Lovely small restaurant, tastefully decorated. Exceptionally friendly attentive staff. Delicious main courses and desserts, all well presented on the plate. We were lucky enough to arrive early and not booked but judging by the waiting area booking would be advisable. Definitely worth a visit!

After living in Lochmaben for 10 years we finally visited the Townhead Hotel in Lockerbie with our family. What a lovely surprise it was. All the food was really delicious and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Also the complementary Port this evening went down very well. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

We took refuge here, going North on a very wet Saturday and had an excellent lunch. My steak pie was one of the tenderest I have eaten, and herself's chicken gujons were done to perfection. We will be back.....

This is first time here today even though we stay local. The food was fantastic in a very lovely setting with friendly and efficient waiting staff. Safe to say it won't be the last time we come here even if it is just for drinks. I would highly recommend a visit.
