I grew up in Dumfries and while I may no longer live there anymore, every time I come to Dumfries to visit family, I insist on coming here for a bite to eat. The staff are really friendly and welcoming, the decor is kept to a high standard and has a really homely feel that I like. Service is always... More

Lovely place to go for lunch, staff very welcoming and friendly. And has a relaxed atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals today but had no room for dessert. But will be back in soon for afternoon coffee and home made scone/cake 😄

Decent place let down by average service and some high prices. Coffee not good, came in a small cup and still charged high prices. Steak pie was excellent and good value, afternoon tea was hugely overpriced for a basic sandwich, scone and chocolate cake. Ordered soft drinks didn't arrive even after reminding staff. Wouldn't return.

Popped in for a coffee and a cake, it was nice to be remembered by the staff and treated as if we were long lost friends. I am disabled and access to the premises is easy and obstacle free.Facilities were spotless and service by all the staff, including Andrew was fantastic, nothing was too much bother. Fantastic value for money.

The Old Bank Restaurant is near the river, and has easy access to the shops in the town centre For light lunch, afternoon refreshments etc I can wholeheartedly commend it. Scones, panninis and Lemon Drizzle cake plus a large pot of tea for two made for a most pleasant dining experience The soup looked very good too!
