Good quality food

Visited here for dinner on 11 April. The quality of the food was excellent, as was the Malbec wine, although many of the wines were quite pricey. The service was also very prompt with little time to wait between courses, and quite a good choice on the menu.

Myself and a friend decided to have morning coffee here a few weeks ago. We started to make our way to an obviously empty table when the waitress said in a most unfriendly tone "I will tell you where to sit". We then patiently waited to be shown to the exact table we were making our own way to! We... More

Had a very mixed experience. We arrived in walking gear and immediately felt a bit out of place. We all sensed an aloofness from our waitress especially when we ordered soup and sandwich.. The food however was excellent- the price on the high side but you are getting quality. You could sense quality in the cloth napkins , the glasses... More

My friend and I went for lunch today (Sat) and downstairs (restaurant) was full and they asked if we wanted to eat in the bar upstairs. I would suggest booking if you want to eat here on a Saturday, which we will do next time. The bar was decorated lovely and peaceful but the only thing is, the tables are... More

We had a lovely meal in Coltmans, beginning with a very nice drink in the little cocktail bar upstairs :-) The food was delicious and excellent value for mony but it was the service hat made it stand out for us. We would highly recommend and would definately go back if ever in Peebles.

Following a truely awful brunch at a near by tea-shop (across the street avoid at all costs) where we served half cooked baguettes and terrible coffee - we found this diamond, and just had to go for a decent coffee. This is a shop/cafe/restarant run by a lovely friendly couple who were so welcoming. If you want anything from outstanding... More

In the words of Gordon Ramsey... Wow!!! Stopped in this little gem for lunch, thankfully they had more seats through the rear of the property as I'm so glad we didn't miss out. The food was absolutely first class, well worth a visit if you find yourself in Peebles!

3 years ago my partner and I visited Peebles on a hotel deal. We chanced upon coltmans on this trip and couldn't resist the tempting deli counter, we wound up staying for lunch and have since visited twice a year just to stuff our faces, the food has never been anything less than perfect, and an evening in the resteraunt...

Visited on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Not a huge menu, but the food was lovely and the staff were friendly. Would definitely visit again.
