Blacksmiths Restaurant

Reviewed By MadDocNI - Belfast, United Kingdom

Large self service restaurant in tourist complex which has some nice, if pricey, shops.
Had pasta with vegetables for lunch, and rather odd it was, certainly not very italian in style, with overdone pasta, more akin to noodles. Flavour had a hint of the east somewhere but I was quite unable to discern what it was. Rather small helping on small plate too, designated as the "chef's special", and priced at £6.99. Decent tuna Sandwich, but not overly cheap either.
Not sure would rush back.

Highland Laddie Inn

we are situated on the beautiful Solway coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty. we try to keep our supplies local when we can. haafnet fishing in the summer brings fresh Solway salmon, sea trout and sea bass. we have a wealth of local wildlife, a vast amount of sea birds. we are also on the roman wall walk. in 2013 we also started bed and breakfast accommodation. so come and try us.

We visited the Highland Laddie for Sunday lunch. We were made very welcome and shown into the dining room, which was very pleasant . The only fault I could find was there wasn't a choice of meal for the sunday lunch , but it didn't...MoreI am sorry we don't offer an alternative to the traditional sunday lunch our kitchen is not big enough to make meals from the menu.

The Gretna Inn

Reviewed By PASTA_Mick - Preston, United Kingdom

Stopped off on the way home from Edinburgh to get something to eat and to watch Celtic beat Aberdeen. We both ordered the roast beef which was Lovely, very enjoyable. We shared a cheesecake after with ice cream and that was nice too.
There were plenty of screens in the sports bar but the jukebox was left on during the football drowning out the commentary. That was a bit annoying but not a big deal.
I'd be happy to

Thorntons

Reviewed By StuK72 - Carlisle, United Kingdom

Not sure about this place. A deceiving look about it. You go in thinking the queue is short, only to find hardly any tables available. The table we did get was so wobbly it was like eating on the Atlantic Ocean. Can’t stand that. Either fix it of throw it out. We moved, and so will everyone else. Who wants to spill hot coffee over yourself and your partner?

The Old Toll Bar Cafe

Reviewed By Alan965 - Lincoln, United Kingdom

Top value for money, with staff who are friendly and like a bit of banter despite being run off their feet when we were there. The place was busy with a great atmosphere and some of the best value good quality food we have had in many a long time.
Worth dropping in if you are visiting Gretna, and worth while taking the short detour off the motorway.
