Burts Hotel

Market Square, MELROSE, TD6 9PL

The Henderson family has owned this 18th-century hotel for around four decades. Overlooking the market square, it was built in 1722 by a local dignitary. Its age dictates listed-building status, which restoration, extension and upgrades have all respected in the Hendersons' quest for a modern hotel. After a day out, settle in with one of the 90 single malts, or a pint of Caledonian Deuchars IPA. The restaurant has held two AA Rosettes since 1995, thanks to starters such as herb-crusted hen's egg, confit tomato, spinach and Isle of Mull cheese sauce. This could be followed by harissa-marinated rump of Borders lamb, with lightly spiced couscous, yogurt, and courgette Charlotte. Light lunch specials may list breaded fishcakes with sweet chilli and lime sauce; or breaded chicken goujons with curried mayo dip, salad and fries. Puddings include a range of locally made ice creams, or savour the selection of Scottish and Borders cheeses.
