Review on The Lodge at Carfraemill

Carfraemill has been dishing out sustenance for hundreds of years, but started to really take off during the 1930s as hordes of travellers and tourists use the place as a refuelling point on the old Edinburgh to Newcastle road. Current owners Jim and Jo Sutherland have hospitality and farming in their blood and are continuing the tradition in this all-purpose, all-day venue.

Informal breakfasts, light meals and a kids' menu are always available in the wood-panelled Jo's Kitchen, which turns out plates of smoked salmon, hearty roasts, mince and dumplings, battered haddock and steaks for the famished crowds.

From 5.00pm, the main Scottish Borders Bistro kicks in, with a more ambitious repertoire that might run from pigeon breast on Puy lentils with sherry sauce, via smoked haddock stuffed with black pudding or slow-braised organic lamb shank with minted pea mash and caramelised shallots, to warm raspberry and almond tart.
