    Had a family meal here during the festive period. The meal was absolutely amazing. My partner had a steak and said it was the best cooked steak he has had in a long time. Everything was very fresh and full of flavour. The staff were absolutely lovely and made our fur babies feel at home. Would highly recommend.

    Absolutely delicious food and very friendly service. Thanks for a lovely evening. The only negative was that the children's meal was very expensive at £12. We didn't realise you were going to charge for each course individually else we wouldn't have ordered 3 courses. Everywhere else we've been has a deal for kids meals.

    As a hotel ticks all my boxes - authentic, genuinely welcoming, smart room with character and a clear "we love our locals and our visitors" ethos. Big plus was was properly dog-friendly not just dog tolerant. Menu covers all the bases. I had venison from the gourmet end of the spectrum which, with mushrooms, an intense reduction, cauliflower & fondant potato was exceptional. All the better for being cooked very pink it was Scotland in autumn on a plate. Had I stayed another night I suspect I'm have been very happy with steaks & burgers too. Concise wine list very fairly priced & selection by the glass works well. Good to see local beers and spirits prominently part of the offer. Would (and will) return.

    The Buccleuch & Queendberry Arms Hotel provided good food with friendly and timely service. The portions were of a reasonable size although it was felt that the portion of venison was smaller than expected. Overall this was good value for money.
