We had lunch there while visiting the area. Great choice of food even for me on a gluten free diet. Food was cooked to order so was very fresh. Service was excellent the waitress very knowledgeable about what was in the food. Would recommend

We often break our journey along the Solway at the Belted Galloway. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and the tea/coffee delicious. A reliable refreshment stop.

The Belted Galloway Visitor Centre offers Newton Stewart and area a facility for both visitors and locals. Situated in the main town car park directly behind the main street, the facility has its own 12 space car park, full disabled access with toilets and it is all on one level. The facility is privately owned and receives no public money so has to operate at a profit, despite this we offer free information and stage community events on an ongoing basis. In addition to Tourist Information the facility also provides heritage, historical and community information by wall boards, video and our "tartan history" on the roof and walls.
