After a long and challenging escape driving out of Edinburgh, we headed down the A86 to the beautiful village of Melrose. Situated in the stunningly beautiful Borders region of Scotland, this small affluent village captured our hearts! There's really just one small main street and The Townhouse Hotel is directly across the street from another family owned hotel named Burts. The Townhouse was recommended to us by a local relative as being a better value, so we booked a room there. It was lovely, clean and well appointed. AND the restaurant knocked our socks off at dinner! Who knew that we would encounter such finely prepared and interesting food in Scotland!? Richard had the Roasted lamb rump with rosemary potatoes, and a red wine reduction. I had the Scottish salmon with a green pea risotto and pea shoots salad. The grand finale was a trio of homemade ice creams from Over Langshaw Farm, just a few miles down the road. Kudos to executive chef Trevor Williams and the very capable Barry Owen, who made our dinner that evening!
