Parked the car in White Sands car park to go and look for something to eat ..... asked a passer by if they could recommend anywhere, and they suggested Cavens Arms ...... Great choice!! Superb meal, excellent service, and reasonable prices ...... will definately go back and have recommended it already to friends travelling to Dumfries.

The food here is of a high standard and certainly not expensive. I had the sirloin steak which was to die for just right and my wife had the pork with black pudding in a Stilton and cream sauce. Accompanied by a bottle of house red, all for around £40 what a bargain. As Arnie says I'll be back.

Great food, decent size portions. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.

A brilliant selection of beers and whisky, try the beer bat (3 differs thirds), really cool idea.

Thanks very much.

Second time I have been here and the service is excellent, they are very accommodating despite always being very busy. Food is brilliant, great prices too. And I only went because a friend who used to live there told me about it- she is now my Dumfries tourist guide!
Now I know why its been the towns pub of year since 2006!!
