Good village pub, had a meal here on a quiet evening in February. They don't normally open for food on a Monday in the winter but kindly did for us. Friendly warm pub and the food was very good. Worth a visit if in the area. Set in Crossmichael, 6 miles from Castle Douglas. Would visit again.

Our son devoured a hearty steak pie with amazing pastry and lots of meat. I wanted some fish so opted for a delicious grilled fish dish with wonderful home cooked chips and a side of fresh vegetables cooked to perfection. My wife is vegetarian and was offered a simple but lovely off-menu pasta dish.

Crossmichael is one of the many villages in Dumfries and Galloway that is really just a hundred to two hundred yards of houses on either side of 'the main road'. Additionally in Crossmichael there is a towering church, a post office/village shop, and the Thistle Inn. This latter has several chairs and tables outside on its forecourt, usually alongside a...

Had a lovely meal here. Given a very warm welcome and excellent service. Pleasant dining room with a cosy ambience. Really good pub food cooked to order at a reasonable price- what more could you want? Will definitely be back next time we are up in Castle Douglas.
