We researched coffee stops in Kelso prior to cycling from Berwick to Innerleithen, and chose Hoot n Cat. We weren't disappointed! Comfortable and warm, with great hospitality and a good selection of cakes (the lunch menu looked good too), it provided welcome respite from the westerly wind. Thank you!

My hubby took me for a lunch today and we have really enjoyed it at Hoot 'n' Cat. It is great cosy place for a quick meal. I had brie & cranberry ciabata and my hubby had coronation chicken wrap - both were fresh and tasty, with lots of fresh salad and coleslaw. Our lunch came within minutes! There was... More

There was a nice warm welcome and plenty of comfortable seats to choose from. The waitress gave us plenty of time to make our choices and was very attentive. The establishment does main... More

We go to the Hoot n' Cat at least once a week as the food is always excellent and the service we receive is spot on. The waitresses always smile and the free coffee top up is appreciated.

This place is one that must be visited, it is lovely to dine in so relaxing, the food caters for all, staff are most helpful. would certainly recommend this to everyone. It is only a short walk from the centre of Kelso and it is near to the Garden centre

If your visiting Kelso then you won't go wrong by visiting the Hoot'n Cat tucked beside the Abbey car park. The staff are friendly, the food is pleasingly served and there is a buzz in the place. The seating ranges from sofas to hard back chairs. The sofas are often booked and busy with regulars, but they are not just... More
