Confusing

Decided to try here again. I want to love it, I don't. Te menu just inside the door is in the wrong place, if you don't know it's there you don't see it and if you are looking at it, no one can get past. Then there's food on a hotplate, with no indication of what it is or prices.... read more

Went here yesterday with my mother and daughter. Place was absolutely packed but we managed to find a table. I had the xmas turkey sub, it was amazing! I only had half and was stuffed. My mother had the steak burger as usual and it never disappoints. I love this place and the shop sells lovely local produce

Thank you for a lovely cappucino and hot chocolate and lovely cakes, all done with friendly service and genuine smiles, both in the restaurant and well stocked shop. A treat on a winter afternoon.

Was here last night for christmas carvery with my husband, son and daughter in law. The food was ok but there was absolutely no atmosphere in the place at all and only 2 or 3 other tables in. The staff just ignored us completely. Was disgusting. Lady carving the meat was miserable. So much for her happy christmas jumper. The... More

We visited just before lunch, because like people say it does get busy. There's plenty of choice, from snacks, to main meals. overall the turnover of food is done so it is freshly cooked, but depend on your visit time, items have looked a bit tired so to speak, visited about 15 times now, and only had that problem twice....

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.
