Our regular weekly pre shopping stop - great coffee (Mathew Algie) and friendly staff. Carrot cake ( although unfortunately unavailable on the last 4 visits!) very good too.

queues and confusion , very poor acoustics = very very noisy--no clean cutlery and a menu not detailing the correct produce!

The setting is lovely, just off the A75 but tucked away so quieter than you'd imagine. Lovely selection of food from local sources. Airy dining areas with lovely grounds and some outdoor tables. Fantastic play area for children ( and me!)

My family and I visit Kilnford regularly and have tried a wide range of dishes without finding a single fault. The menu is not particularly extensive or fancy but it makes the most of the wonderful produce available in the farm shop. I can fully recommended the breakfast rolls and burgers as well as some of the dishes that appear... More

Great burgers, tasty chips and macaroni was amazing. Good that children under 12 eat free with a paying adult - could see this was one reason there were as many families. Looking forward to trying out another themed night.

Been a fan of this place since they opened - it's nice, the food's great and staff always cheery. Dead handy for the A75 so do yourself a huge favour; leave the soggy egg & cress sandwiches at the petrol station and give this place a try instead. PS - the weekend breakfasts are top notch.

Dropped in for lunch last week and was much taken with the menu and specials board. With a fine array of hot and cold food on display . We settled for the lamb chops which were superb . The layout is perfect when you walk in you just know you are going to have a good meal . Well done... More

I visited Kilnford yesterday. In the shop I was very disappointed to see a very small selection of food from Dumfries and Gallloway. There are amazing small producers in our region. Why are you not supporting this industry? The cafe was okay. The staff were unable to cope with the volume of customers.

We travel the A75 regularly from the far west to Dumfries. We've done all the eateries and Kilnford is one of the most outstanding. Quite apart from the fact that it's also a good food shopping venue with excellent meat, deli. veg, and fresh fish (Thursday & Friday), the meal opportunities are endless, depending on your appetite. We've had some... More
