My favorite place to eat in Peebles. Great food and friendly staff. Always a good selection of vegetarian options available. Loving the new salads too.

Had a lovely dinner with friends on Saturday night. Excellent menu (I'm not vegetarian but perhaps an extra option as only one on starter and main course) Very friendly service excellent meal and we all left very happy. The vegetarian meal was fabulous! Thanks

I've been to Coltman's many times - as I'm keen to continue to support local businesses rather than the newly-arrived chains - and it rarely disappoints. However, on this occasion the experience was poor. This is no reflection on the waitresses who, as always were friendly and efficient. I returned a sausage roll as it had been under-heated and when... More

A good night. Started with drinks up stairs while the first lot of dinners finished. Choice of 3 dishes per course. All very good although far too much quantity with the turkey and trimmings. Reasonable wines and a cocktail with the meal. All in fir £50. Staff had to work hard as there were lots of us. Would return again.

After looking for somewhere to eat in Peebles as not from the area, Coltmans was recommended by some friends.....this place is well worth a visit. The food and service was fantastic and great value for money. Make sure the next time you are in Peebles you pay this place a visit.

Was okay but a bit expensive for what it was. Nice service and lovely and warm log burning room on a cold day. If you like the goats cheese on walnut toast type food then try this place. Alternatively, good, filling, down to earth food is to be found at the Crown hotel across the road.

Absolutely shocking service and so rude. We walked in for coffee and cakes to be met by an extremely rude waitress who asked what we wanted. After I'd said a table for two we were told we could only have coffee and to wait there! I wanted to walk out straight away but my partner insisted we wait to explain... More

This restaurant is nicely laid out and tastefully decorated with friendly staff. It is less pretentious the I have found it in the past. I ordered Ravioli from the board but as I can't eat cream ,they offered to prepare a variation . My husband ordered a squash salad. While my meal tasted very good, I was disappointed in the... More
