The dishes you need to try at The Tweedside Hotel
The next time you find yourself hungry in Innerleithen, you need to check out these dishes you need to try at The Tweedside Hotel. The Tweedside Hotel, also known as The Middle Pub is one of my absolute favourite places to eat in Innerleithen. The menu is so creative and diverse and the owner Tina will always go out her way to make you something you like, even if that is not always on the menu.
The place has a real family feel, and that shows in their cooking. It is like enjoying a home-cooked meal from your Mum. So delicious and fresh.
The steak ciabatta
If you like steak then you are going to love this steak ciabatta. Steak is great on its own, but in a soft and delicious bread sandwich? Winner. It is topped with fried onions to add a burst of flavour. The steak ciabatta has a side of fresh salad and homemade coleslaw.
If you have tried coleslaw before from the store, then you need to try it home made. This is the best home made coleslaw I have ever tried.
The toastie is a British favourite. There is nothing like melted cheese between two warm piece of bread. The Tweedside Hotels toastie is delicious. You can pick from a number of winning combinations but I suggest including cheese.
The bread is well toasted and nice and crispy, but not too hard. The cheese is melted to perfection and strings out into threads that wrap around you chin if you don’t catch them quickly enough! Just how I love it.
So Tina has managed to put a Scottish twist on the Mexican favourite of nachos. Very fitting for a lovely hotel located in the heart of The Scottish Borders.
You can order regular nachos is haggis isn’t your thing. Win-win.
Now I know you all have heard the rumours of where haggis comes from, so do not freak out with the name of this dish! It is not what you are thinking. These ‘balls’ are made from regular haggis and served with a dish of sweet chili. Another twist to make a dish truly Scottish.
The Burger Challenge burger
If you haven’t heard of The Burger Challenge yet then read up! You are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to earn yourself a delicious free lunch and a place on The Tweedside Hotels wall of fame.
Don’t take this challenge lightly, however, this burger is a beast!
These are some of the cool dishes The Tweedside Hotel has to offer. I wanted to explain these dishes because I love how Tina has made such a great combination of dishes which really show their Scottish flair. You can really enjoy more traditional meals here too though, some of the best food I have eaten here are their spicy chips and macaroni cheese.
