Description: 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.

From the warmest of welcomes to the most scrumptious of menus this little inn makes your evening one to remember and experience again and again. Mark as the front of house host and Morag as the endlessly talented chef are the very close to perfect couple! (Mark would claim perfection Morag would be justified in that high accolade!! Ha ha!)...

Liked everything about the place, friendly very comfortable and the food was great. Perfect for breaking up a trip further into Scotland it was just a bout halfway for us.

We joined friends to have a super meal in this Hightae village restaurant. It was rurally peaceful but aromas from the farms made our mouths water. It was busy but not overcrowded and the staf knowledgeable and friendly. To think it is really only a stones throw away from Dumfries makes us want to return with even more friends. Miller

Thanks for finding Hightae amongst all this great local produce - we hope to see you again over from Dumfries - remember don't use the satnav. It could take you over Carthat Hill which would be a great shame on your vehicle. Cheers M&M, The Hightae Inn. More

Quaint restaurant with an enthusiastic host and his dog. Fantastic food, fantastic alcohol (West brewery beer, superb whisky selection-HP21, OP21, Amrut fusion some of the many examples), fantastic service. Call before you visit to ensure a table. Well worth the drive.

Glad you enjoyed the food and drinks - WEST beer's pretty special isn't it ? Surviving a Welsh Terrier introduction is also pretty impressive. Cheers M&M, The Hightae Inn. More

Unexpected visit to this wee place as we were visiting friends who were staying in the area. From the moment we stepped over the door, this place impressed.

We ate both dinner and breakfast. Both featured locally sourced produce and were excellently cooked and presented by the hosts. The local smoked salmon still lingers in our memories.....

We arrived without a reservation on a Saturday night and had discussed alternatives on the way over, had they been full. We left with a New Favourite. Yeah there wasn't an extensive choice, but I didn't want the same old bland overpriced selections. Great food prepared perfectly, personal service throughout. Really enjoyed and will recommend to everyone I know. Though... More
