Warm and friendly staff greeting with an exciting twist to a menu which encouraged you to try something a little different. Brilliant well cooked food from locally sourced ingredients, you have to wait but that makes it all the better. Good things come to those who wait! Booking recommended.

Whilst on holiday in the area took the family for meal around 6pm. The welcome was curt and the service tardy and inattentive. The childs meal at £7 was disgusting in content and presentation. Two of the party ordered the battered haddock and chips - it turned out to be a four ounce breaded fillet which looked and tasted like it had been sourced from the value range at Iceland as had the chips.The rest of the food was mediocre. Needless to say we didnt sample the dessert menu at £7 a pop. Give it a miss.

After 200 miles of driving through a car wash, the Kenbridge Hotel was a welcome stop. The landlord is very welcoming and the hotel looks beautifully clean. A good selection of drinks (not tried) and wonderful tea and coffee served in decent pots.
Although we didn't eat, the menu looks good and at a very reasonable price.
Beatiful location alongside a spectacular river and with outside (summer) tables and garden. I wish we had booked to stay here than at our destination.

Stopped in on Sunday on way back from Wales as we were only 20 miles from home and would save cooking after a long drive. We were 15 mins early as they did not start cooking till 5.30pm. First beer I asked for was off and had to take second choice.
I had steak pie and wife had roast beef dinner - both of which were excellent hearty and tasty dishes. We also had lovely sweets.... the fresh fruit pavlova would have fed two. Really good and will be back.

The best carvery lunch in SW Scotland I reckon, and I've tried a few.

I love roast dinners and you can tell from mine-host Davie Pattersons build that he does too! Never trust a skinny chef!

Fab portions, help yourself to the trimmings. The kids is extra good value since my 6 and 5 year olds can eat a roast dinner like grown ups.

Lovely place, great food, fab host and service, good proper beer, friendly, open fires. Look, just go!! Better book for Sunday though, it's very popular.

We camped at the Ken Bridge for 2 nights and would recommend it to anyone. Really is a fantastic site in a beautiful setting and right next to a pub! Brilliant!
Firstly the staff, very friendly and helpful!
The site itself, very pleasant, tidy and well maintained.
The location, right on the water of Ken... My boyfriend was devastated he hadn't packed any fishing gear as fishing on the bank is included with the cost of camping. A short drive to castle douglas and lots of lovely walking routes. We took a trek up to the Red Kite viewing platform only to discover on returning the to site that the kites had been flying over head there all day... Typical!!
The site facilities, adequate for the small site and kept clean and tidy.
Overall we were incredibly happy with our stay here and will be stopping again should we find ourselves up that way.
