This atmospheric country pub was a breath of fresh air! Old fashioned interior which was warm and welcoming. Clean and well decorated, old fashioned yes but very well maintained. Open fires, and plenty of wall decoration if you love fishing and shooting. Dogs welcomed and almost every visitor during our stay had at least one, all well behaved and enjoyed...

Many thanks for your review and we are glad we made your Valentine's day so memorable. We would certainly be pleased to help in arranging your marriage. The inn is currently undergoing some refurbishment but these things take time.

I Swopped out the mash that came with the dish for dauphinois potato. Accompanying vegetable was creamy cabbage with lentils. I do love lots of different tastes, it...

Got a pleasant surprise with the food that excelled all expectations. The pork belly was a tasty treat. The homemade ice cream made my day. I would rate the ambience 9/10. Would recommend to friends and family alike.

We sat by a warm fire and...

Stopped in to refuel on our way to Kirkcudbright. Great food, very well priced with great service. They even fired up the log fire at our request (sorry about the photo...) Will be planning future routes that go past here.
