“IF YOU CAN’T CATER FOR IT DON’T ADVERTISE IT”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Placed an order at 1730 hours for food, were informed at 1900 hours that some of the items ordered weren't available and the order would not be ready for another half an hour.

Food did not arrive until after 2100 hours.

I honestly don't know where to start when describing the standard of service we encountered here.

“Great place for family dinner”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Although its quite small, the delicious food and attentive service make up for it. Generous portions and good value. The gents toilet is equipped with a changing table, which a lot of places don't, which is a bonus for this father! Good range of beverages also.

“Consistently great food and good value for money”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Set in a lovely old manor house with a nursery garden and a stunning view over Wigtown Bay, the food at The Wigtown House Bistro is very good value for money and always tasty, well served and plenty of variety.
