Details

Really good pub food; comfortable seating; real ale and real chips!

Cavens is a busy town centre pub with a reputation built on the quality of its ales, its great pub grub and its customer service. The pub was renovated and extended a few years ago. This gives a dedicated restaurant area, an extended bar area, new kitchens and toilets. The new facilities have placed Cavens firmly at the top of the pub trade in the South of Scotland. However, it should be noted that they are not licensed for children.

It has been the outstanding cask ale pub in Dumfries since it opened in 2003. Cavens lifted the title of “Dumfries & Stewartry CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year” in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009,2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2009 and 2010 it was also Pub of the Year for South of Scotland & Northern Ireland and runner-up in CAMRA’s Scotland & NI Pub of the Year competition. The bar has 5 ‘house ales’ and up to 5 guest beers drawn from a widely varied range of breweries from north and south of the border. It has a “customer request” system which involves regulars in selecting beers on order.

Cavens is renowned for serving up a superb range of great-value meals between 11.30am and 9.00pm each day except Monday (Sun from 12.30pm).  Make a point of looking at the daily “specials sheets”.
