We had a divine meal here on our way south from Edinburgh. Every dish was delicious and the marmalade bread and butter pudding was the perfect ending to a fantastic dinner. Highly recommend the restaurant!!!

You came, you ate, you liked it. We source our Belted Galloway steaks from Kilnford Barns Farm in Dumfries and we think they're the best as well. Many thanks for finding us here in Hightae. Cheers, M&M, The Hightae Inn.

Geoff - we're DG11 1JS. Care if using satnav though, as it'll lead you along some pretty wretched wee lanes. Best to follow directions on our website. Cheers M&M, The Hightae Inn.

Description
A great little Restaurant with rooms open for Evening Suppers 5 nights a week (closed Mondays & Tuesdays) serving locally sourced home cooked food to order in our cosy lounge bar. As we only have a limited number of covers and the table is yours for the night, booking really is essential.
