“Confused our order - but good when it arrived”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Dropped in for a Monday lunch, when the bar and restaurant were surprisingly (but pleasantly) busy. Just had main courses, one of which was wrong when it arrived but replaced with many apologies. Both the salmon with interesting heritage potatoes and the belly pork with dauphinoise were very good and also fairly priced. We'll be back.

We ate here on a Saturday night, and would recommend booking. The food and atmosphere were perfect, with great beer as well.

“Good Food And Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

The Cobbles has super friendly staff serving excellent food. We were down in kelso for the weekend and had dinner here on the friday night. If you like some entertainment after your meal then the cobbles is where you should be!! The kelso folk club come in and entertain you. We
were so lucky as around 8 or 9 men and women turned up on the night with all sorts of instruments and had the place rocking!! There are no set rules as you don't know who or how many will turn up on the night. We had a superb time. A special mention to Agnieszka & Craig who looked after us in the restaurant.

“Vegetarian options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Just returned from lovely meal, quick service even though restaurant area downstairs was full. (Sat eve). My comment (again) is very limited vegetarian options, all spicy. Curry or spicy bean burger or onion tart! Staff very accomodating kids colouring books etc. Shame about limited menu choice for veggies.
