Windlestraw Lodge has just won the Scottish Borders, Best Local Produce Champion, Farm to Fork award sponsored by NFU Scotland. The competition, now in its 15th year, invites members of the public to nominate their favourite eatery for its excellent food and customer service.

Windlestraw's proprietors, Alan and Julie Reid, have won many awards for their food over the years, and this is partly due to their philosophy of sourcing local produce for their menus.

Diners at Windlestraw knows the menus all feature locally sourced food. As Alan says, "I like to cook with locally produced fresh ingredients that are in season. The food is at its best and ultimately taste is what good food is all about."
