A few miles past Gretna Green Clarencefield is a settlement yet to achieve one-horse-town status. The Farmer's Inn is therefore the one place to stay. The Inn itself is bog-standard, with somewhat tired decor and furnishings. Likewise, there is a typical much-thumbed but still tasty menu. But there is a fair choice of little known Scots beers.

We booked this inn as we were attending a friends wedding at Comlongon Castle nearby. Prior to arriving I confirmed with the owner that we would be able to check in at 12 (as the check in time is 12.30) When we arrived we parked at the back of the inn. I made the grave mistake of entering what looked... More

This review has been reported for breaching Trip Advisor guidelines. I like most accommodation providers will not tolerate blackmail. The reviewer blatantly threatened us with a bad review unless we complied with their "demands" - sorry you were speaking to the wrong person. Apart from that the review is more fantasy than fact to put it very politely. As I... More

Highly recommended. My Wife & I along with parents and family regularly eat, drink and socialise in the Farmers. Staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food is very tasty and a good choice on the menu. We have had family & friends stay in the accommodation behind the Pub aswell and they have always given good feedback.

Our earliest advertised check in time is 12.30 and occasionally, depending on the circumstances, we will let guests in at 12.00. However if a guest arrives unannounced over 2 hours before our regular check in time they cannot "expect" to get access to their rooms. This was explained to the guest and directions were given to places where he could... More

We had a very warm welcome after a long drive. The room was very spacious with a good sized bathroom, this was let down a bit by the poor leaky showerhead. The food was good quality 'pub grub' with hearty portions and a very good guest beer on tap. Breakfast was a very good full Scottish with cereals if you... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again sometime. The showerhead in that room has been replaced, sorry for any inconvenience. We are currently refurbishing the showers in all the rooms, one room has already been done and it looks really great ! More

As everybody who works in the hospitality sector knows there are some people in this world that no matter what you do they are never satisfied. This is a case in point. The guests involved were Wildfowlers and we went out of our way to accommodate them. The comments regarding the bar or kitchen closing early are out of context... More

We couldn't get a room at Comlongon Castle for a friend's wedding and found this local B&B online, which was ideal for us. We were at the wedding all afternoon and evening, and only needed somewhere to get ready and to sleep. The room was a very clean family room, the heating was on even though it was late summer,...

Stayed here while attending a wedding at Comlongdon Castle near the Inn. We were in the room adapted for people with disabilities which meant our bathroom was bigger that was great. The rooms are clean and there is everything you need including kettle, tv and hairdryer (didn't use due to taking my own). The owners are very friendly and the... More

We spent 3 nights here to meet up with old friends and we were treated like family. Wonderful food served in the bar, and in the morning the breakfast was fantastic. The rooms were clean and roomy and we all slept well......no traffic noise as the rooms are behind the main inn. The owners were keen to see that we... More
