Popped in for a drink, nothing special to report, staff were a bit miserable, was just convenient as was passing by on our mountain bikes and needed a pit stop. Outside setting is nice and overlooks the harbour

Excellent food, particularly the seafood. Although the restaurant was busy, the service was prompt and the staff were efficient. We stay nearby in a caravan at Dalbeattie and will certainly eat here again.

We ate here on our second night staying at Solway Pine Cottages near Kippford. It was recommended in the literature and we weren't disappointed. This little unassuming pub with slightly worn tables but a lovely feel about it was great. We had the chicken sizzler, a lovely piece of chicken in a brandy and chilli cream sauce, with chips and...

We walked down from the Kippford Holiday Park and were warmly welcomed by the staff. It was reasonably busy when we visited but the staff took the time to be pleasant, helpful and personable. I particularly liked the fact they remembered you during the evening including our teenagers' likes and dislikes. The food was of a very high standard and... More

Visited Anchor Hotel recently with two friends. We were booked in for two nights but the weather was so bad on the second day we decided to leave early. We offered to pay for the room but was told this was not necessary. Needless to say we were very grateful for that consideration. The hotel is situated on the side... More

The hotel is well situated in this delightful village, with views over the water. It is extremely popular so seemed to be teaming with people at all times of day. Our room overlooked the front so had a sea view but being on the top floor it was not too noisy as there was very little traffic. However it was... More

Went here for a lunch meal with friends. Food was very good and was value for money. Would recommend the pulled pork burger! The pub area had a nice feel to it and would definitely visit again. The front of hotel over looks the harbour, which has some stunning views.
