Came to you due to a recommendation from a person who put up post on the coeliac facebook page about the hitching post in Dumfries and put up your menu up. We were going on holiday to Dumfries in a few weeks time. So I booked a table and I couldn’t wait to come. We couldn’t make our minds up what to eat took us 10 minutes to decide off the menu. The food was fantastic especially because most of the menu was gluten free and my husband was shocked. I wish there was one in Wales to go to.

Very good overall. It would be nice if the BBQ sauce was in a wee dish and not in sachets. Excellent friendly servers.

Everything great, maybe a little more choice on the lunch menu, but I realise that it is a set price so probably limited to what can be offered. Will be back again and again

Was disappointed that was charged £2.45 for pot of hot water as no fruit it mint tea available. Otherwise food was enjoyed by all in the company. Would recommend to others.

Overall a pleasant experience. I put my handbag on the floor against the wall and I noticed it very sticky when I got home. Need to pull the tables out when washing the floors.

Found the restaurant very short staffed and under pressure. Waited nearly half an hour before a drinks order was taken. Adults’ burger was exact same small size as a kids’ burger. The pulled pork was ok, but don’t think it went well on a burger. Didn’t appreciate rotten salad leaves and soggy tomato on the burgers either. The side salad at least was fresh.
