We take great pride in the cleanliness of our kitchen, so therefore apart from our daily cleaning which takes place after each daily restaurant service, we use a Monday morning to do our deep clean, but reopen in the...

I was drawn to the Townhead by the pictures on the website, which conjoured up a feeling that this could be some chic boutique gastropub hotel. When we arrived, I entered with some trepidation. It looked like an old local boozer from the outside. Inside, things were looking up. The staff were helpful, friendly and chatty, the restaurant area was... More

We stopped at the townhead hotel as an alternative to paying the extortionate prices charge in Glasgow for the commonwealth games. We found the service to be first class, friendly and genuine. The rooms were better then we had anticipated too, recently refurbished and very comfortable too. The locals are very friendly and genuine, a great experience. Great for a... 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.
