Dining and Bars

The only thing that grows here is grass, so Dumfries and Galloway is famous for its Dairy Produce, Beef & Lamb & a wide variety of Seasonal Game and Fish, which I use to create both traditional Scottish favourites, such as my Galloway Steak and Ale Pie or Cheesecake with a Compote of Local Berries, alongside more contemporary international dishes, such as Gravad Lax, Chanterelle & Ewe's Cheese Risotto or Pigeon Breast on Puy Lentil Casserole.

Courtyard Bistro

Wikipedia: "A bistro is, in its original Parisian incarnation, a small restaurant serving moderately priced meals. Bistros are defined mostly by the foods they serve - home cooking with robust earthy dishes and slow-cooked foods." Highlight: our Daily Special Menus feature the best local produce our suppliers can provide on any given day, such as locally-caught venison, locally-picked chanterelles and locally-smoked salmon.

Decent hotel, well located but needs some TLC

24/01/2016 Les F, Glasgow, United Kingdom

Stayed here for one night in a "Super King" room. This hotel was once quite a high end one and has seen better days since we used to live in the town. The positives are that the room was a good size,... more

Owner Response
Aileen_McGhie, Owner at BEST WESTERN Station Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Les F Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback re Station Hotel. I am sorry you were disappointed. As I said in my response to your review on the Best Western website, I am continuing through a programme of re-furbishment. I wonder if you actually stayed in the hotel in the period when you worked here? The rooms were mostly very basic but met expectations of the day. My Dad introduced en-suite bathrooms where there had mostly been none! Were you here in the 1970s when Dumfries was a bustling town with lots of industry? The Courtyard bar downstairs had the best jukebox in town and was bursting with baby boomers, while their parents were in the bar upstairs with all the sales reps or along in the "dining room" having Chateaubriand and Crepes Suzettes! It was glorious, wasn't it? But there is less going on in Dumfries these days. We mostly find that people like the improvements we are making, so I'm sorry if these are not to your liking. I will sort the towel thing! Thank you for saying nice things about the staff. Please come again. Kind regards!
