An intimate dinner
Foodie couples should love the locally caught fish at Foxtons. It’s all about fresh, seasonal food here – with local suppliers given top billing. Fish, for example, comes from Eyemouth and Berwick. They do an amazing (no, really) sticky toffee pudding too.
A light lunch
Go retro with a fish supper eaten from the paper or in the café (if it’s raining). Castlegate Fish Restaurant is a proper old-fashioned fish and chip sit-down place. But sadly no pun in the name. Comfort food to warm the cockles (and haddock) of your heart. Pass the vinegar.
Borders lamb gets a middle-eastern makeover at Lazeez Grill House. If you’re feeling greedy then there’s only one option –the 8-dish hot and cold mezze with baba ganoush, hummus, falafel, wark inab and other tempting Middle Eastern faves. Wash it down with Arabic coffee and tea or Lebanese house wine.
