We (my husband, 7-year old daughter and I) were staying at the Holiday Inn in Dumfries and were recommended to try The Swan for our evening meal. After a short picturesque walk (10 minutes approximately) we arrived at The Swan and received a very warm welcome by the staff. The surroundings were lovely and clean and the log burner was... More

Not been here for a while. Food was tasty and filled us up. Was great that kids meals were brought with our starters. I did think the pudding for my daughter would be brought out first also but not an issue. Starters were a good portion, portion of garlic bread wirth extra - some places are the same price for...

Having been here on several occasions it's known in the local area as being a hit or a miss. When we visited we were a group of 12. We had to chase a drinks order up twice, we could see our drinks sitting however staff were not serving them. Let's cut to chase and keep this short and sweet. 6... More

This is always a busy with parties for birthdays ect. Food is very good they always manage to find us a seat. Might be an idea to book at weekends. Very good place that caters well for children.

We visited today (3rd October) at lunchtime. My friend has had an operation and is in a wheelchair with a leg support for her leg, which is in a brace. The staff were wonderful, finding us a table in a sunny window overlooking the garden, where she could sit comfortably and not be in anyone's way. We were served our... More

I had roast lamb which had the tiniest piece of lamb leg on the plate and a not very appealing veg mix with a soggy Yorkshire pudding and my wife had the vegetable... More
