“Good food, good value....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Good food, good choice and varied specials. Wine and drinks are not overpriced and served in a nice bistro atmosphere, with a small art gallery of local works downstairs...

Don't be misled by this review, the only (and I mean only) reason for a four instead of a five is that they don't serve real ale.

Closed Tuesday nights, but the other nights they take orders up until 10pm if you are a late eater....

“Top restaurant which is very popular with salmon fishers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Another fishing trip; another great meal at Oscar's.
Very good food; very good service and nice clean loo's!
Tremendous steaks and good house wine. The place is full of fishermen so you'll find plenty to talk to if you are up fishing yourself!

“Faultless, year after year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

We recently visited oscars as we have done each of the last four years as part of our work at the kelso ram sales. So good are the steaks that three visits on consecutive nights last week did not dampen my enthusiasm for this gem of an eaterie. In various company, all of whom know good food i have never heard any complaints the only problem is that the haggis starter and steaks are so good i have yet to venture any further down the menu!!! Food and drinks are reasonably priced with so many poorer outlets charging a lot more for poorer fayre it makes the experience all the better. Very friendly and efficient staff, both front of house and in the upstairs accessible kitchen will only be too happy to accommodate every request. I cannot praise this restaurant highly enough, my only complaint is that it is not nearer home!!! Keep up the great work all at Oscars!!!

“Best food in Kelso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Have been a number of times to this populat spot; just off the Market Place. Food is fantastic; mussels and the haggis parcels are well worth trying.
Very good service but you do need to book. Very popular with visting fisherman. Good plan is to have a few beersfirst round the corner in the Black or The White Swan!
