An inspector came calling!

What a rewarding week we have had! First we had our annual Visit Scotland review and retained our 5 star rating. Then Surprise! the chap on table one turns out to be the man from the AA. After building up the suspense over a coffee chat he presents us with 5 Gold Stars! We were of course delighted and credit to our wee team. However more was to come. The restaurant which has never had an official accreditation was awarded a ' strong'  two rosettes! Brilliant! This is our chef Stu Waterston first personal rating and reflects the hard work in the past year. 5 star gold and 2 rosettes is unique in the Borders. What a year it has been. Thanks to everyone for your continued support!
