Step inside and perhaps it's hard at first to reconcile age with the comfortably plush 21st century home to the finest cuisine and wines

It is soon obvious though that the Inn has undergone a complete modernisation makeover tastefully achieved without compromising the many original features that are key to the building that last underwent major change as far back as 1804.

Rab, as he is known, has built up a considerable reputation for running restaurants where quality, taste, originality, variety and value for money are a trademark.

    We travelled to Glasgow from North Lincolnshire on the morning of our visit. I booked the Auldgirth Inn for on the way back due to its reviews. We were not disappointed - an excellent meal, super service. Will certainly return one day.

    Disappointing. £8.00 for a glass of house wine. Complex menu, no honest food. We had Haggis Scotch Egg which was good, Hake Soup which tasted nice but had lumps of uncooked potato in it and Mussels which were ok, just ok, I did not finish the dish. For mains we had Scallops and Black Pudding, the scallops were very good but the black pudding was not, Pork Fillet and Belly served with Dauphinoise Potatoes and Mixed Roast Vegetables, the fillet was bland and unseasoned, the belly was nice but the skin was a soggy mass, the potatoes were scorched on top and uncooked inside and the veg was a greasy mix of undercooked and overcooked. I ordered a coffee and had to wait ten to fifteen minutes for it, when it did come it was extremely bitter and unpleasant to my taste. The restaurant is very smart but the chairs were uncomfortably low for our table. The toilets are a bit of a surprising let down.

    Lovely food in a great atmosphere. I`m coeliac & that was fully catered for, which was good as there were plenty of choices on the menu for me to choose from. Very enjoyable evening & the lift back to our hotel was very much appreciated after. Thanks

    We were welcomed on entering the Inn. Seated at our table with a smile. Service was good throughout the meal. We weren't rushed to order. The music wasn't too loud thankfully. The meal was excellent. I haven't had beef like it. We all had a different dish. Not one complaint. If I had to be super critical the dessert menu didn't offer as much as I thought it might. A very pleasing experience and we'll be back.

    Absolutely amazing meal! 5stars. First time eating hear an will most definitely be back. Great atmosphere, very friendly laid back staff, but still on the ball the whole night keeping am assertive eye on you without being pushy. Top class food, with fantastic flavours, steak & lobster special was amazing. Reasonably priced, probably more city like prices than usual around dumfries & galloway but no qualms at all about it. and you get a bloody good pint as well!

    The food and service were both exceptional. The dry-aged beef was flavorful, tender, and cooked perfectly. All side dishes were very good and complemented the entrees very well. The beer selections, while not extensive, offered a variety and all in our party found something to suit the different tastes. We will definitely return to the restaurant at the Auldgirth Inn the next time we are in the area.

    We had the taster menu - delicious and fabulous value compared to other similar restaurants. One of our party couldn't eat cheese and this was dealt with easily and without fuss. Great to see and talk to the chef. Wine pairings were great - sparkling chilled shiraz was a revelation.

    Me and my better half tried the taster menu plus a cheeky scotch egg in the middle of it. The food was amazing, you could see the effort and precision that had been put into it. The chef would come out and explain each dish which was a lovely touch! The service was outstanding, nothing was a bother to any of the staff and they were able to recommend options. Think I smashed the birthday meals choice this year!! Will definitely be back! And the Sunday roasts look amazing!!!

    Anniversary dinner We came to the Auldgirth Inn with recommendations and also gift vouchers we were given 😜, a warm greeting on arrival and a wee drink in the public “snug” bar which was lovely, staff were very attentive in a good way and Rab on hand to see everything going smoothly, food was excellent absolutely no complaints, not hurried in any way, the decor in my opinion is exactly right, plenty to look at but not overboard, toilets very clean , overall a very good experience, would definitely recommend. Even took a picture of my main course it was that good but not going to post it , go see for yourself.

    Right from when we entered the Auldgirth Inn we were made welcome. The décor is fabulous and the service was 1st class. The food was just incredible. My chilli with dark chocolate tortillas starter was an unforgettable dining experience. I can't stop thinking about it. Just Yummy!! The steak and braised beef were melt in the mouth fabulous.. We couldn't resist sweet and that was stunning too. I would definitely recommend this amazing venue for a 1st class dining experience.

    After i booked online a table for 4 on New Years eve i called the restaurant and asked if there is a special menu for New Years eve. I was told that they have the normal menu. When i arrived on the day i realised that they have special menu charging £45 adults and £25 children. When i asked for the bill my 2 children [8 and 12 years old] were charged as adults. I asked them why they charged my children as adults and they brough after that another bill. As you understand they should have informed me about the extra charge on that night.
