|My partner and I called into this delightful public house whilst on a day trip to Dumfries on 12.11.13. The pub was welcoming on entry and the staff were very pleasant when we got to the bar. We only intended on staying for a quick pint but ended up staying for a couple of hours and had some dinner while we were there. The haggis, neeps and tatties I had were superb and my partner enjoyed his haddock goujons too. The real ale they served was excellent as well. Would call in here again next time we decide to come to Dumfries again.|

|Good Food Excellent Service but BEWARE:- do NOT phone the listed number (0871....) as I did. 15 mins @ 10p per minute with NO response..Equates to £6.00 an hour for NOTHING |

|Probably the home of some of the best kept real ale in Britain. I have rarely had better. We had already eaten before we arrived, which was a pity as the food looked great. Still, we had some fairy cakes to soak it up. Friendly and pleasant staff and a cracking picture of Elvis as Rabbie Burns topped it off nicely.|

|Paid a flying visit today, as I had a train to catch, and only had time for a swift pint. I was a little disconcerted to be asked if I was eating and then firmly led to the back of the pub where I was allocated a seat: I hadn't expected that at a pub with the accolade of the local CAMRA branch Pub of the Year for 2012.|
In retrospect and having given my experience a little thought, since the beer was very good, it was tea time so a few people were eating, the pub itself was immaculate and the plentiful staff were friendly, polite and clearly very busy (although I was only there 15 minutes 5 different staff spoke with me) I can see why the rating is so high and would like to return with enough time to eat (the food indeed did look good) whilst knowing what to expect.

|Must confess to being slightly put off as I thought I'd entered a posh restaurant rather than a pub. I said I was only there for the beer and was directed to the rear where I found 10 handpumps featuring a mix of interesting English and Scottish beers. I only had time for a pint - chose the Ayr beer - very well kept. I got the hang of the place listening to what was going on and indeed it seems a very friendly, well run place. Must go back sometime! |
