Multi award winning and the only of its' kind
Simon and Debbie Rutherford opened the very first Micropub in Scotland in the summer of 2015. It was a leap of faith that led to 10 top awards, including Visit Scotland's Best bar/pub in the Lothians and Borders, Scottish Bar and Brew Pub of the Year and Trip Advisor's most prestigious award - the Choice Award, putting them in the top 10% attractions in the World.
Closer to home, Rutherfords was described by a local as "The beating heart of the square"...
They were also responsible for launching the World's first Haggis Gin and organised and hosted Kelso's first Classic American car show.
When 2020 threw us all the curveball none of us saw coming, it was time to start re-thinking the way to deliver the uniqueness of Rutherfords to a wider audience in a safe way.... To them, it was clear...
"You can't come to us...so we have to think of a way to bring the pub to YOU!"
In April 2021 Rutherfords Micropub changed ownership and we wish Paul Mitchell and the team all the best.
