A great little Restaurant with rooms open for Evening Suppers 6 nights a week (closed Mondays) and 5 nights a week in the winter (closed Mondays & Tuesdays, October-February) serving locally sourced home cooked food to order in our cosy lounge bar. As we only have a limited number of covers and the table is yours for the night, booking really is essential.

Great food

Evening meals at the Hightae Inn are the best. There is always a good choice of high quality meals using local produce.

We were staying in Dumfries for the weekend in May and wanted a nice evening meal. The Hightae inn was recommended by Tripadvisor and we made a reservation. As we had rung on the day, I don't think there were any regualr tables for us but the manager made one up specially. The welcome was warm and the menu was... More

Had a lovely family meal to celebrate my daughters birthday. Although not a huge menu there was certainly something for everyone. Overall a very relaxed evening in quiet surroundings although the owner kept us amused with his banter A surprise find in such a small village. Definitely worth a visit

This is a great little place to go to for a special occasion. I say that as it is not particularly cheap with a main meal around the £15 mark. However I feel it justifies every penny. The food is outstanding. The owner is a great guy who is more than happy to answer questions. His wife is the chef.... More

We decided to book the restaurant on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Mark, the host was exceptionally friendly and helpful as were other staff we came into contact with.

We'd been scouting around Dumfries and Galloway for somewhere really good to eat for ages with limited success until we stumbled onto and into the Hightae Inn on a Friday evening. It was so good we decided to stay the night! Our meals were beautifully cooked using locally sourced produce, and enjoyed alongside a delicious, reasonably-priced house red. But the... More

While staying with relations they took us to this fab oasis of gourmet delights. Although the menu is small everything is fresh and perfectly and inventively cooked. Big thanks to the owners Morag and Mark who made the evening so memorable. Lastly ,but hugely important, loved the large selection of craft Gins. Need to revisit

On Saturday night I had my first visit to The Hightae Inn. Had I not had a navigator I'm unsure I would have found the place! It had been highly recommended and my initial impression was of a traditional building sympathetically restored and decorated in a modern Scottish flair. There was adequate parking for about 5/6 cars next to the... More

My wife and I dined at The Hightae Inn for third time last night. First visit back in September was prompted by some local advertising but when I looked at Trip Advisor I noticed that the vast majority of the reviews were from visitors to the area.
