any dietary requirements but I'm sure they would be able to accommodate alternatives.

As regular visitors to lovely Melrose over the past 3 years we have eaten in nearly all the local restaurants in town - including, on our most recent trip, the newest. We can confidently say that Seasons is still, consistently, the pick of the lot. The combination of Roger's fine cooking of best local produce, Bea's friendly, unintrusive service and the understated convivial surroundings all make for the ideal dining experience. Long may Seasons keep up the great work !!

If this were our local restaurant we’d dine weekly! The welcome is friendly, the service attentive but relaxed and the food is excellent with judicious use of local and seasonal ingredients. The wine initially looks a bit limited but is quite imaginative and there should be a wine for just about all tastes. Finally, and best of all, great value!

Excellent and very tasty food and a little bit different. Eggs with chantarelles and truffle oil were just fantastic as was the Roe Deer. Sirloin Steak very tasty and perfectly cooked. Loved the bread served, the "carafe" of wine rather than a bottle and the choice of sweets. All in all a great night of dining.

Once again an absolutely beautiful meal. Great variety with lots of local ingredients. Bea is a great host and Roger’s cooking contains great flavours and is presented wonderfully. This really is a great little restaurant and a gem in the Scottish Borders. We have been here a few times now and will definitely be back.

My partner and I loved our visit to Seasons on Friday 17th Aug 2018. The staff were excellent and the restaurant is small and intimate. There was absolutely no pressure for us to finish and leave before we were ready, which was lovely. The food was outstandingly good, and it is great to know that you are also supporting local food suppliers/producers making the cost more reasonable. I have no hesitation in very highly recommending Seasons to all.

Over-rated. The pate and the ice cream were quite good, our entrees, steak and tagliatelle, were disappointing, especially after all the farm-to-table hype. Service was less than stellar.

We enjoyed an excellent evening at Seasons; well worth the 40 minute drive from our base in Peebles. The restaurant fulfilled our every expectation, high quality food, attentive yet understated service, a good choice for vegetarians in our party, and perfect timing in ordering and serving our meal. Prices of food and drinks were perfectly pitched and we left thoroughly satisfied with the quality and value of our night out.

We went there with a friend from Glasgow who was staying with us, looking fora leisurely meal and the restaurant was ideal. No too noisy, efficient friendly and unobtrusive service. Good food and a wide range of wines and spirits. Maybe a bit pricey for everyday dining.

We chose Seasons because it was recommended by the Scotsman as a good place to eat in the Borders. They weren't wrong. The food was delicious and we were well served by Bea who is part of the couple who run the place. The steak was the best that my husband had tasted in a long time. We also particularly enjoyed the tasting platter to start.
