Booked for four nights some time before travelling and then was a little concerned by some of the reviews. However needn't have been. Room was comfortable with tv, tea/coffee/biscuits and ensuite shower etc. Decent menu with good quality food - some dishes not available but I wouldn't criticise much for that in a small place and there was always a...

In search of a single night stay on our way home from Mull to Nottinghamshire we stopped at the Abbey Arms. We were comfortable with the tariff and the look of the hotel from the outside and bar within. Well what can I say from there? The plaster in the bedroom on the chimney wall was damp and blown, the... More

We stopped at the Abbey Arms for a well earned drink after a walk up nearby Criffel. It was a nice day so we sat outside the pub on the cobbled square. We were served quickly and the prices were very cheap. I had a nice pint of local beer and enjoyed it. We didn't eat at the Abbey Arms.... More

This Hotel looks rather nice from outside so our group including elderly grandparents went in for dinner at lunch time. Most things on the menu were not available, so three soups were ordered and a bowl of chips. Soups were all different because there was not enough portions left of one kind! They arrived and my grandfather had pea and... More

We stopped here for lunch after marrying in Gretna :) The food was homemade and delicious, the menu was varied. The owner was friendly and helpful. All 6 of us (2 adults, 4 children) were pleased with our food.

My family and I visited this establishment in the hope of procuring an admirable mid-afternoon feast. Our search for gourmet dining at this quaint village public house did not go unsatisfied! On arrival, it was mercifully uncomplicated to park our large classic automobile at said establishment. When we first entered the dining area, my rather altitudinous teenage son found the... More

We stopped at the abbey Arms for lunch and were not disappointed. The establishment lacks a little warmth of atmosphere, but the food was good. The vegetarian lasagne was delicious and not swimming in cream and cheese as it often is. The menu has a good range of the usual pub classics plus specials and some good fish dishes. Service... More

My wife and stopped for food one evening during a recent break. We were the only customers even though it was 7 pm? Our immediate thought was have we made a mistake by coming here? Nothing to concern about though. The service was good friendly and efficient and we were soon enjoying wholesome homemade food everything it claimed to be... More

We spent a week in New Abbey and went here for dinner. The food choice was good (interesting venison sausages). The service was cold and we really didn't feel welcome at all. Across the street, the pub is way more fun and there's a pool table. We spent all of our evenings there!

Nice old hotel. Room was a good size and comfy. Food was pretty good and the bar had a good range of drinks. The Latvian girls who staffed the bar were very efficient and good company. The owner was very interesting and a little eccentric. Pretty little village and a good base for exploring the local area.
