Stopped off for a coffee last Saturday and decided to try some of their home baking. I had the best cheese scone ever! My wife had a treacle scone and thought it was very good too. Only criticism is that the butter kept chilled and is too hard to spread on the soft scone. We will be back again soon.

I've visited Quinn's numerous times but I feel that lately it is quite overpriced for food that is simply 'OK'. The staff are pleasant enough but do what they have to do without chitchat, except for Matthew who has always been great. Definitely not my first choice for dinner.

From the warm welcome when we arrived to the moment we left, Quins impressed. We enjoyed good food and excellent service and it was clear that many of our fellow diners were local regulars- usually a good sign!

Visited for the second time, this time with our grandchildren. Lovely warm welcome. Very friendly staff. Lovely male waiter who really engaged with our grandchildren( smelly sock ice-cream!!) who loved it! Good service and good food. Will definitely visit again. Great place to eat on a day out on the Borders railway to Galashiels.

I have had some poor experiences trying to find a good place to eat in Galashiels. This Bistro type restaurant is really very good and has an extensive Gluten Free menu. The staff are very friendly and extremely efficient. The food was of a high quality. My two companions had fish which they said was very fresh and cooked well.... More

Myself and a group of friends visited Quinn's yesterday the food was nice and tasty and we all enjoyed what we had but the service wasn't the best we waited a while for drinks and the food menus and it wasn't because it was busy as there was just us and another couple of tables. I would try Quinn's again... More

We visited Quins today while in town. The waiter didn't seem to want to be there. The food was standard for a rather high price. The vegetable lasagne was cooked/reheated so much that there was no sauce and the top was like cardboard. The portion sizes weren't worth the prices in my opinion.
