We often visit the Gretna Gateway outlet, and always make a point of calling in to the Gretna Chase for lunch.
Called in Yesterday after doing some christmas shopping. It was fairly busy, and i opted for one of their lunch specials - cumberland sausage with mashed potato and onion gravy. Partner went for one of the board specials - smoked haddock fishcakes with chips. It was only after i had ordered that i realised i had opted for one of the supposedly smaller portion options - but i neednt have worried - as always the portions at Gretna Chase are very generous - my meal was served in a soup plate with creamy mashed potato, delicious cumberland sausage and really tasty gravy - plenty for a lunch. partner had two large fishcakes, serves with a wee bucket of hand cut chips, and lots of fresh veg - cabbage cooked with bacon, carrots and brocolli. Nothing fancy but everything piping hot, cooked well, and very tasty.
Service was also good. Only thing i think could be improved is the seating in the bar area - many of the small stools are very shaky and i think some new seating is called for. Thats just a small point, overall this is a great place to stop off for a lunch.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the Scottish / English border, Gretna Green is world famous for its runaway marriages and in the mid nineteenth century there was much rivalry between the various marriage house proprietors ... The Gretna Chase Hotel was built by John Murray, an extremely successful businessman in the marriage trade, and tenant of Allison's toll-bar. Completed in 1856, Murray built the hotel opposite the toll-bar. It proved very popular with clients, being the first in the area to offer stabling for horses. Today, The Gretna Chase Hotel offers modern amenities, but retains much of its original character. All bedrooms have pleasant views of the surrounding countryside, and public rooms are furnished in a style in-keeping with the age of the hotel. Fully licensed, privately owned and completely supervised by the owners, this small but extremely comfortable hotel offers the discerning guest a carefree informality away from city pressures. We would be delighted to show you around the hotel by appointment , to highlight all the facilities we have to offer and discuss your personal requirements. ... more less
