Description: The Belted Galloway Visitor Centre offers Newton Stewart and area a facility for both visitors and locals. Situated in the main town car park directly behind the main street, the facility has its own 12 space car park, full disabled access with toilets and it is all on one level. The facility is privately owned and receives no public money so has to operate at a profit, despite this we offer free information and stage community events on an ongoing basis. In addition to Tourist Information the facility also provides heritage, historical and community information by wall boards, video and our "tartan history" on the roof and walls.

“Really nice food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Had a bake potato with chicken korma it was great :D, just what I fancied at the time. Had a nice wee shop with loads of nice wee things in it at reasonable prices. Only downfall is they don't take cards yet so make sure you have cash on you when you go :)

“Welcoming reception.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I called into the Belted Galloway, Newton Stewart for lunch I have had a meal in this establishment before, and enjoyed the ambiance, and the service. The quality, th quantity of the food and the value for money impressed me. This visit was no difference, the staff have managed to maintain the lovely friendly and comfortable service provision that enhances the Newton Stewart attraction to both visitors and locals. I will, without doubt call in here the next time that I am in the town and want somewhere to eat.

“Lovely relaxting atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Very enjoyable meal in this establishment, very relaxing atmosphere with friendly staff who are very happy to help you.

They also class themselves as a visitor center and are well stocked with Scottish goods and local information. If you can't find some information just ask, the proprietor will be more than willing to give advice and directions to local attractions.

A very useful local resource with fine food and friendly service.
