Visiting the Dark Sky Observatory and looking for a place to eat on way down from Glasgow. We took a detour from the road to Dalmellington to eat here and were not disappointed. The dining area is clean and cosy and the waitress was helpful and smiling. The food seemed to be locally sourced and had good fish options which... More

Thank you for your comments & glad you enjoyed your meal. Not sure why you did not get an empty bowl for the shells or finger bowl as this is normal practise for Kirkmichael Arms. Next time you're down do try our desserts as they are all home made. It is advisable to book if visiting over the weekend. More

We were staying locally at Cloncaird castle and this was the local pub. We had dinner here on Christmas Eve with my family. Lovely food, good price and friendly staff. Children not allowed in the bar area but are allowed in the restaurant area. Would return .

We were at the second sitting and all the things on the menu were still available. Good planning in the kitchen. Staff very friendly... More

My parents, my fiancé and I were on our way back to Glasgow after visiting our wedding venue (Dalduff Farm) we all fancied some 'pub grub' and headed to the Kirkmichael Arms. It was a whole lot more than pub grub! The presentation of the food was high end restaurant standards, the taste was out of this world! I don't... More
