This “really excellent and ambitious gastro-pub” (which, legend has it, once gave shelter to Robbie Burns) wins high praise for the “clever” realisation of its restaurant-style menu, where a variety of quality, dry-aged steaks sits alongside a number of more “complex” options.

“Excellent, exciting, impeccable” – chef-owner Robert Macaleese, who took over in 2017, has transformed the fortunes of this 500-year-old inn, just off the A76 trunk road north of Dumfries (where national bard Rabbie Burns once reputedly took shelter). Fans tip it “especially for Belted Galloway steak” (BG being a fine local cattle breed).
