Cold day so were looking forward to nice cosy Sunday lunch. Hmmm pretty boring food and had keep our jackets on. Won't be heading back sadly. Main meals cost around £9 and didn't seem homemade, very bland!

We have just returned from a short break to Kippford. We ate at the Mariners twice and had very good meals each visit. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. We could take our dog with us which was a big bonus. The food was good value for money and vegetarians were well catered for.

The bar staff were grumpy, the tables filthy and sticky, the kids enjoyed their burgers, served with old salad, my vegetarian lasagne was tasteless slop, will not go there again. The area is stunning, gorgeous sunsets and scenery.

The meal was wonderful and the atmosphere was great and the views were outstanding. The waitresses were also great but one female member of the bar staff was very rude and i dont believe that the waitress got the tip we gave her. We also noticed another young member of staff eating chips at the bar not helping anyone.

This is a review of dining at the Mariner. The one considerable plus is the view which is a stunning one across extremely picturesque Kippford Harbour. Unfortunately the dining experience did not live up to the view. The service is from the bar which is not a minus in itself but the hotel was clearly understaffed - there was no-one... More
