We have stopped here on several occasions while travelling from the Midlands to visit my parents in Perthshire. From being a good stopover for a quick appetising meal or snack, it has deteriorated to being very ordinary. My meal of Mississippi chicken was like salty chicken nuggets and my husband was similarly disappointed with his chilli beef burger which had... More

Fried hamburger in a dry bap and undercooked oven chips, the food was uninspiring, some of the staff were really nice, some weren't. Very disappointed, not much else to say, I expected much more in such a historic place

Firstly when we arrived we were arrogantly asked to move to a... More

We took a steak, but if was only salt. We sent it back but they told us that in UK pork meat is salted so we paid the whole dish enjoying only two boiled potatoes. Poor the liver of scottish people if their porks are as they tried to make us believe.

The Gretna Inn is a lovely place to stop for a meal, the waiting staff were pleasant and efficient. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. We were lead through to the sports bar following our meal where we stayed to carry on drinking and were pleasantly surprised by the locals hospitality. The staff were second to none, our... More

What a difference a couple of months can make !! Last time I was here, was a fun and enjoyable experience - this was the flip side. Firstly staff - the barman who was there in April and made our visit so entertaining and memorable, no longer there. Hopefully he's moved on to somewhere far better, a win-win situation for... More

My wife, friends and I called in here the evening before our daughters wedding. I have to say what we were presented is possibly the worst food I have tasted in a very long time. To the point where our plates remained virtually untouched. When asked if everything was ok we did complain but were told they were sorry to... More

We stopped off in Gretna on our way to the Highlands. The whole town seems to have a very tired feel to it and the Gretna Inn is no exception. After driving round several pubs trying to find somewhere to eat and have a beer, we finally plumped for this place. Sadly, my hubby was out of luck on the... More
