Friendly staff could not do enough to make us welcome. Lovely surroundings and fantastic food although this time we only had cake and coffee. I can't recommend this place highly enough it always lives up to our expectations.

You must try the (dark) hot chocolate drink. It's absolutely superb. IMHO the best I have ever tasted.

This is a great place, whether you want coffee and cakes, a light lunch or a full 3 course meal. There is a deli at the front with some tables and through at the back it opens into a proper restaurant with views of the river. We have always found the food to be good but more impressively they are... More

We've had some lovely lunches at Coltman's but I was disappointed today. I chose the poached eggs with Ayrshire bacon on muffins with hollandaise sauce. Having asked for the bacon to be well cooked there was white fat which had to be cut off, the eggs were not runny and the muffins were soggy with water. As I run a... More

My husband and I booked Coltmans a week in advance for our anniversary and wish we hadn't. Upon arrival we had to wait quite a while for our order to be taken. Had to ask for water for the table. We were Then told the starter and main my husband had chosen had run out. The chef offered my husband... More

Found this purely by accident and it is exactly my kind of restaurant. Walk through the deli to the back and the building opens into a contemporary relaxed restaurant/bistro. Service was quick and discreet and the price exactly what i would expect to pay in a 21st century restaurant. Would visit again if visiting Peebles again.

We sat through the back which was very pleasant and comfortable with good views over the river. The waiter who served us had only started that week and was extremely helpful and a very good waiter who plainly knew his stuff. The food was pretty good too. We would come back again, perhaps for dinner this time.

Lovely little restaurant. First tried café about a year ago for coffee and discovered that evening meals are served Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Decided we would book for a meal on our next visit to Peebles. Would recommend booking. Nice food. Slightly more expensive that other restaurants of this size e but don't mind paying a little extra because we... More

Read the reviews. Headed for breakfast on our way north. It did not disappoint. The eggs Benedict were fantastic. The egg was extremely fresh and the hollandaise sauce was light and nicely balanced. Would recommend a visit for brunch.
