    The Indian Restaurant on the main street has been most acceptable, but then it’s a few years since I’ve been.

    Osso restaurant just up the road from the Tontine. Not the cheapest but beautiful food

    I had a great meal at the Sunflower a while back. It’s v small, so best to book.

    this is a joke right? That place is the worst restaurant, of any kind I’ve ever been to.

    On the plus side there’s a strava segment down the stairs to the toilets. Take your DH bike

    Hhhmmmm this seams familiar, did you post about a bad experience there in another thread recently? The Indian has always been good for me, they even have patience for any occasional drunks that walk in looking for a kebab ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The Italian place on the bridge was good when we went, reasonably priced from memory too.

    Just stay off the pish they pass off as lager such as Tennant’s, McEwan’s…It’s vile.

    There was a thread 6 months or so ago which mentioned the indian. May or may not have ommented, cant remember.

    IME, that indian is expensive and the food ain’t great.

    Try the chip shop in the high street – they offered to deep-fry a pie for me – class.

    +1. There has got to be a better option.

    The chippie round the corner from the High Street does a good sit in fish tea.

    +1 on eating at the Tontine tbh, the food’s really good in there.

    Food in the Tontine is good, try the Bistro.

    Agree with comments about the Indian, never had a good meal there out of 3 – 4 visits + expensive. That said it could have changed as havn’t been for years.

    Chip shop as above deep fry most things. Italian is small and can be hard to get a table but the food is ok.

    Staying at the Tontine and wondered if folks could recommend somewhere to eat out based on prior experience?

    The chippo in Innerleithen offered to do us deep-fried porridge for breakfast when we were last in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    +1 for the chippy round the corner. Excellent.

    As a proper local Osso is way above anywhere else in the town. It isnt as expensive as it might seem either, unlike the prince which can be eyewateringly expensive.
    The restaurant at Kailzie gardens is brilliant too, its only open one night a month but that is tomorrow if you are here now.
    They both have Michelin awards.
    Not bad really 2 Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurants in a town of only 10,000 people, only another 1 in Scotland.

    Amazing differences of opinion but I guess thats what we come back for. One mans meat is another mans poison and all that

    For what it’s worth, which I guess isn’t much, in my opinion the Indian was dreadful as was the little Italian by the bridge. Both serving food you’d be embarressed to!! I’d agree with those biging up the Tontine itself for food and that chippy was actually ok!! But as I said above Osso is absolutely beautiful. Been a few times and although I said above its not the cheapest, the quality of both the food, drinks and service represents excellent value

    Italian …Francos?

    Sunflower is ace.

    The last time I went, the Italian by the bridge wasn’t up to much.

    In terms of Indian, the takeaway on Northgate (Shukria) is much better than the Prince of India on the high street. But the best bet by far is to go to Saffron in Innerleithen – it’s quite small so you may want to book, but it’s really good.

    Bonneys Steak house by Glentress centre, best steak I’ve ever had. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just got back from a 2 day event there with work and it was great again. Thurs – Monday night he’s open.

    I’ve lived here pretty much all my life so here is the definitive list on how to eat in Peebles:

    1) Osso
    2) Kailzie
    3) Bonys
    4) Coltmans
    5) Mandarin Gardens
    6) Bag of Wotsits and a can of coke on a bench on Tweed Green

    Everywhere else is pretty sh*t to be honest

    Tried Coltman’s when we were in Peebles a couple of weeks ago. VERY good ‘bistro’ style food.

    Used Francos for eating in and take away on holiday last year. It was ok. Not brilliant but good enough and suited a family dinner well enough. I wouldn’t give it a must visit recommendation but if you’re there for a week and want to eat out in different places it’s a decent enough place
