Visited twice recently for some pub grub and Hadoop meal on both occasions. Menu has plenty to offer with the added bonus of smaller portions at a lower price - this is good if you decide you can mange three courses- as full size portion is rather large.

This hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the Gretna Gateway shopping centre, so very handy for lunch. The food is very good, traditional steak pie, like your Granny would make. Good choice on the menu & decent portions. Friendly & efficient staff, serving lots of locals, which is always a good sign. (The décor is old fashioned, but...

The double room we got was so small we wouldn't have been able to take in our cases. The room was so heavily sprayed with chemicals I nearly choked. Had...

Staff were all friendly & room tastefully decorated but the bathroom was small. Too much furniture in room - couldn't move chair to see TV & little room for baggage Overlooking rooftop The evening meal was OK except the sweets were expensive for the quantity served. Breakfast could have been better – mushrooms were curled up.
