I forget to mention that when ever we head for the Scottish Borders we never take any meat as we always call in past a couple of Butchers en route and fantastic. First up is in Selkirk town centre opposite the Market place is Halliwells. His mint lamb burgers are so full of flavour, special sausages and three different types of chicken kebabs are very tasty on the barbie. Best of all for me being a pie eater is his chicken curry pies, i could eat them all day.
Next one is in Peebles itself on the High Street called Forsyths & Sons, there is also a cracking bakers next door as well. We normally spend a small fortune in here at least a couple of times each time we go up. You always have to queue but its worth waiting for. His Haggis cheese fritters slip down a treat not to mention his pork pies & lasagne pies. No mush wonder i have to ride my bike every day im up there to try and burn it all back off but theres nowt like that down in here in Durham.
If Tweedlove is over a school hol next year in 2014 we will defo be back up for more action. Fantastic festival of cycling events.
