Cobbles has a really imaginative menu, better than most pubs . It also has an excellent range of beers.
I really love visiting this place!

I had booked on Opentable which was in my favor, as the restaurant is small, and I would not have had a table that evening had I not done so.
I chose the Salmon for dinner, which might very well have been the best tasting Salmon that I have ever eaten. The prices were quite reasonable for the amount of food that we received. We enjoyed the experience so much that we went back a second night for dinner.

Latest of several visits; good food, good beer (Tempest craft brewery), and Kelso is a good place to visit.

Fabulous meal, and the service is outstanding. Such a warm, friendly atmosphere. There is enough noise to create a relaxing ambience without having to shout to eachother. The food is phenomenal, with a great and creative choice for vegetarians. Wholeheartedly recommend this place of you're in the area.

As always a good impressive meal once again. Partner had whitebait to start with and loved. Then both stakes, with two bottle of wine I would say stick to the bar as the wine was a little pricey although absolutely lovely

This was about the 4th or 5th time we've been to this area for holiday and after finding The Cobbles on the first trip we always come back. The food is superb, the staff brilliant, the local beer/larger is well worth trying, to put it simply there isn't anything to fault. We mentioned to our landlady we'd booked/eaten here and said we'd never been disappointed, to which she replied the only disappointment you get at the Cobbles is not being able to get a table if they are fully booked. Can't compliment a place much more than that. We have no hesitation at all in recommending eating here.

We've eaten at The Cobbles regularly and have never had a bad experience. The staff are unfailingly friendly and professional. It's always busy because it's so popular, therefore booking is advisable, even midweek. (The new online booking system is very easy to use) There's a good choice of freshly cooked food on the menu, and as non-meat eaters we never struggle to select something. We appreciate that there's more than one veggie option, as so many establishments only offer one token vegetarian main course.
As routine, a carafe of water and delicious homemade bread are presented on being seated at your table - a lovely touch.
The Cobbles is a shining example that many restaurants should emulate. We look forward to our next visit!

We ate at 6pm which made the early evening menu available. This is outstanding value for money and we both enjoyed our meals greatly. The tempest beer is also always a highlight. Both servers were polite, helpful and knowledgable. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

Cibo molto buono e abbondante: ottima la moussaka e il classico fish and chips, così come il tortino al cioccolato.
Personale molto gentile; ci hanno servito senza problemi anche se siamo arrivati in ritardo e al limite della chiusura della cucina.

Great wee regular pub with super food and excellent service.
Only problem was the very uncomfortable seat (the chair) at the middle small table. The front edge dug in to my legs all the time. I think it needs more stuffing in the centre!
Nevertheless, a great place!

Excellent as always. A day trip to Kelso is one of the highlights of our year, not least because of the chance to have lunch at the Cobblers. Great food, great beer and great service.

I have never been to somewhere where they only allow you a 2 hour slot at a table. The food was nice and the service was quick but almost to the point like you were being rushed out and didn't have time to eat 3 courses because you were constrained to your slot.

Staff and welcome were great. Food innovative. I found it a little rich.
Unfortunately the noise level was such that my husband ( hard of hearing) found it very difficult and we could not converse over the meal.

Really friendly welcome and excellent service. This is an informal gastropub/bistro with an interesting menu (battered samphire as a starter). I had a lamb baguette with salad and fries all of which was tasty but there wasn’t a lot of lamb. Good choice of beer and wine.

My children fell in love with the burger after demolishing it and have no decided that this is the only place to eat in Kelso.

Waitress was attentive without being overbearing and the whole meal was just really good. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
