Freshness and quality are an important feature in the Peebles Hydro, so the team of chefs work hard to include the best local produce and seasonal ingredients. That’s why you’ll find the menus change regularly.
And great service too,
When it comes to making you feel welcome, they really do try that little bit harder. So of you don’t see anything you’d like on the menu – or simply want to tweak a dish – they will get creative. Just ask.

The Dining Room

With fantastic views over the Tweed, the Dining Room really enjoys one of the most beautiful settings for a restaurant in the Scottish Borders. The restaurant offers classic Scottish dishes, with a menu that changes daily.

It’s open for breakfast and dinner, seven days a week.

The dining room opens at 6pm for High Tea for children aged up to 12 , so you can choose to eat with the kids. Or if you’d like a romantic dinner for two a little later, the kids can enjoy the kids club from 7.30pm.

The Cocktail Bar

With candlelit tables, the Cocktail Bar is ideal for a relaxing drink before, and after, your meal. The bar stocks a wide range of Scottish malts whiskies, and bar nibbles if you’re feeling a little peckish.

Lounge areas

The hotel has two welcoming lounges where you can relax and enjoy our all day menu packed with delicious drinks, sandwiches and cakes. Or if you’re after a traditional Afternoon Tea then we have an array of choices awaiting you. Both are at the front of the hotel, so offer the famous Peebles Hydro views over the Tweed valley.
