The Sun Inn
'A former AA Pub of the Year for Scotland, this family-run gastro pub with boutique rooms continues to impress,' says Jackie. 'Lunch might start with queenie scallops, followed by Borders lamb's liver. At dinner: pig's cheek slow braised with black pudding, apple purée and crisp Parma ham, and venison with haggis and turnip fondant.'
