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.

Dear Tony S On behalf of the team, I'd like to thank you very much for your lovely comments - it really makes everyone very proud to be described as "wonderful"!. Also, it's very helpful for us when a guest reassures Trip Advisor readers that the hotel is so quiet despite being near the station. I'm really sorry about your breakfast - I think we must have served you the wrong plate by mistake as people normally comment that they won't be needing any lunch after one of our breakfasts. When you come back, please introduce yourself and we will make extra sure the same thing doesn't happen again. In the mean time, best wishes from us all.

Dear chrissandra51 Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay and your visit to Dumfries so much. Glad you like what we've done to Room 17. The easy chairs make quite a difference in a hotel room, don't they? Means you don't have to lie on the bed to relax and watch a bit of telly! I do hope you'll come back and see us again. Kind regards to you from everyone here.
