Large hotel on main square in a very pleasant town, the bar carries several Real Ales from Scottish and North East England micros, all in good condition on our visits. There is a nice little bottle shop in the vestibule area, I was given plenty of time to sort out the beers I needed, lots of patience was shown. Well worth a visit if in town. Re Rate for Sept ’13 - The Bottle shop has now gone unfortunately, but the bar remains the best in Melrose in my opinion. There is a good range of well kept beers and free wifi.
