Local Restaurants


The combination of a delicatessen and restaurant is the culmination of Kenny and Karen Coltman’s dream to bring an exciting new dining and shopping experience to the Scottish Borders.


Osso opened its doors in December 2007, its aim - exciting food, big flavours, reasonable prices and happy customers. Ally McGrath had a long background of working in the best restaurants.
