The Green Frog Moffat

THE GREEN FROG

Fishing • Relaxing • Organic • Gardening

CAFÉ

Drop in for a morning coffee or a cup of tea in our light, airy, spacious café, and perhaps, weather permitting, take advantage of a table on the veranda where you can enjoy watching fly fishing & bait fishing at the two fishing lochans.

You might well find that you’re tempted to stop for a spot of lunch with friends and family before taking a stroll around the garden centre – we think you’ll love our homemade fayre, soup of the day, dish of the day, and tray bakes.

The little ones are catered for with their own menu, and ice lollies and soft drinks are always available!

As with the whole project at The Green Frog, we will endeavour to adapt and change, and “go with the flow” in an attempt to refine what we offer to cater as best we can for what our customers are looking for we always try to source locally – we will listen and learn and are open to constructive criticism and advice – so feel free to offer it!

 

GARDEN CENTRE

Stocked from April – October with plants that flourish in the Scottish Climate there’s always plenty of choice and some unusual plants at our garden centre at the Green Frog.

FISHING AT MOFFAT

We are a long standing clear water, spring fed lochan. We treasure our fish, which we stock from local sources and the weights range from 3lb upwards. we stock a percentage of Blue and Rainbow but we also have Browns, Brookes and Tigers. We pride ourselves on a beautiful , quality surrounding where quality not quantity of fish can be caught. Our fishery manager is usually on hand to help with any anglers questions or queries.

Our waters are clear, and run all year round, but with this advantage of clear water, our maintenance for keeping it clear of weed is continual. So every Monday and Tuesday are designated cutting days. We only cut sections making it fishable during maintenance, but this can also encourage a feeding pattern in our fish which helps any angler fishing those days.

We do have a professional angler, Sue McNiven who can come and help with expert tuition on the water and also our fishery manager can help with any problems.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert the two well stocked lochans at the Green Frog in Moffat offer an easily accessible location to enjoy fishing. We offer both fly fishing and bait fishing with barbless hooks and regardless if you are on your own or with a group of family and friends, there’s always acres of space and a warm welcome at the Green Frog.

The small town of Moffat is perfectly and conveniently situated just 2 miles from the M74, the primary route between Scotland and England. The area surrounding Moffat offers a unique undulating landscape with many hills and valleys, rivers and Lochs. This truly is the ideal base to stay a few days and explore this beautiful, gentle and almost undiscovered part of Scotland.

The Buccleuch is well renowned for its excellent food brought to you in the aptly named ‘Beef Tub Comfort Grill’. We are particularly proud of the quality and pedigree of our raw product. Wherever possible this product is sourced nearby provided it meets our quality criteria.

The hotel boasts a proud ancestry dating from 1760 which is reflected in its architecture and every effort has been made to retain some of the olde world charm. Of particular note, installed during a recent refurbishment, are the wall to wall murals depicting the hotel as it was in the early 1900’s along with decoupage on the tables incorporating hundreds of images and title deeds dating right back to 1772!

As a privately run hotel in Moffat, Dumfries & Galloway, we at the Buccleuch take the greatest care and attention to ensure that your accommodation in Moffat is relaxing and comfortable.
