In Jedburgh for the weekend and needing a meal on Saturday night my wife spotted a poster advertising a steak meal and a glass of wine of beer for £10.95 at The Forresters. Thinking it might be crowded and noisy we tried it any way and it was excellent. We were directed upstairs from the bar to the restaurant and told we would have to wait because two parties had just got in before us. In fact we've had to wait longer elsewhere without an apology. The food when it came was excellent - steak, onion rings, salad and lovely fat chips (but not greasy). My wife had a good sized glass of white and I had a pint of Bellhaven's Best bitter. Really good value - the same elsewhere in Jedburgh the night before cost us £17.95 for an equally good if not slightly inferior steak and about £3 for the beer/wine! The restaurant is small but comfortable and we would definitely go back. The waitress apologized for the table being laid without steak knives and fetched some for us without us asking. She also said if the steak was not done to our satisfaction they would send it back to the kitchen! A jug of water was also provided on request for no charge.

This meal was booked day after a meal in Belters Bar that is in same building. This was a tapas meal. We didn't expect to find tapas in Jedburgh but the family who run the place had recently returned from a lengthy residency in Spain. The food was brilliant all hand made and prepared fresh per order. We couldn't fault it and the price put other tapas places to shame. If we ever go to Jedburgh again we will certainly be going to The Forresters again.

Wonderful authentic Tapas + some Scottish versions make up a wide choice menu. 4 tapas for £12.50 plus a special discount of 10% on all food and drink after 6pm made it a real bargain. Excellent well chosen range of Spanish wines at good prices.
