The Townhouse, Melrose

This was our second visit to the Townhouse Hotel, a small hotel in an attractive town called Melrose, in the Scottish Borders.
Last time we visited it was summertime so this time it was nice to see the town all dressed up for winter, Christmas lights lighting up the high street and all the mountains covered in white snow.
I had goats cheese to start with as did Mr Lovable and it sitting on a bed of red onion marmalade, drizzled with balsamic dressing it was a perfect start for Sunday lunch.
My main course was pork fillet stuffed with chili and mozzarella, served with fettuccine. The pork was full of flavour but sauce had something missing, like the chef had just opened a tin of tomatoes and chucked it on a plate.
To finish off I couldn't decide from the very tempting dessert menu so I chose the 'Townhouse Assiette', combination of three small desserts, panna cotta, parfait and something lovely in a tall glass, all delicious and very beautifully presented. 
superb presentation

no fuss, friendly service
