I didn't stay here(but i have been told by friends that the rooms are very good), but called in for a family meal on Saturday. Really pleased we did. The new owners are doing a great job. The Tennants lager was as good as Tennants can be! And i was told it was cracking pint of Best. Our parents arrived...

Really disappointed this evening, bar is now closed which is where we previously had our meals. Sat in the other room for food where people were playing pool, playing the fruit machine, and the football was on the tv all whilst we were trying to have a relaxed meal. Staff were lovely, menu was disappointing and food was very average....

We are very disappointed you had a negative experience with us we do try our best to accommodate everyone. It is true the rear of the hotel has been closed to open the bar, front foyer and dining room in the front of the hotel which gives people options of where to sit and eat as not everyone likes to...

Stayed for 2 nights and had a great time. Staff very helpful, friendly and has a great casual atmosphere. The room was spacious, clean and had everything you need. Food we had during our stay was delicious and very good value for money. Nice country pub feel to the hotel. We will definitely visit again.

There doesn't seem to be a "restaurant" page for this place - so i'll put it here. We came here a few years ago and it was lovely - no longer the case. This time we were on our way to an event elsewhere, tight for time and this location was convenient. Seems to be a doss house for contractors...

I am very sorry your experience with us was so terrible it has never ever been associated as being a doss house before and feel this is quite unnecessary. The hotel is full of workmen which does not generally affect anyone who comes in as they are all very pleasant. We do offer other areas to eat in stead of...

Spotted The Galloway Arms on the A75 as we drove home from holiday and pulled over to check it out. OK, it isn't the most attractive building but it is very welcoming place, staff are great and food was excellent. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you're looking for a good feed to break your journey. Dogs are welcome too...
