Really clever for that is fresh and interesting, served with care and attention without being over-present. A real find.

A fantastic meal in relaxed style restaurant. The menu was interesting and had something for everyone - all beautifully fresh ingredients and well cooked. It's clearly a well loved place so was very busy but our host made sure we enjoyed our meal.

Fantastic food, with a real focus on locally sourced produce - even have pictures of some of the suppliers on the walls (nice touch). It is at the higher end price wise against other restaurants so Id say perfect for a special occasion or treat.

Very good meal but the triple cooked chips were disappointing. Maris piper may have been a better potato choice

A very pleasant roadside family run restaurant with a warm and efficient welcome, comfortable seating and friendly staff, including the proprietor. The food was some of the best my friends and I have enjoyed anywhere, quite exceptional, and this from a group of retired hoteliers with considerable experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend Seasons as a delightful place to visit to enjoy excellent food in pleasant surroundings.

This is our very favourite dining experience. We are ‘townies’ and when I come to the Borders to visit my sister we wouldn’t miss having lunch/dinner here. The fish pie is to die for!

Booking for a table during the Borders Book festival was always going to be a testing time, and so it proved with some long waits to take our order and serve our soup, but fully understandable in a full restaurant on a very busy evening. We would go back, hopefully at a less busy time and enjoy the delicious food served here.

This is a little gem, the food was lovely, well prepared and presented with a good selection of wines to choose from.

As the only diners in the restaurant we had the full attention of the serving staff, who was helpful and cheerful. The food was fresh, well presented and very tasty. It was a bleak day outside and the restaurant felt cold. We'd like to visit again when there were other diners as this would likely have improved the ambience.

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!
