Enjoy the Vine Restaurant for wonderful evening dining in superb surroundings. We use the local butchers T Elliot & Sons for our meat. Fruit & veg is from a local Dumfries Supplier Our fish is fantastic Haddock straight from the North Atlantic through our suppliers to us.

Our famous Stornoway Blackpudding is prepared & sent direct from Stornoway by Charles Macleod on Stornoway. Cant get better than that!

Overall we try very hard to maintain a very high standard of food but try it for yourselves you wont be disappointed.
