We dined here three times during our week's stay in Kelso - twice as a couple and once with friends. This in itself tells you what we think of the Cobbles. It is the best restaurant in the town and has a pleasant pub ambience with separate dining area. The service is good and the food is great. We would... More

First of all I will say had I read the reviews before I went and seen that every time someone makes a criticism the manager makes saucy comments back, I would not have gone there. Everyone is entitled to say how they found a place. We were staying local and it was recommended to us. Six in our party, one... More

Dear Mr Hayden, May I apologise for the experience that you had with us and say that I am truly sorry for the way that I dealt with your complaint. I should have taken the drinks off your bill without you having to ask and feel disappointed in myself for you having to ask. A thorough investigation is ongoing with... More

Having lived in Kelso for a few years and now moving away, The Cobbles is one thing I will really miss! I have eaten here probably 10 times or so in 3 years both lunchtime and dinners and can recommend particularly the Chicken and Bacon or Pork Bagels at Lunchtime; the fantastic Hardiesmill steaks and the coffee! If the soup... More

A really civilised pub with dining: local beer and ingredients served well, by staff that are friendly, and helpful but not intrusive. Would definitely recommend

Lovely little pub , not terribly but cosy , lovely restaurant again not terribly big but lovely décor. Service was very good nice young chap and young girl served us. The food was really great . The Cajun... More

Given the reviews I was a wee bit disappointed to be honest. Service was great, restaurant is pleasant and clean, but overall I think the main courses are £2 - £3 overpriced and I found the beer battered haddock and chips a bit heavy (just a bit too oily ). To be fair the kids meal for my daughter was... More

Popped in by chance and so glad we did. A real ale drinkers pub and a wide menu and specials board full of inviting meals which made it so difficult to select just one. Unfortunately we were only passing through otherwise I would of gone back every night of our hols. I had the haggis to start followed by the... More

Found this little gem by accident and we were able to secure a table without booking - bonus, probably best to book beforehand though as it soon became full. Some amazing real ales that the bar tender was more than happy to explain about and such a vast selection of superb food to match all tastes. Go there hungry is... More

Lovely food, friendly and efficient service. If I had one quibble it would be that portions were so large I had no room for anything else!
