This is a comfortable, intimate pub with good food and heart-warming service. I cannot believe that I have lived in the area for 65 years and never visited this place before. I will be going back

Cosy atmosphere and steak cooked to perfection. Catered for a party of 5 and service was impeccable. Recommended by our host at the Old Priory B&B. Great wee place Kelso enhanced by our B&B and this great restaurant.

The food and service was excellent every time we have visited. We have been coming to the Borders for several years and have been enjoying several eating establishments, Cobbles being one of our favorites. Their Onion rings are fantastic.
