We were staying locally in Kirtlebridged and were directed to the Station Inn by our B&B Landlady, who did not provide evening meals. The outward appearance and indeed the inside of the Inn don't actually prepare you for the food you will get! The menu is not overly extensive - a good sign in my view as I always feel a large menu will mean a microwave or two and there are the usual pub offerings of scampi, etc, However, we were spoiled for choice even so. I am very fond of pate so had the home made chicken liver pate to start, which was a lovely generous portion, and husband had the breaded mushrooms stuffed with cheddar and leek. We both opted for chips withour mains, which was in my case slow roast belly pork with a cider and cream sauce, and hubby's was steak and ale pie served in a pot with a flaky pastry topping, which looked light as a feather and again, a large portion of meat in the pie. My pork was 2 large pieces with perfectly crisp crackling, and the sauce was just lovely. The chips were hand cooked and again, perfect. A not too large serving of mange tout, carrots and buttery cabbage topped it off. One nice touch was the fresh flowers on every table

Prices - excellent and Chis and Alison, mein hosts were very friendly and made you welcome. if I had one criticism of this lovely little eatery it would be that the lighting in the restaurant was a bit over bright - I just like soft lighting I'm afraid, and as we were the only two in there on that Wednesday evening, it felt very impersonal, as the locals were all in the other bar ! Well done you two for an excellent standard of meal at a price that (if I lived in Kirkpatrick Fleming) would mean we would be regulars

We were staying at the Smiths and decided to try somewhere local for our evening meal. We looked at Trip Advisor and liked what we read for for the station inn.

So we had chicken stuffed with haggis, belly pork, burger and a kids sausage & chips meal. All freshly cooked and tasting superb. Great portion sizes and Chris and Alison are great hosts.

Highly recommended !

Ignore the trip advisor map as that shows another pub in Springfield near Gretna. This is on the main road and you can't miss it.

This was an unexpected gem. From passing by you'd never guess that this small and modest pub would serve the most delicious home cooked fayre. With an excellent choice of traditional meals that taste better than i can tell you! I had a homemade chicken and ham pie and if that doesnt sound too special let me tell you it was! the list of homemade desserts sounded so tempting but i was just too full to try after a more than sufficient 'small' meal! Very friendly pub. I'd highly reccommend the Station Inn

Village pub in Kirkpatrick Fleming, only half a mile from junction 21 on the M74 near Gretna.

Booked a table for 11 people for sunday lunch at only a couple of hours notice.

The Inn has a pub and a lounge. we ate in the lounge. The place is very clean but is a bit old fashieoned although comfortable enough.

The menu was quite traditional, A wide selection of scottish food buit perhaps could be more exciting.

However, the food was absolutely excellent. perfectly cooked, including nice vegetables and excellent home made chips. They had an exccelent suday roast. othere dishes included salmon, pork belly, chicken in haggis etc... everyone thought it was really good

Service was very friendly and quite fast. also its very child friendly.

Best of all was that bill came to just less than £100 for 9 adults and 2 kids!

All in all highly recommended. just off the motorway and a lot better than the service station fare.
