Facilities

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.

Hello I was sorry to read that you had such a terrible experience at my hotel. In particular, I regret that I do not appear to have made you feel welcome. Re the car parking, it was unfortunate that I had to ask several people to move their cars that evening as we were so busy. Residents arriving to check in were extremely frustrated to find that they could not park because some cars were in more than 1 space. As per our Guest Directory, we are happy to offer a complementary glass of ice of ice for your room, but are unable to offer unlimited jugs and buckets of ice throughout the evening every evening free of charge. We do sell wine at the bar. Generally, bars and hotels are required as a condition associated with the granting of the premises license to prevent consumption of alcoholic beverages on their premises that are not purchased from the licensee, or risk penalties such as fines or revocation of the alcohol license. I'm afraid i have not really understood your issue with me not being around every time you came in or went out. I hope that you found the rest of my staff friendly and that everything else about your visit to Dumfries was enjoyable enough to compensate for my misdemenors. Sincere good wishes to you.
