Cavens Arms information
Engaging staff, 10 real ales on tap, and a warm contented buzz make this a legendary Dumfries pub. Generous portions of typical pub nosh backed up by a long list of more adventurous daily specials make it one of the town’s most enjoyable places to eat too. It gets packed at weekends but they still try and find a table for all.
If you were going to move to Dumfries, you’d make sure you were within a block or two of here. There's no food on Monday but the pub's still open.
