“Simply fantastic.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stumbled on this little place by complete chance. It was a Sunday teatime and we were on the lookout for something for tea. We went in expecting an average cafe and ended up with the most delicious meal we've had in years. The food was just fantastic. Freshly prepared, enormous portions and a great menu. The specials board offers 2 courses or 3 courses for a set price and there are plenty of choices for all tastes. Our 2 children opted for the kids menu and the portions were again very large and again the price very reasonable. Service was excellent and our bill for 5 (3 adults and 2 kids) which included 3 courses for the kids and main and deserts for the adults 4 soft drinks and 1 large white wine - £43. Brilliant.

I would highly recommend Scent of Galloway. Its fantastic.

“Favourite lunch place”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This little gem has been a favourite of mine for lunch and I always visit at least once when I am home. The best fish and chips in town. Service is always friendly and very efficient. Food is good grub and is ideal for a family lunch. The only thing that might put people of is the old style layout and the way it is decorated. It is in need of a liven up but the food is great.

“Always great quality eat-in or take-away”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We have been using the Scent of Galloway for a few years and have always been pleased with the service and the food. Whether it is a quick snack or meal to eat in or take away the food on the comprehensive menu is always good.

“Well worth a visit”

We went as a foursome for a meal and all chose something different. The food was excellent and the staff were polite and friendly. This is good value for money and the food was excellent, we will be going again!
