We recently visited Coltmans on a chilly day and although they were extremely busy managed to accommodate us. As always the service was good and the food excellent. The food is locally sourced and seasonal great presentation and tastes. We will return.

Wow coltman's was so delicious we had lunch there two days running. The food was so fresh and tasty and great variety to choose from . And we can't forget about the staff either. Every member of staff that we encountered was so genuinely polite and nothing was any trouble. Truly wonderful experience and highly recommend

Having researched Coltman's before our visit we were not disappointed. Calling in for an early lunch on a chilly day we took a table in the back of the building with a real fire and excellent views of the river Tweed, quite delightful!

The wonderful smells, the beautiful array of delicious looking choices even before we tasted a thing, were delightful. We knew that we were in for a treat, and a treat it most definately was. Don't be tempted by anything else on the high street save your taste buds for Coltman's and you won't be disappointed.

My Mum and I ate here the evening after a disappointing meal at the Tontine a few doors down. What a different experience! We were made to feel so welcome from beginning to end. Our food (monkfish with oxtail followed by creme brûlée) was superb. I wish more restaurants would serve half bottles of champagne - just enough for two... More

It's a busy wee restaurant at lunch time and quite noisy due to decor and flooring however does not detract from food which is really good. Lots of options from deli as well as set menu. I had a flan with salad combo which was just enough food for me but others had risotto and cod from set menu. Other... More

Visited on our cycle for coffee. Delicious food and very good service. Gluten-free fresh baking is limited to meringues, but they are delicious. They do keep other wrapped gluten-free options, but I prefer fresh baking.

Very nice coffee and tea. Pleasant cafe deli. Well worth a try. Friendly staff. Popular with locals for breakfast. They were enjoying a late brekkie and seemed to like them.

We enjoyed a delicious meal for two in the restaurant on Saturday evening. Good flavours, great value, friendly understated service. The set menu offers 2 or 3 courses plus bread and an amuse bouche.

Thank Alice C
