*Charles Rennie Mackintosh heavily influenced the Arts and Crafts Movement which was deployed by the architects who designed the Garden “Cities” of Eastriggs and Gretna. His distinctive style was prevalent in the unique Government pubs and coffee houses built during and after WW1.

Group bookings and discounts on request.

We strive to use fresh Scottish produce and our meals are cooked in house.
