The staff are really welcoming. The dining room nicely decorated. The menu took us by surprise, the range of dishes left us... More

My wife and I and two friends called in for an impromptu lunch. Excellent, friendly and attentive waiter. We took advantage of the Specials Board which was excellent value and very well cooked. Will definitely go there again if we ever return to Lockerbie.

Good morning from a sunny Lockerbie. Thank you very very much for your kind words.

I was lovely to meet you both, and I think by the... More

Being a local, I've driven past the Townhead and always thought it was a bit of a drinking mans pub, but after having dinner there last night I have to admit I was totally wrong. Walk inside and you'll be greeted by fresh decor, a nice modern setup and very much on the ball landlord. Certainly not a drinking mans... More
