On our first visit to Kelso the bar in the Black Swan really hit the spot. I suppose it was because it was a quiet night, pre-Covid, and the close banter in the bar was lovely. On this occasion, the pub was busier and, because you have to stay at tables, the close contact between punters was missing. The Black Swan is still a perfectly fine, ordinary boozer and the service was very good. I would suggest however that they need to get better glasses for half pints of lager. My pints were fine, but my wife’s half-pints were consistently dead.
Wanted somewhere in Kelso to stay overnight after attending the races. Booked B&B directly at an excellent price and paid £10pp deposit. Central location with parking directly outside or in parking area just across the road. (1) Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Above the pub, with separate entrance once you've booked in, if required. The (2) front bar is old style with sports tv, happy staff and welcoming customers. Going through to the (3) bar in the back is like going into another pub, but still the same applies to staff and customers. Music is from the free jukebox so everyone can choose their favourite from the massive selection. A very good pint and drinks selection available from both bars. The atmosphere was really great. Very busy being a Saturday night, a proper mix of young, old, locals and visitors all having a good craic, no problem getting a seat and bar service was fast. We had the best time! A good night's sleep and a lovely big breakfast was enjoyed by all of us. Thank you for your lovely hospitality and look forward to seeing you all again next year - if not before!…
Very good value,and clean and lovely bar with local people. In the centre of Kelsi. I wasn't impressed the available restaurants around, neither the Indian or the Chinese were open. We eventually had chips in the square. On the second night we had Chinese takeaway in the square.
Stayed with friends and was very disappointed by the Black Swan. The rooms have single glazing and face a busy cobbled street so avoid if you’re looking for a quiet place to sleep. The room I had was very dated and not clean, see the photos. The place smells of damp, the shower in my room only produced cold water and the bath drain was blocked. The bathroom decor was very old fashioned and in need of a revamp. There are many other places to stay in Kelso better than this.
Called here with friends and stayed a good while. Serves a good pint of Guinness and the played some pool. The staff were friendly and helpful.We didnt eat but the food looked good. A fine selection of crisps though. A proper pub as well as a hotel.
