It’s not just the ales that are local: the furnishings are too. We’ve used upcycled materials from the March Street Mills to give you a sense of Peebles’ rich history in textiles. The pictures on the wall trace the old house back to its original owner Henry Ballantyne; brother of David Ballantyne, who established the Mills in 1884. Not only are the benches upholstered in tweed patchwork salvaged from the mills, but you’ll also spot some throwback keepsakes including a vintage sewing machine and a poster describing the Cotton Mills and Factories Act.
Oozing charm and upcycled character, the bar is the perfect place to get comfy, and catch-up with friends or family. If the weather’s good, head out to the garden (it’s a suntrap) and enjoy a few beers on the top deck of our open-top vintage bus.
And what about those beers? There’s a selection of local ales, as well as the usual favourites on tap. You’ll find well-chosen wines and whiskies too, as well as soft drinks to quench your thirst. Peckish? You can grab a bite to eat in the bar: just ask for a menu.
