Stopped here for lunch trying to keep out of lousy stormy weather, luckily managed to get one remaining table quickly. Good tip from TripAdvisor as it looks just like a basic cafe but the food is honestly outstanding for the price. Locally sourced smoked haddock, poached egg on tattie scone was incredible. Top marks to the chef! Just loses a point for the fat chip on the floor under our table, which I trod on.

We visited Driftwood for a family lunch on 3rd April 2018. We had reserved a table which was at the door and was a bit drafty. As all other tables were taken (although not all reserved prior to being taken) there was no option to move. The reason we picked this restaurant was their new veggie/vegan menue which we saw on trip advisor. Unfortunately the menu has been removed (which has not been updated on their facebook page) and there was only one vegan option. My daughter had the vegan Puy Lentil and Bean ChillI which as good as was the other meals. Would go again but disappointed about their change in menue.

Went to Driftwood in Stranraer with friends today for lunch. It was a bitterly cold day, but once inside it was warm and the staff were all smiles and welcoming.
The menu was varied and the food was well cooked, nicely presented and delicious. Despite the generous portions, we couldn't resist the desserts and we weren't disappointed!
From four very happy customers who will be back soon, thank you!

Came in with a large group today and once again had delicious food at a reasonable price. Best value is the wine by the bottle! Love this place. Well done everyone x

I called in today for the first time, to try the new vegan menu which launched this morning. I had a lovely warm welcome on arrival!

The vegan options are interesting and all very appealing. In the end I chose the puy lentil and bean chilli with garlic bread. It was yum!!! And just the right level of spiciness on a freezing cold day.

The restaurant was full when I left at around 1.15pm so I recommend booking in advance.
