Nipped in here with my husband for a bite to eat at lunchtime. Immediately given menus and seated. My husband chose the soup of the day with a crusty roll, the soup was tomato and vegetable, and I chose a roll and scrambled egg plus two coffees. The soup looked lovely, thick with vegetables, and smelled really nice. Husband was... More

The place is now called No 17, however, I would place it much lower than that in the places in Dumfries to which I would return.
