    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's Day treat, dinner at Seasons restaurant, on 14th February. We have never been disappointed with the food at this local gem. However, I'm glad that on this occasion, we opted for chef Roger's special set Valentine's menu instead of going a la carte. From the sharing platter starter, to the succulent beef Wellington and its accompanying sides, and the selection of delicious deserts, the food was truly outstanding. Bea's attentive 'front of house' service rounded off the experience nicely.

    Great food offering, it was so hard to choose what to eat as all of the menu options sounded wonderful. Three courses were had by my partner and I, and shared to maximise the food offering. The restaurant had a great relaxed feel and we will be back again when in the borders, if we were locals this place would be a regularly visited. Keep up the great work.

    Great food as always - locally sourced and delicious. Went on a quiet January day at the end of the lunch window and had the restaurant to ourselves which, surprisingly, was great, and obviously meant that service was wonderful!

    An excellent lunch, thoroughly enjoyed by both my wife and myself. The smoked salmon was top notch, and the delicious rum infused toffee pudding was our favourite Seasons desert yet.

    Excellent meal and friendly service from this great local restaurant in Gattonside. The fillet steak wirh lobster was absolutely fantastic. The restaurant is unfussy but with a cosy, relaxed ambiance, not too loud but not too quiet to hear others speak, will definitely return and highly reccomend!

    Scallops were perfectly done, salmon lacked flavor, venison was excellent - shouldn’t come w chips, whipped potatoes and caramelized onions. Baked peaches disappointing. No Wi-Fi, important for travelers.

    The perfect place to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary! A beautiful setting enjoying good wine and food cooked to perfection. A warm welcome on arrival and service second to none. A place that I will never forget and would love to revisit on our next time in the area. Thank you so much for making our Anniversary so special.

    Something special, the quality of the food was exceptional. Service was very good, except the assistant who served the food and plonked the desert menu down was a bit lacking in service skills. It was so good that I recommended it to a friend who booked it immediately.

    Our booking was at 19.15 and by that time on a Saturday the restaurant was full. It is a long, low-ceilinged room and is under-illuminated. Flickering candle lights do not create enough light to see food and enjoy it. The room was hot. We accepted a table in the shop part at the entrance, where these problems do not apply. There is a reason why this fairly unprepossessing room should be full, bearing in mind that it only opens two days a week: the cooking is wonderful. We would love to eat there again and this is why. All ingredients are carefully sourced, attributed and handled with the greatest care by a very experienced chef. He loves to cook and it shows in the temperature, presentation and above all, taste of every dish. Service is efficient, wines are decent, but this place is about food.

    Delicious food with an emphasis on local producers. The pork was outstanding and the black pudding amazing! The mackerel pate was very good and there was a tempting array of desserts (we were tempted!) The famous soda bread lived up to expectations too. Our hostess and our waitress were efficient and very pleasant and we felt welcomed. A lovely evening and highly recommended.

    We were given a friendly welcome even though we arrived a bit early and we were given a choice of seating. The menu, whilst not extensive, offers plenty of choice with interesting selections of local produce. The service was prompt and attentive, the atmosphere was homely with touches of luxury such as the wine selections which made you feel you were somewhere s bit special. The food was lovely and good to know they support local producers .

    We liked the restaurant. We liked it a lot! Seasons does justice to great locally sourced and in season ingredients which are then cooked brilliantly. What great plates of food we had. We didn’t have dessert as we were too full but our starters and mains were fab. If you get the chance, go. We’re only sorry we don’t live locally.

    A lovely restaurant, lovely people who don’t just witter on about ‘local and seasonal’.They believe in it and deliver in a big way with a short, perhaps even perfect menu of,we’ll, everything. That includes local beers and gins (superb Selkirk gin), the wine list and of corse the all important food. Simply excellent and all beautifully presented.
