The Cobbles – Freehouse and Dining


With character, atmosphere and an award-winning menu, The Cobbles is Kelso’s must-visit restaurant and gastropub. Whether you’re looking to meet friends over coffee, enjoy a relaxing gastro-pub lunch or celebrate with a special dining experience, we look forward to welcoming you. Tucked away in a quiet corner, just off Kelso’s town square, you will find The Cobbles; a modernised 19th century coaching inn.

The Cobbles has become a much talked about, award-winning eatery that offers some of the best gastro-pub and restaurant dining in Scotland. The Cobbles is the brewery tap for one of Scotland’s most progressive breweries, Tempest Brewing Co. Currently located in Kelso just a short distance along the road, Tempest is our craft brewery specialising in fresh craft beer. It was founded in 2010 by former head chef of the Cobbles, Gavin Meiklejohn. The brewery has gained recognition for its cutting edge approach to brewing and produces small batch-brewed beers full of depth and flavour. At the Cobbles, Tempest beers are available in cask, keg and bottle. For more information about Tempest beers, please visit their website

At The Cobbles, we have a tastefully refurbished upstairs function room, which is the perfect venue for private dining, small wedding receptions, anniversaries and business dinners for up to 35 guests. We also cater for funeral teas and other finger buffet style personal gatherings for up to 40 guests. During the busy summer months, the function room is used as a dining room. We advise contacting us in advance to discuss booking this lovely private dining space.
