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

Visited here on July 31st and had a really lovely meal. It took a while for the food to be served but was well worth the wait. They even took the trouble to do a fish without batter for my mum. The girl who served us was very attentive but rushed off her feet - we will be back next... More

Really enjoyed our stay here both times. The food is excellent, the star steak pies are a real treat. The best thing about this place is truly the staff, Shannon was exceptionally helpful last time we were there. Will definitely stay again! Thanks!!

We're local, and having read the reviews on here had planned to visit for some time. What a disappointment:-( When we arrived we walked into an uncomfortably cold dining area. The young guy at the bar showed us to our table and was, to be fair, friendly and pleasant throughout our visit. The atmosphere was really quite uncomfortable. The total... More
