Castle Douglas and Glenkens, Dumfries & Galloway
15/05/2021: Very friendly staff and good food


Three Hills Coffee Co.

Selkirkshire, Scottish Borders
12/06/2021: Real asset to the town. While you can sit outside, the proprietors have created a lovely interior making for a relaxed atmosphere and a great place to meet others. Your hosts are sincerely welcoming, friendly, accomodating, knowledgeable and skilful in preparing your coffee. Nice range of coffees in various formats; you can of course get other drinks, as well as some tasty food! What stands out is the quality of the coffee - sourced with care, and they roast their own beans. You are likely to have one of the best coffees you have had...ever.
02/05/2021: First visit following recommendation and was welcomed by friendly staff and a great Long Black Coffee & Hot Chocolate for my wife.


No. 1 Fleet Street

Dee, Dumfries & Galloway
31/05/2021: Lovely meal with friends in lovely surroundings. Quality of the food and the friendly service was outstanding. We will certainly be back and will recommend to others.
30/05/2021: Our first “real” meal out since lockdown, and what a treat! Sunday lunch, roast beef, so often a disappointment here was a delight. The scallop and black pudding starter, and key lime pie (very pleasantly looking “individual” not a slice) were both delicious. Excellent service, airy bright dining room and good value too. Thank you.


Jinty-B's Cakes & Tearoom

Mid and Upper Nithsdale, Dumfries & Galloway
06/06/2021: A perfect place for lunch. Very friendly and a good menu choice. We noticed some people buying cakes to have later in the day - what a great idea
01/06/2021: We called I here for a quick coffee and a chunk of cake. I had cake Amy wife had the soup of the day which she tells me was amazing. The cake was lovely and the service was ace. If you are I. The area its well worth calling in to sample their fab food.


Claudios Restaurant

Annandale North, Dumfries & Galloway
31/05/2021: Adequate, staff were good, food was ok, a little pricey and definitely missing something. Maybe needs a second visit in case this was an off night for them.
16/05/2021: First time back at my favourite restaurant last night since pre Covid. And once again didn’t disappoint. Absolutely top class scran. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal here. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The 25min drive from Dumfries is worth every second. Love eating here.

Hunters Stables

Jedburgh and District, Scottish Borders
25/05/2021: Was staying near this village for a few days and found this gem! Really interesting story of how it came to be there. Absolutely fantastic food and excellent service. The waiters were all lovely and so lovely to my mum. Really great atmosphere. The chefs must be top notch , coz the food was brilliant. We absolutely loved this place and cannot wait to return. Good luck and success to you.

Lochar, Dumfries & Galloway
07/06/2021: Had a lovely meal here with my boyfriend during our trip away. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and the main portions were perfect which meant there was room for dessert (which I could have eaten two of because the tiramisu was heaven). There was plenty to choose from on the menu and the pizza/pasta deal was very good value for money. The atmosphere was lovely and the place was very cosy.
05/06/2021: Visited Bruno’s this week for a romantic meal on a trip away. Could only book a table quite late, so clearly it is a very popular restaurant- and rightly so! It is cosy and traditional inside, staff are friendly but do not pester you. There is an extensive menu with plenty of vegetarian options and a 2 course deal option. It wasn’t fast food, but I preferred that as it didn’t feel rushed at all, and we were served some warm bread while we waited. The food was delicious. The price was very reasonable for the quality and experience we had. Wonderful evening. Thank you all so much!Photo details - margarita pizza and banoffee pie (lasagne and sticky toffee pudding behind)


Firebrick Brasserie

Leaderdale and Melrose, Scottish Borders
13/06/2021: On a busy Saturday night my wife and myself were treated to an excellent meal and the service was great
05/06/2021: This was my husband and I's first venture out to a restaurant since lockdown lifted and, boy, was it worth it!A shared snack of prawns pil pil served with home made bread and butter was the start of an excellent meal. A trout and crab starter for him and expertly charred asparagus, romesco and chimichurri for me followed. The absolute star of the show was a perfectly cooked fillet of halibut with wilted gem lettuce, spring peas and cockle beurre blanc. Beautiful! A plate of small puddings for him (amazing) and cheese for me ended an absolutely delightful meal.The restaurant's tables were well spaced out and I felt COVID safe. The only issue I had was with one of the waitresses who was continually pulling her face mask down to talk to customers and other staff members. A small matter but an important one in the current climate. Wouldn't stop me from going back though.


Abbey Cottage

Abbey, Dumfries & Galloway, <20£
23/05/2021: Stopped off here twice, lovely food and a good choice of coffees. Staff are friendly and food and drinks are reasonably priced. Sweetheart Abbey is across the road and the village is the base for Criffel and the Waterloo monument. Don't miss it.
17/05/2021: Welcoming, tea rooms. Lots of sweet and savoury things. Husband had toasty. I had a milkshake and a piece of Victoria Sponge. Perfect, perfect,wow.Staff so helpful.Parking at the side. Next to Sweetheart Abbey.Accessible toilet in car park. Toilets are also inside the cafe.Covid arrangements excellent.On a bus route.

Cavens Arms

Nith, Dumfries & Galloway
13/06/2021: My wife and I turned up unannounced early Sat evening on a recommendation from the tapas Bank Bar along the road as it was full (kudos to them). The manager at the Caven's Arms said they were busy but said he could fit us in. We said we wouldn't be staying too long so all was good. We were seated promptly at the window. The drinks order came very quickly as did our nachos starters. We did wait a wee bit for the main course which was ok. I ordered the three bean chilli vegan option which was a bit plain tbh. My wife threw me some peppers from her dish which livened it up a bit.All in all a nice wee stop-off with friendly service.
09/06/2021: We came across this gem while on a short break. The service was top notch from the minute we arrived. Coved restrictions were first class. The food was excellent, hot plates hot food. A very good choice of menus. The sea bass was so tasty, two fillets what a plateful. Scampi first class . We were so impressed we returned the next day. Highly recommend.
