Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having visited previously I knew what to expect. Tasty ice cream and relatively decent price point. Ordered two waffles and 2 coffees (lattes) had to remind the lady we had ordered coffee as she forgot to make and fetch over. Waffle and ice cream was...delicious but while sat at table we looked at sauce sachets. Lots well past best date- even the mayonnaise.More

Went for lunch today,ordered 2BLT’s and a bacon roll Was asked twice if we wanted white or brown bread for BLT’s but said both times we wanted rolls ,the young lady who served us seemed very unsure When our lunch came the BLT’s were on...white bread not rolls,the bread was soggy,the bacon cold and there was half a cherry tomato on each and a small amount of lettuce. The bacon roll was good We then had ice cream,which although nice the portion looked small as two of us received ours in a medium sized tub but the third was in a small tub so the servings looked uneven,if indeed the scoop sizes were the same We didn’t say anything at the time as we felt a bit sorry for the young lady who served us as she seemed out of her depth It was disappointing and not cheapMore

Over the years we have been many times in a summer season to Drummuir, the ice cream in my opinion is way better than the other competitor in Dumfries and Galloway. Today we ventured there again in the sweltering heat for our weekly treat, we...opted for banana splits which were absolutely delicious and worth every penny, the cherry ice cream here is to die for so I had a cheeky cone for the way home also. We were saddened to hear that this will the last year that we will be able to indulge at Drummuir so we wish you all the best for the future and thank you for years of fantastic ice cream and service.More

Very rude and abrupt: did we not see the sign that no hot food was available? In a dim foyer? Well, pardon me all over the place. And charging for the use of a kids’ play area? Ugh! Bye, bye.More

i visited drummuir today as i have done since it opened and sadly due to who i believe us the owner of the premises it will be the final time. After spending £26 on ice cream she confronted my family i front of a packed...playground to accuse us of not paying the entry to the park and for entering the wrong way. Needless to say i informed her that indeed we had both paid and entered correctly and i was spoken to in a rude and unprofessional manner. In fact after she left our table three families came over to say how rude she had been. She left us feeling like we had done something wrong and spoiled what should have been a lovely day!More
