Traquair Arms Hotel, Innerleithan – November 2008

Located just of the main street of Innerleithan on Traquair Road, the Traquair Arms looked a cosy haven in the mist. The bar was busy and a HUGE fire warmed our cockles!

We had a traquair ale (£2.80) and a gin and tonic (£3.35!!), to start Smoked Salmon fishcake (£4.95) for me and cullen skink for him. Could’ve done with some more (any!) seasoning, good amount of potato and fish although a little bland the size of portion was a little small too (two fishcakes and a very small salad. The cullen skink (£4.25) was tasty although no lumps of fish or potato to give it that home made taste.

Mains were Steak and Traquair Ale pie (£9.25) with baby potatoes and mixed veg. Lovely pastry and nice steak too. Tatties couldve done with a little more cooking and a little less cooking in the veg! Sika Casserole (£8.85) was tasty too although wasn’t presented very well.

A deuchars (£2.80) and another expensive gin to end. £39.70 in total which was not too bad as we were full to the brim and couldn’t face pudding – they did look nice.
