About Dumfries Arms Hotel
Our relaxing restaurant offers a unique dining experience with comfortable booth seating and menus that will cater for all tastes and appetites.
No matter how hungry you are, we will have an option for you in our restaurant. Why not choose from our tempting main menu which has some of our tried and tested dishes on it, along with a selection of the chef’s specials for that day?
Not that hungry? During the day we offer our light bite menu, providing you with a selection of lighter dishes to choose from. For those looking to eat earlier in evening, we have our early bird menu. Something for everyone and real home cooked food at its best. Should you have any dietary requirements then please let us know and we will be happy to accommodate.
In our private dining room or at one of our larger restaurant tables, we can offer parties of 10 or more a selection of our favourite dishes on a slightly reduced menu. Individual requirements can be discussed and the option to have two or three courses can also be made available. At the Dumfries Arms we pride ourselves on our flexible approach.
Unfortunately, the email link ([email protected]) at the ResDiary website was broken, so I was unable to amend the booking as I had wished. I emailed Reception to request a change, but received no acknowledgment. The staff did well to serve 8 of us within the limited time at our disposal. The Fish & Chips went down well with the children, but the Roast Beef was very disappointing: only the gravy giving the dish any flavour at all. Most disappointing was the lack of any gluten-free dish, despite having advised the need at the time of booking. It really doesn’t take long to produce a simple jus instead of flour-thickened gravy: my wife’s “Roast Beef with all the trimmings” ended up comprising only dry, tasteless, over-cooked meat and over-cooked broccoli. Could do better!
My husband liked his veg lasagne. I found the lamb a bit ordinary, too much gravy and would have liked more veg or salad. Puddings very good.
Lovely meal, great service and worthy of comment.
First time for a meal and will not be the last. Please take Staff and great food.
Friendly staff and good food
Very disappointed with my meal. Cheap looking and tasting certainly not worth the price.
Couldn’t have asked for better service/food. Enjoyable evening for me and my partner.
The reduced menu is disappointing. The change from Heinz tomato ketchup to a cheap, vinegary brand was a shock. That, coupled with the reduced menu, gives the impression the DA is in financial trouble. 🙄 Lack of vegan options despite 7% of UK population following a plant based diet. This is limiting your clientele. Mm the food I ate was nice but I had one choice of starter and one choice of main course. Which really isn't a "choice" then. The chef did manage to provide a vegan sweet which was nice.
My booking was for four adults all of whom thoroughly enjoyed lunch at your establishment. Will return.
staff were warm and helpful, even tho they were extremely busy as a wedding was on at the same time. we all had a wonderful meal and will definitely be back.
Lovely afternoon. Enjoyed our meal and surroundings
good food, good service
Poor food selection itison guests. Food hygiene poor with no tongs for bread. Staff and guests handling bread which is stored under buffet table. Yoghurt in a bowl open to flies etc. No cooler for yoghurt, milk, breakfast juice.
Firstly the menu was a let down compared to what was offered online. The waitresses knew nothing with regards to the food or service in general. The steaks were tough and tasteless and no steak knives. Expected a lot more from a popular hotel......
Although a lovely setting it is awkward having to walk through a wedding to get to the restaurant, poor lay out... server was pleasant but new so couldn’t give us information we asked for about the menu and at £140 for 4 people the food was mediocre at best. Staff need training and food must be improved. Expensive drinks.
Had a great meal here on Sunday night staff were great will definitely be back soon
Had a lovely birthday lunch. Staff were friendly and unimposing. Will certainly frequent this establishment more often in the future.
We had a lovely evening and the service was amazing Thanks again for a great night
Had a great stay with fantastic food and a really friendly service.
Had a lovely meal last night. food great. Service great. Will be back soon.
Very good restaurant for casual or semi formal dining.
We had a lovely meal and drinks after. Plenty of choices on the menu which made deciding what to eat difficult. Lovely atmosphere, will definitely be back 😊
This was the best meal out that we had in ages.
Sadly we didn’t enjoy our meal. The goats cheese implied it was crumbled and not depp fried. I chose the beef which was very poor. The steal pie was lovely. Although the sticky toffee pud was extremely tasteful my daughter’s was served in a soup quantity of sauce. Overall a disappoint experience. The DA has been a place of choice when visiting the area but no more.
