It was ok. Wasn't the best lunch I've ever had. My friend ordered a mozzarella and tomato panini and was very disappointed by the quality of the mozzarella. My jacket potato wasn't quite cooked through. Probably won't return.

We called in for a light lunch and ordered soup and a sandwich. There were only a few people in but we were advised the food might take 15 - 20 minutes as "there are a lot of orders in". We gathered eventually this is because the same kitchen services the main business, the White Swan Hotel. But we chose... More

Good coffee shop just off main square in Kelso. Nicely laid out with some sofas and various table sizes. Limited menu but actually I think this is some times the best to cut down on options and focus on the food. My Dad was heard to say it was the best Bakewell he had had in a long time and... More

After a walk around the Abbey and the town centre we went to the coffee house for coffee and cakes. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. The food and drinks were very acceptable. The environment looked a little tired but, overall, the experience was positive. Very handily placed for the Abbey and the main car park.

Went through the door and the feeling in the place was great. It was warm and welcoming. We had a cherry scone, cheese and ham paninis and coffee. We would definitely recommend the cheese and ham paninis. The scone was warm and squidgy, delicious.

Popped in here for a quick coffee. Coffee fine but service ridiculously slow. It took 20 mins for a straightforward latte to arrive after ordering. It wasn't busy!

Kelso is a very attractive, quaint-looking town and today I got to wander the streets aimlessly for a few hours while my car was being repaired. As I strolled through the cobbled streets I ventured into The White Swan Coffee House overlooking the square being attracted by the "Free Wifi" sign. The staff were friendly and I was quickly served... More

After a lovely walk along the River Tweed and a wander around the town on a beautiful winters day a good coffee and cake was most welcome. The cafe is basic but the staff were friendly and welcoming and the coffee and Bakewell Tart were lovely. .
