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.

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.

Really really lovely reaturant, food was exquisite.

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.

Fresh approach to old favorites. Great service. Central location. Varied menu with lots of healthy choices. Very comfortable and welcoming.
A place to go back to and to recommend to visitors. A lovely alternative to hotel dining.
Located in area of great interest and an easy walk.

Award winning beer beaten by the pie! It looked great when it arrived and the filling was top quality and beautifully seasoned: truly memorable. The homemade seafood parpadelle was creative and delightful, most restaurants would cut back on the expensive fish ingredients and bulk up on pasta the but not here, no wonder the place was full. The waitress was lovely, and the ambience upstairs was spot on. I have already recommended The Cobbles to friends.

As an ex pat Borderer who also lived in Kelso several years ago, I was already aware of the Cobbles and it’s longstanding high standards and delicious food, but since I left the area and moved to Yorkshire it has changed LOADS...and all for the better!
The lager my fiancé was drinking was brewed here and he loved it!
I was hugely impressed with the style of the interesting menu and the choices we all made were very well received as everything was perfect.
My choice of their healthy and tasty spin on haddock and chips with an pinhead oat crust was amazing and fabulous!
I can’t recommend the Cobbles any higher for ambiance and quality of the menu and food served.

We will return!
Thank you

We were recommended The Cobbles by our bnb hosts while we were visiting the area. We were not disappointed. Starters and mains were beautifully cooked and presented, so delicious and filling. Service was excellent and friendly and the decor and ambience relaxed.

I took mum and dad here for mothers day dinner, the service was great, the staff were friendly and helpful. Im a vegan and there were a couple of nice options on the menu to accommodate this. My dad had a pint of their Tempest brewery ale and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone enjoyed the food and the prices were very reasonable. I'll definitely come here again.

We were visiting Kelso for only a couple of days and booked in here for the first night's dinner, but we enjoyed it so much we went back the following night too!!

Really friendly staff, great food and good selection of wines and beers!

You'll definitely need to book if you're going at the weekend but it's absolutely worth planning in advance!

We were having a girlfriends' lunch, six of us. We were made VERY welcome on arrival, with nothing being too much bother.
The food was VERY good, with a wide range of menus. Wine was discussed and a delicious wine selected. My starter was unusual, a delicious mix of melon with dukkah and sorbet. Thought had been put into the menu, with some different flavours being put together - successfully!
Our changing from one menu to another was no trouble, and asking for changes to be made within a dish ( I've. Less of an ingredient) was no problem!
There was rushing of us at the end of our meal either, with the waiter being as charming at the end of our lunch as at the beginning.

As per the recommendation we received to have our meal here, the beer, staff and food were excellent.

The special of steak, with oyster, asparagus and fries was outstanding.

Will be back here next time we have a break in Kelso.
