The restaurant is pleasantly situated by the river. We were pleased to see good choice of meals suitable for vegetarian and vegans. There is a separate vegan menu. Don't know anywhere else in Dumfries that has this. We had a pleasant lunch with good fresh ingredients and it was nicely presented. It was a bit expensive but worth it.

Hi my partner and I booked our meal. Once we found it,we were pleasantly surprised. Nice table overlooking the river. Good choice of menu. Staff very pleasant, unobtrusive. Food presented well,portion size good. Personally I didn't like the taste of their coffee. Atmospheric Would definitely return if visiting Dumfries again.

Finding ourselves in Dumfries on a Monday we had tried The Caven Arms only to find they don't serve food that day, and their suggestion was shut for kitchen renovations. I'd seen the sign for Hullabaloo over the river from where we'd parked and since we were now starving just went to find it on the basis that anything was... More

Eating out as a vegan is difficult especially in Dumfries, after looking at the menu I seen a dish which sounded as if it would be vegan by default. When I asked the waitress she informed me that they actually had a vegan menu for all 3 courses. She brought the menu and it was WOW !!! so much tasty... More

Having had a lovely day out in Dumfries we stumbled up Hullabaloo by accident when parked across the river and looking for an eaterie. It is understated on the outside and if it wasn't for the large sign directing you there you would miss it. Persevere though because you will not be disappointed. Once inside it is clean and very...

This wee restaurant was an unexpected find through trip advisor. We had been on a family day out and had decided to get something to eat in Dumfries before heading home. Parking next to the river we were flicking through restaurants nearby. Hullabaloo was seemingly only 115 metres away so out we all get from the car. Looking around couldn't... More

We travelled to Dumfries to show friends what a pleasant town this is. Went to the Robert Burns Museum only to find it was closing for it's lunchtime hour. We decided to try the Hullabaloo restaurant within the museum building and we weren't disappointed. Warm welcome by the young staff. Good variety on the menu plus a "specials board". Food... More

Popped in for a late lunch, very friendly and helpful waitress, nice easy listening music in the background, good quality local produce cooked very well. One tiny gripe on my part is that I was not asked how I wanted my steak done, however it came out exactly as I would have asked. One of my friends is vegan and... More

I visited for dinner with my meat eating boyfriend. The service wasn't great and the food was rather oily, however it was great to find a place in the town with a separate vegan menu. I requested the vegan menu and was brought it promptly, however as well as the a la carte menu, he was provided with an early... More
