Limited choice of food on the menu, no kids menu and and no premium lagers on draft. Pub / restaurant lacked atmosphere. Not sure why it’s rated no 1 in Kelso, which is why we went. There are better places to go.

Staff very friendly and advised on menu choice. Food cooked to order fresh and hot. Good sized portions. Would recommend the Cullen skink and mixed bbq platter. Lovely relaxed welcoming pub.

Very good selection of food for take out. Flavour and temperature of the food was as expected! The use of vegiware packaging was 10/10 would definitely revisit for take out because of this. The fish and chips was slightly greasy but the burgers were lovely.
