First visit in 30 plus years. I was back in my "home" town on a short visit and we popped in for lunch. I was impressed by the standard of the restaurant and the choice on the menu. I would recommend the Tigh Na Mara for either a meal or just a drink.

While staying in the area we used this restaurant for a couple of lunches. The range of dishes we had were all delicious with generous portions. On Easter Sunday the restaurant was very full, so full marks to kitchen and front of house staff for their efficient and friendly service under pressure. When paying my bill, I neglected to properly... More

We are regular visitors here. It is a great place for lunch or evening. They have a very extensive menu catering for all tastes. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming. We visited last week for a 60th birthday and the staff made it extra special with a cake and singing :) looking forward to our next visit.

We were staying in Newton Stewart in September and a friend who lives in the area recommended that we went to the restaurant - we were not disappointed. Off the back of this we booked a weekend break in the self catering house they have on the grounds of the hotel - which I have also reviewed - which was... More
