“Not worth my time”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

This is a below average tourist shop. There are higher quality shops for wool and other things on High Street (the main street) in Melrose. For Scottish woolen goods, instead shop either in Edinburgh or Hawick. (Be wary of labels like "Designed in Scotland," which probably mean Made in China. Not all clothing at Abbey Mill indicated where it was made at all. This is also true at some of the more touristy shops on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.)

this is just the same as all the other mills and wool shops. All Edinburgh woollen mills sell same things and they are in every town/village

“Lunch Stop”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

Pretty standard Mill shop, with what we thought an expensive food area, as well as being very "canteeny" although very clean.

“Abbey Mill Tea Rooms”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

Pleasant shop nice clothing at good prices. But the visit to the upstairs tea rooms are a must.We had the best ever "afternoon tea for two" for £9.95.
The cakes,scones were fresh and wonderful.Also included ham /tomato and cheese/tomato sandwiches made with very fresh bread. This was excellent value and on looking at their menu,wished we had another day to sample it.
The two ladies who ran this were friendly and welcoming.Dont miss this!
