In town for a Queen of the South v. Hibernian fixture.
This was going to be the first point of call. As it happens, it was the second. On a miserable day, many of the 1,500 thirsty Spoonburners in town made for this establishment. It's the reigning CAMRA Dumfries & Galloway area champeen and there looked to be a good selection. However, it was far too crowded to even think of a pint, so we reluctantly went elsewhere. The dining area is far larger than the drinking area and that was just about full as well. From the brief glimpses of the plates, the food looked good. I'll definitely give it a go when Hibs are next in town, in January... when the Cup-winning bubble might have burst and there may be fewer fans.

Don't know where the expensive phone number came from.

I have just looked up the number which is 01387 252896 and, except at madly busy times, they answer quickly and professionally.

Excellent pub, worth visiting. Have found the staff very helpful and friendly, whilst both the ale and food are amongst the best.

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
