Holder of the Scottish Borders Eating Out Awards’ ‘Best Newcomer 2008’ and ‘Best Informal Lunch 2008’ accolades, Marmions is one of the Scottish Borders’ favourite places to eat, drink and relax – open for breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply for coffee. This charming brasserie is child friendly and well supported by both the local community and visitors to the area. A warm welcome awaits you when you step through the door, the owners, Chris and Nicola Kurt, and their staff strive to make your visit both a satisfying and a happy one, and the pride they take in their food and service shines through.

The evening à la carte menu offers a refreshingly unfussy selection of modern European dishes, inspired by local produce and flavours. Crab cakes served with cucumber and mint raita provides a light, fresh starter, while the seared pigeon breast with red onion, haggis and cumberland sauce is a rich in flavour and texture. Simple combinations enhance quality flavours on the main course menu. Baked fillet of cod sits aside sweet chilli tiger prawns served with new potatoes and rocket salad; while venison steak is partnered with a wild mushroom duxelle served with creamed parsnips and a redcurrant jus. Also no Scottish menu would be complete without steak, and Marmions offers you a 10oz sirloin, chargrilled and served with onion, mushroom, tomato and chunky chips. If you find you still have room try the sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream or, if your tooth isn’t so sweet, try the selection of Scottish cheeses served with oatcakes.

Marmions is open from 9am for breakfast with coffees served all day. Lunch is served between 12 noon and 0.00pm with a mouthwatering choice of open sandwiches and ciabattas, baked potatoes and a seasonal 3 course menu. See the menu section for samples of all the Marmions menus on offer throughout the day and make your reservation soon to experience the wonderful local flavours for yourself.
