Christmas chalet pops up in the borders

CHRISTMAS has come to The Buccleuch Arms in St Boswells near Melrose in the shape of a new festive pop-up bar.

The winter chalet style pop-up, named Chalet-Coo, will be open every Friday and Saturday throughout December offering guests a selection of festive drinks including mulled wine, Christmas cocktails and hot chocolate.

Billy Hamilton, owner of The Buccleuch Arms, said Christmas is a “fantastic time of year” for the venue and so this year the team wanted to “make it that extra bit special”.

“The pop-up bar is a really fun and novel way of getting into the cosy festive party mode and we’re looking forward to another busy weekend as the final countdown to Christmas begins,” said Hamilton.
