This Inn was very quiet when we visited for an evening meal, and the service was friendly and prompt. The menu consists of standard pub food, and is perfectly OK, but nothing special. The vegetables could have been more imaginative than frozen (or tinned) peas and carrots. Prices are average.

Went here for a couple of drinks before heading to the shopping outlet, the staff and the regulars were a great bunch of people and made us feel very welcome. 2nd day visit we had lunch, the food was very nice and very well presented and a reasonable price

Omg... our wedding night meal would have kept a small army going. Lovely food, lovely staff. From booking our table to arriving and finding our fizz on ice, couldn't fault it.

We decided to come for drinks here rather than visit over coffee at the Gretna Outlets. Staff were lovely and we would recommend over the noise of the outlet eateries.

Staff were friendly and welcoming. I asked for vegetables with my meal instead of the chips- I got chips... The leek and pasta bake wasn't to my taste. After a couple of mouthfuls of soggy pasta, I gave up. Partner enjoyed his meat but veg was tasteless. He finished off my pasta... I was really disappointed as we visited due... More

Traditional corner pub literally across the road from the Gretna Gateway Outlet Centre. Menu is pub grub as you would expect and far better value than anything you will find among the shops and cafes opposite. Scampi and burger were both good and the chips were excellent. Haggis, neeps and tatties were delicious. Big portions too. Staff were very friendly,... More

Popped in for a drink whilst in the Area, staff and patrons were friendly and spoke away to us. We're going to return for food in the evening but changed our plans later on. Would visit again if in the area again.

We often visit here for lunch when we visit the nearby outlet centre usually on a Saturday or Sunday . Always busy but not too busy, good quality pub grub at reasonable prices, well worth a visit
