We have been going here since it opened and have never been disappointed. Friendly staff too. It's very popular now and thus it's not always easy to get a seat at peak times. In the summer there is a nice outside area and a place for the children to run around. Food is good. If I had one negative comment... More

We went here shortly after they opened and were disappointed. The main courses were OK, but nothing special, and the cakes were standard industrial ones. We went back, tentatively, and found the place excellent. The main courses were excellent and everything now seems to be home made. A small but nice outdoors play area for children has appeared, too. Warmly... More

Stopped for a break on the way south. Purchased beef stroganoff, rice, roasted veg. The temperature of the beef was significantly under 68°C to the point I asked for it to be reheated, I saw no evidence of anyone then measuring the temp of the rest of the bowl or removing it from the counter. Taste wise is was pleasant... More

My wife and I called in this afternoon for a late lunch. The menu board disappeared as we arrived and when we enquiries about what was available we were told "the grill" was still working. We ordered the burger, a coffee and a can of pop. Sadly for farm shop type restaurant the burgers arrived overdone with artificial chips. The... More

This is a lovely wee restaurant just outside Dumfries on the A75 Castle Douglas Road. The food is excellent, the best cauliflower cheese I've tasted! Very family friendly with outdoor play area and amazing playhouse for kids. Farm shop/Deli is well stocked with variety of fresh produce. Definetley well worth a visit.

Been several times and never been disappointed. If you are an egg and chips and all day breakfast person don't go there. This is about real food. Excellent array of salads. All very reasonably priced. The asparagus quiche was brilliant. The hot food looked good too. I was spoilt for choice. It has to be the only place in Dumfries... More

Just in from dinner at Kilnford. The Thursday theme was fajitas. The step by step instructions for selecting your dinner were fun; the food was fresh and incredible value. We have eaten here before and are never disappointed but tonight was super - everyone's tray was loaded with fresh sides and three kinds of fajitas although have to say the... More

We have been to Kilnford quite a few times for coffee/lunch and the surroundings are good, quality is too, although service can be slow but we always enjoy it. We had dinner here last night and were disappointed with their pricing. Steak night is advertised from £7.95, but the only steak at that price is gammon. They have a pave... More

A very handy stop-over if travelling to or from Stranraer with a pleasant welcome from staff. Unfortunately lunch was a little disappointing for the price paid. I'm afraid the carrots were gritty and the potatoes a bit tasteless.

I have been here for lunch several times and I always thoroughly enjoy it. The food is great and always fresh and there is a nice selection of cakes. Staff are always friendly.
