We booked for dinner in the restaurant on a quiet November evening but as it was so quiet they asked us to eat in the Bar/bistro. Well in the end it was not that quiet and whereas the diniing room is set up with table cloths knapkins etc we were eating on bar furniture/ bare tables with paper knapkins etc... More

We ate in the restaurant as a meal out while staying elsewhere. The staff were super and the ambiance fine. A broad mix of guests from bow ties to patched jeans. The smoked platter starter was fabulous, a meal in itself and really tasty. The Galloway rump steak sous vide - basically boil in the bag - tasted of, well,... More

We arrived in Kirkcudbright tonight and was told about the Selkirk Arms restaurant. We are pretty fussy eaters and this is by far the best food we have had in the 4 weeks we have been in the UK. It was superbly crafted with a diverse and well packaged menu. The food was fresh innovatively and tastefully combined and we... More

I visit my family from Castle Douglas and this is where we normally go for dinner. It's very good quality and good prices. Plenty of real ales to keep you going as well. You can park in the nearby council offices car park if the hitel one is full. The welcome is very friendly which adds to the charm.

We have been to the Selkirk a number of times and in addition to their excellent food the staff are friendly and helpful. The same quality applies whether you eat in the restaurant or in the bar and is a regular stop for us.

We were only in Kirkcudbright for the day and the Selkirk Arms was recommended to us as somewhere nice to eat. We were not disappointed, we had soup for starters and fish and chips, the fish was huge and we only just managed to finish it, we had no room for dessert. The staff were very friendly and helpful, hope... More

We ended up at the Selkirk Arms after having planned to go to another pub which was fully booked - I'm glad it was as our experience at the Selkirk Arms was second to none. On approach we were a bit apprehensive as it looked so nice and posh, and we had been walking for most of the afternoon with... More

Had a fantastic 65th birthday Sunday lunch at the Selkirk Arms - every part of my day was outstanding. The management were really helpful in advance and then surpassed themselves on the day. The food was perfect and my guests and I could not have been happier with the service - very personal and efficient without in any way being... More
