We have visited this pub now on four or five occasions. First time a couple of years ago when looking for wedding locations when it was then called the Crossways I think. We then visited again the night before our wedding, where our entire wedding party of friends and family seemed to take it over and we all had a great time and met some very friendly people. There is always a nice mix of other wedding parties and locals and the prices of drinks are very reasonable compared to hotel bar prices and my husband always comments on the nice pint he gets. We have since been back twice and after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor I decided I had to give my positive review. It is a traditional bar area, very clean and comfortable and the bar meals are excellent value for money. We took our children who were welcome in the bar and it was safe for them to play outside. The new manager Ian is very friendly and has lots of local knowledge and will help you with anything you want to know. I have worked in the pub trade myself over the years and worked in some very unwelcoming/unsafe bars and I have to say this bar is really friendly and comfortable. It is very handy for everything in Gretna, the shopping outlet is literally across the road, petrol station, not far up the road takes you into the centre for the registery office and other wedding venues and shops. Perfect location if you are getting married. We have a lot of fond memories and it was massively down to the friendliness of the people in the Gretna Inn, the Solway hotel and the local community that made our decision to get married in Gretna an easy one. Please dont let the negative reviews put you off going, its a great place and people have to remember they are in Gretna not a 5star US hotel! We travel to Gretna as often as we can and look forward to seeing you all again soon - best of luck to Ian and the staff with your new venture!
