The Tipsy Ghillie


Newly opened …. The Tipsy Ghillie is a multi-faceted hospitality business offering a range of services for those looking for some lovingly prepared food and drinks.

Boasting an all day café space open from 9am serving brunch & lunch dishes, as well as home-made scones & cakes. We serve fantastic barista grade small batch coffee and the café is fully licensed, as is served from the fully stocked Ghillie bar at the rear of the premise.

5 evenings a week the café space then becomes a relaxed candlelit Wine focused Bistro serving a selection of freshly made small plates & platters & daily a la carte specials which are perfect for sharing and nibbling with friends & family.

The Ghillie bar is our modernised version of this traditional pub which looks out at Kelso Abbey to the rear of the building open daily from 11am with a fresh new look, relaxed vibe, a great selection of beers, spirits, wines and a fantastic cocktail list. Food from the café can be served in the bar also.

With Live music almost every weekend as well as a monthly Sunday afternoon open mic, a weekly pub quiz, a monthly charity bake-off amongst many other events. We can host & cater for private parties and events.

We also host regular wine / gin / whisky tastings… or simply pick up a bottle of wine to go from our impressive retail priced selection of quality bottlings from artisan producers.

Come check us out soon, we can’t wait to see you!!
