Our only 'complaint' was the burger my husband had off the specials board...it was overcooked & very dry. An... More

The waiter was very welcoming, efficient and attentive - we will certainly visit again next time we're in Dumfires and highly... More

Lovely big chunks of steak, and thick gravy. I had the usual jacket potato with tuna and side salad. Always assured of a... More
