Welcome to Buccleuch Arms, home to the Blue Coo Bistrot where they are passionate about local produce, knowledgable and skilled. After a superb breakfast – they are open to non residents from early morn – we could have talked all day about artisan producers and their mouth watering menus! Billy Hamilton is a fine host and pretty ace in the kitchen too! Gareth Gilder is his Head Chef of many years and his kitchen skills – and butchery – are awesome to behold. Buccleuch Arms also has a beautiful walled garden for al fresco dining.
The varied and tempting menus focus on local produce – always with great Border Beef and Game in pole position but also other options for those in need of them! The Blue Coo has a relaxed friendly atmosphere with personal service, from takeaways, Sunday Roasts to Curry Nights. Also available are a delicious range of condiments (pictured) available from Buccleuch Arms and from Hardiesmill Pop Up Farm Shop nearby.
They have lovely accommodation and Buccleuch Arms makes a great venue for weddings and celebrations too. St Boswells is a bonnie wee town with pretty traditional shops, set in glorious Border countryside with good communication links northwards to Edinburgh & over the border to England.
