We required a take away whilst on holiday in Dumfries. Excellent service, friendly staff. Was busy and obviously popular with locals. Only downside is no outside parking

We had a fabulous dinner for Claire's birthday! Food was fab, service was fab and the accessory candle in our gateaux was the icing on the cake! Big loves to Patrick and the other guy with the sleeve tattoo!
