My partner and I stayed over on Christmas Night 2015 with our Dog after a bit of a horrible journey up from Merseyside in the late afternoon. We were really looking forward to staying in a small, local pub known for its friendliness and we weren't disappointed. In fact the only disappointing part was that we were too tired to... More

I can't rate this place highly enough. The food is exceptional, totally fresh and locally sourced. The prices are very reasonable. It's in a quiet little village, so it isn't overwhelmed by tourists. The manager is so friendly and can't do enough to help you. Next time we are in Dumfries and Galloway we won't hesitate in returning. Thank you... More

The service was great - our hostess was very friendly and made sure that if we needed anything, just ask. The food on offer is proper, home cooked and delicious. The chips are hand cut (not frozen) and... More
