This “very bright white” (in a cool way) indie, in the Borders, was opened in 2015 by New Yorker Kyle Tidd and his chef-husband Hamish Carruthers; the monthly changing seasonal small plates are “highly regarded in Scottish media” (not least The Scotsman, who gave it a rave 2022 review), and all reports this year rate results as good or very good.

“A top find with delicious food and great service” – ex-New Yorker Kyle Tidd and his husband, chef Hamish Carruthers run this elegant restaurant in the Borders, focused on seasonal small plates. In August 2022, The Scotsman’s Catriona Thomson paid it a visit and was wowed: “calm… understated elegance… extensive and impressive wine list… even the most demanding diva… would not be able to fault the service or the delicious food”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
