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.

Unwelcoming

11/04/2018 Sandy S, Dumfries, United Kingdom

Went to the bar for a pub lunch (fish and chips etc - quite acceptable). On entry, woman at reception looks at my companion and me, and simply says “yes?” “Lunch for two, please” “This way” pointin... more

I'm sorry you were not happy with the customer service today, sir. You were the first lunch guests today, certainly but we had had people at most tables by the time you left and yes, I was working on my own. In my experience it is customary to ask for a card if someone wants to open a tab. Actually, when you say you were trying to start a conversation, I was asking you to let the friend who was buying you lunch concentrate on getting his pin number in as he had been having difficulty with it, if you recall. Glad you enjoyed your fish and chips.

Traditional hotel in a good location

09/04/2018 C0astalWalker, Woking

I chose this hotel as it is close to the railway station and I travelled to the area by train so I knew I would not have far to go! First impressions are good, as it's an attractive building right opp... more

Hello Coastal Walker, I hope you have been enjoying your walks in the Newton Stewart area. Thank you very much for your description of the hotel and very positive commentary. I note that you were disappointed that we only served food in the Courtyard Bistro. We do serve at lunch time in the Garden Room and also on warmer evenings - maybe next time you are here! All the best for your walking trips.

Great hotel yards from the railway station

20/03/2018 David H, Sheringham, United Kingdom

I chose this hotel because you come out of the railway station and cross the road to the hotel. Also it is just 10 minutes walk to the town centre or there are plenty of buses. My room was very comfor... more

Fine for a night

20/03/2018 wcgibbons, Galway, Ireland

The location is excellent, as I was getting the train to the town and the hotel is right beside the station. The room itself was clean, and a weird mixture of old and modern. The en suite was a good... more
