Great pub, even better staff
Oct 2019
I was in there on Saturday and we were looked after brilliantly by the bar staff. Really friendly people and brilliant service. Good location too being right beside the train station. Definitely worth a visit. And thanks for the lift to the game when our taxi didn't turn up :-)

If you're a traveler stopping in Dumfries, this place is a cool little pub suited for everyone. Seems to be a place where locals and visitors go alike. Good beer, good prices, great little environment. Staff was also super great.

The sort of bar you would choose as your local.

The Waverley is a really good bar. Interesting decor that gives the place a haphazard but welcoming feel. We came out early and there was a good "early doors" atmosphere along with good service and top quality Tennents.

If you're hungry they also do a good range of simple, comforting pub grub and snacks.

What's not to like?

Great wee bar
Jul 2016 • Couples
Called in for a drink, were staying in a hotel over the road and looking for a cheaper option. It was like stepping back in time, a traditional old fashioned pub (no large chains) with friendly staff and ridiculously cheap bar food can only hope it keeps its unique atmosphere and will definitely call in again on our next visit to Dumfries

Good for trains!
May 2016 • Couples
This decent, clean and nice bar is the easiest one to use if you are either arriving or departing from Dumfries by train. Located opposite the station, the bar has a complete range of drinks and the drink prices are not inflated. There are a few steps to negotiate so don't have one too many! Altogether a useful place to know about.

Great place to have a pint
Jun 2016 • Friends
My niece and I stopped in to the Waverly on recommendation of our host for a pint. The owner was tending bar, a very pleasant fellow. The bar was well stocked and had a good selection of beers. It is a nice local pub for having a pint and a chat.

Great little bar!
Mar 2016
My son and I popped into this bar for a pint before catching our train at Dumfries station, which is a 2 minute walk away. I had previously been in the Waverley a number of years ago on a golfing trip and thankfully it hasn't changed.
The bar staff are still as friendly (as were the customers), the range of beers were absolutely fine, there are bar snacks (toasted sandwiches), and free WiFi.
The only downer for some might be the steps to enter the bar as I didn't see any wheelchair ramp or other access if you have difficulty with steps. I hope that I haven't missed any other access points.
This a proper bar and especially if travelling by train, is a place to be visited for a 'refresher'.
