Wonderful little (6 tables) restaurant and bar and accommodation (not viewed). Best fresh food. Small but good menu. Great bar with well stocked whiskies and gins. A little hard to find but well worth it. Sat Nav recommened. 20 mins out of Lockerbie. Thanks Morag and Mark.

Many thanks for coming over and eating with us here in Hightae - we're so glad you like what we do. It'd be great to see you again. TOP TIP - Satnavs can behave wonderfully oddly at times however we're just 10 minutes from the A74(M) at Lockerbie. Head for Lochmaben/Dumfries on the A709 and then turn off for Hightae... More

Completely enjoyed every minute of our visit here. Food was delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. Very talented chef. Well worth going off the beaten track! Mark was a great host and very attentive. Restaurant is small but beautifully decorated and very cosy. We'll definitely be back!

Best food ever, all home cooked and local produce at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere being very important to us was perfect, a very homely little gem not to be missed. Loved the Gin menu too. Alan and Barbara

Stunning food, drinks and atmosphere all meld into on the best meals I've had in Scotland and the Lowlands by far. Attention to detail on the menu with whisky and drink pairing are also two major highlights of my favourite place to eat when visiting my pals in Lockerbie. Thanks for a great time from Thunder Bay Canada!

I stayed at the Inn as I was working in the local area. I stayed for dinner on the first night and breakfast the next morning. I had the salmon for along with rice, leaves, tomatoes and pepperoni slices. It was amazing! Really well cooked and just the right portion! I had the plum bakewell for dessert which was just...

So glad you ate with us and chuffed you enjoyed things. The oven-roasted salmon with chorizo is indeed pretty good and the Bakewell Tart's a bit fab (had some myself later on). Hope to see you again. M&M, The Hightae Inn More

I go regularly and have never been disappointed. Very pleasant atmosphere. Small European menu. Food always well cooked.Service occasionally a little slow but only if very busy. The host is always considerate. Good selection of Scotch. Excellent puddings. Easy parking. Quaint village.

A great little Restaurant with rooms open for Evening Suppers 5 nights a week (closed Mondays & Tuesdays) serving locally sourced home cooked food to order in our cosy lounge bar. As we only have a limited number of covers and the table is yours for the night, booking really is essential.
