setting lovely, staff friendly but not overwhelming. Did not have any drink as we were driving but coffee after meal was nice. Food was great, hot and plenty. Would have been nice to have more of a choice for vegetarians but that is not uncommon. Would definitely go again.

Staff helpfully arranged lunch for party of 10 at short notice. Excellent service and food, accommodating beautifully, needs of vegan and gluten free diners in our party. 2 year old and young baby welcomed. Our American visitors were very impressed by the venue, and quality and presentation of food. Highly recommended.

Nice restaurant, great service. The crab and scallop starter was excellent, should be a available as a main! My only criticism would be the limited range of reasonably priced wines (< £30).

We enjoyed our first visit to Provender. We felt the menu was ‘safe’ and a little unambitious but the food quality was very good. Service was a bit starchy although the maitre d’ was very welcoming. We didn’t quite get the decor, a mix of styles, we didn’t like the plastic ivy, the industrial style chairs, or the high back seating in the booths. The ceiling looks like work in progress.

Thank you for getting tomato sauce for us and replenishing our tap water without us asking. A brilliant lunch with attentive but non intrusive service

Excellent food and service. Just the right level of attentiveness. Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Very hot on the day we visited but understand that fans are being installed to improve airflow. Looking forward to a return visit on our next trip to The Borders.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Provender. The two people who served us were very friendly and helpful. The food was quite innovative and the chef successfully put together some interesting flavours while still maintaining the integrity of individual ingredients. Well done all!

Enjoyed a nice relaxed Fathers Day lunch. Lovely feel about this restaurant, friendly faces and very customer focused, my grandchildren loved being there also, which is important on a family outing.

We were in a booth in the far corner and there was a speaker in it. The waiter kindly turned it down for us but we would have enjoyed our conversation even more without it being there at all. The booth has the effect of 'containing' the music. I would suggest moving the speaker so that it isn't in a booth (or not having music at all).

Contrary to some recent press reports we had an excellent meal on friday evening when they were very busy with the local Book Festival. In spite of that the service was attentive and quick, the menu interesting, the food delicious, the wines we had were very acceptable - and the price overall very reasonable. This latest Orde catering family project deserves to be recognized and to succeed..

A wonderful restaurant and a great addition to Melrose. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere and great food. We will definitely be back! (One tiny point - the chairs are not that comfortable...)

This was our first visit to Provender. We had not finished our starters and we were already talking about coming back! The food was the star of the "show" and we could not fault it. What a gourmet delight! The ambience and Provender team only added to an excellent culinary experience. We would highly recommend!!!

So glad you have arrived. i am new to the Borders and have been a bit disappointed that there are so few affordable good places to eat. Will be bringing more friends to dine. 10 out of 10 for everything especially the food.
