    Dumfries restaurants take their food seriously

    This part of Scotland has a proud food heritage, and visitors can explore this on the Dumfries & Galloway Food Trail, which takes in a wealth of local artisan food producers and breweries. The haggis here has been voted as the best in Scotland and you'll find it on the menu of the traditional Scottish restaurants in Dumfries, as well as the gastropubs. It's meaty, moist and wonderfully moreish and is always served for Burns Night with neeps and tatties. Those who love pudding often follow it with fruit-studded Clootie pudding, served with a dram of whiskey and a dollop of clotted cream. Look out for other local specialities on the Dumfries restaurant menus such as Scottish beef, scallops and langoustines and the famous Cream o' Galloway ice-cream.

    You can find great value food at the restaurants in Dumfries

    Visitors often comment on how well priced the menus are in the Dumfries restaurants, bars and cafes. As a university town, many of the eateries offer affordable food that is still of excellent quality. If you want to eat at a high-end restaurant in Dumfries, you can still find excellent deals especially if you eat at lunch or in the 'early bird' period between 4pm and 6pm, when fixed price menus and other specials are on offer. If you're looking to stick to a budget, look out for venues which allow you to bring your own wine for a reasonable corkage charge. There's plenty of variety in this friendly, accommodating town where the locals are keen to share their love of great Scottish food!

    Which of the restaurants in Dumfries are particularly popular?

    Crumb in the town centre is a classy eaterie with an international menu and a particularly good reputation for burgers... including a haggis burger! It also has plenty of delicious pizza and pasta options, with decadent desserts and a great drinks menu. Another hot town centre favourite is the Urban Grill with a great range of pub classics and steaks. The pan-fried seabass served with onion and mustard mash and white wine sauce is a favourite house speciality. No matter which restaurant in Dumfries you want to try, just remember to avoid the queues by booking in advance with Quandoo.
