Had a lovely lunch here yesterday. Food beautifully prepared, presented and very tasty. Staff very attentive. My only comment would be the music which was a bit too much in an otherwise relaxing setting. There were four of us and we all felt the same about the music. If the music was more relaxing, and playing a little more quietly in the background, then this would have been a 10 out 10 lunch 😉

After a long journey we met with friends for dinner at Provender. The 'meet and greet' on arrival was absolutely first class as indeed was the food and the service throughout our visit. We all thought the Provender team were outstanding in what they delivered in every respect. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and have noted for a return visit next time we are in Melrose. Well done to all concerned!

The food was absolutely delicious. The dessert selection could have had one or two more sweet options. Mark ( I think that was his name) was a great host and waiter, lovely lovely guy.

We love Provender. We try to go whenever we are visiting Melrose because the food and taste experience really is good. We prebooked online prior to us coming down. The first reception we got on walking through the door was ‘have you booked?’,no Hello, how are you etc. Thankfully we had. We were shown to our table and then left, no water, no menu,no drinks order etc. This was at 1.30pm Friday and the book festival was on however only about half the tables were occupied. Drinks order was taken, menus given and when the drinks were brought to the table we were asked if we were ready to order...err no. We had lovely food, 3 courses between us, Provender provided food wise customer service-no. There was a man with a grey beard who was lovely and a waitress started about the dessert time,young, blond hair in a pony tail who was welcoming and knowledgable about the food and made us feel happy about being there. The lady that spoke to us when we arrived and served tables, cleared up etc not so much, in the time we were there she seemed neither happy to be there or genuinely pleased to be around the customers. We felt awkward for a while in this restaurant, perhaps just a bad staff day, it was mentioned they were to be open all day for Friday and Saturday for the book festival and a happy genuine welcome would have gone so far into making it a welcome experience for us

We have visited Provender on several occasions and have always enjoyed excellent food and wonderful service. This time I had booked for my husband's birthday, so had requested a booth (rather than a table in the centre), but did not make any other requests. My husband was amazed and delighted when we were presented with a plate of delicious desserts, with 'Happy Birthday' piped in chocolate. It was a wonderful way to finish a memorable meal. Thank you!

Love the layout of Provender both in the restaurant and the comfortable seating in the lounge. Lovely ambiance! Excellent and very friendly service from all the staff who were serving us. Loved the fact that the drinks list included cocktails as well as wine and spirits.Nice variety of options on the menu. The fish was melt in the mouth excellent. Thanks to all at Provender for a great evening.
