“Delicious soup with a wonderful view!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

We always eat at the Mariners when we visit Kippford. The view is fantastic and the food is simple but well cooked and plenty of it. I always have the soup and its consistently delicious. The staff are welcoming, they don't mind if you bring your dogs inside which is a bonus for us.

“Nice to visit again, and a lovely lunch!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

I have been going to kippford for many years with my family whilst growing up and I decided to show my husband beautiful SW Scotland for the first time and the places I know - kippford and the mariner hotel are some of these places. We enjoyed a lovely lunch, staff friendly and it was busier than I thought it would be at the end of October as kippford is only small. Food came quickly and was of very good quality. We had a lovely view of the boats on the solway. I've been here many times and will definitely be back again. Lovely beer garden for the summer time

“nice view”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

we stayed in kippford for a few days and ate here 1 night. The food was good pub grub, basically what you would expect, large portions, a lot of menu choice although we didn' have room for dessert. We sat outside as the views are nice although a bit windy when we were there.

“Disgraceful”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We were staying in Kippford at a brilliant guest house - but no evening meal. We arrived at this hotel for an evening meal. The tables, and the bar areas, were dirty, and the place totally out of character for a quiet retreat in he village, with loud music and games machines. The food was served quickly but so awful that neither of us managed to eat much of it. Indeed, the plates went back looking pretty much as full as when they arrived.... Horrible - will not be returning, ever!!
