The hotel is set in it’s own grounds at the top of a driveway leading to the Mabie Forest a few miles from Dumfries and has good outlooks to the countryside. The appearance inside and out is that of a typical large country house - it‘s relaxing. The menu has around half a dozen choices for each course supplemented by... More

A group of 6 adults and 4 children we visited for Saturday lunch. Service was good and they were very accommodating. Good pub grub style with plentiful portions. Dog friendly also which is great. Well worth it after a good walk in the surrounding Mabie woods.

We were visiting Dumfries and decided to stop here for lunch. The hotel is in a beautiful setting surrounded by parkland. The bar area is lovely and welcoming with a real log burner. The food was fantastic and huge portions. We ordered a side of chips each and one would easily have fed two of us! Definitely one to visit... More

Everything was excellent, perfectly prepared and delicious, the starter was very original and it was good to have haggis served this way. I... More

I’ve had a couple of meals here recently with my Mum with different outcomes although this comes down to personal preferences. The hotel itself is a country house sitting in its own well maintained grounds within the Mabie Forest. There are walks and cycle tracks nearby. We generally find it is quiet and relaxed. Staff in our experience are willing... More

They serve Illy coffee and the food was good. I was surprised that there was not a soup option on their lunch menu and no dried... More

Had breakfast and dinner here. The dinner while looking normal sized was a battle to destroy and all at reasonable prices!
