More about the stair arms

A warm welcome

Located on the main Edinburgh to Borders route the hotel began as a coaching inn in 1831. We are the ideal destination for lunch, three course meal, coffee & home baking or a cooling drink, we have it all.

The Stair Arms has recently been refurbished by the Ramsay family who own & manage the hotel. They have created beautiful interiors where freshly prepared, locally sourced food is served.

If you require any further information, to discuss individual requirements or make a booking please do not hesitate to get in touch.
