Cricket Club Launches Hospital Café


At the end of October, Borders General Hospital welcomed a new venture from the Melrose Cricket Club – The Cricket Café. The café was launched just beside the hospital, intended to be used patients, staff and passers-by.

The enterprise came as a result of talks to refurbish the MCC clubhouse, adding a catered kitchen and redecorating.

Since its opening in late October, the café has been a huge hit! Locals took to Facebook to rave about everything from the quality of food to the atmosphere or the specially sourced coffee.

The café offers teas, coffees, a range of healthy meals as well as bacon rolls and scones. They are currently even serving Christmas lunch with one Facebook review saying ‘suberb choice of food and welcoming staff”.

The café is open from Monday to Friday, 7am to 4.30pm.
