As we were all on afternoon off from work, we had some Prossecco, we were delighted when the bill came, very reasonable, all in all a great time was had by all,... 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. The meal that came was stone cold within two minutes of its arrival on the table and was consequently completely inedible. My wife had a scone which was like cardboard, and was also left... More

The Doonhamer has been totally revamped and is now called No.17 still owned and run by Florence and Nick. They now only specialise in breakfasts and lunches and do this really well. The food is prepared I front of you and is excellent. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and the staff are great. If you want breakfast or lunch or... More

The Doonhamer is always a dissapointment when we go, which we do rarely due to the bad service… the food is excellent, truly very nice and simple but full of flavour. The service is dreadful – you get the feeling that you are holding the waiting staff back from their other endeavours! You feel like saying If I am getting... More
