    It was a culinary delight, a feast for the senses. My girlfriend and I left nourished in both body and spirit.

    Really enjoyed our meal. A lot of aspects of each dish prepared in house to bring together some really nice food. 🙌🏻

    Selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. Not disappointed. Doesn't look much from the road but the service and food was excellent.

    We were here last night for the Wednesday steak night, it was phenomenal. The service was fantastic, attentive but not overly so, and well informed. We will go again at a weekend, as I’d like to try other things off the menu, and also try a few of their beers. The meal was actually a lot of food. 16-18 oz steak, 2 well seasoned chips, peppercorn sauce, and macaroni, which was outstanding. My wife enjoyed the bottle of wine which was included in the £50 meal ( great value ) we added on onion rings, which were good, but not required when we saw the amount of food. We then had the sticky toffee pudding, which we both agreed was the best we’ve ever had. My new favourite restaurant in Dumfries.
