Home cooked food of a very good standard in a small,friendly environment. I had a steak cooked to my liking which was as tender as I think i've ever had. My party of three all agreed that the meal was lovely,the wine list had enough choice to satisfy most needs and a good selection of gins was a bonus. Will... More

You came, you ate, you liked it. We source our Belted Galloway steaks from Kilnford Barns Farm in Dumfries and we think they're the best as well. Many thanks for finding us here in Hightae. Cheers, M&M, The Hightae Inn. More

Faultless Food and Faultless Staff. Each time we visit food appears to get better and better. Morag constantly changes menu and we have never been disappointed with food or changes. Visited twice in March and had different vegetarian meals (even though I am not a vegetarian) and the taste of these meals were fantastic. Our favourite dessert had been added... More

Wonderful little (6 tables) restaurant and bar and accommodation (not viewed). Best fresh food. Small but good menu. Great bar with well stocked whiskies and gins. A little hard to find but well worth it. Sat Nav recommened. 20 mins out of Lockerbie. Thanks Morag and Mark.

Many thanks for coming over and eating with us here in Hightae - we're so glad you like what we do. It'd be great to see you again. TOP TIP - Satnavs can behave wonderfully oddly at times however we're just 10 minutes from the A74(M) at Lockerbie. Head for Lochmaben/Dumfries on the A709 and then turn off for Hightae... More

Completely enjoyed every minute of our visit here. Food was delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. Very talented chef. Well worth going off the beaten track! Mark was a great host and very attentive. Restaurant is small but beautifully decorated and very cosy. We'll definitely be back!

Best food ever, all home cooked and local produce at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere being very important to us was perfect, a very homely little gem not to be missed. Loved the Gin menu too. Alan and Barbara

Stunning food, drinks and atmosphere all meld into on the best meals I've had in Scotland and the Lowlands by far. Attention to detail on the menu with whisky and drink pairing are also two major highlights of my favourite place to eat when visiting my pals in Lockerbie. Thanks for a great time from Thunder Bay Canada!
