Hullabaloo opened in November 1999 and is a partnership of
Claire Drysdale and Alanna Rogerson.

We are situated in a converted 18c Mill, which also houses the Robert Burns Film Theatre (the smallest in Scotland), on the banks of the River Nith.

We are only a five minute walk from Dumfries town centre and in the Summer months customers can enjoy the fantastic scenic views over the river by dining outside on our patio.


We offer a unique dining experience in a warm and vibrant atmosphere and pride ourselves in our high quality food and friendly service. Our tasty, fresh and innovative menus also include a wide selection of vegetarian fare and a frequently changing specials list. We cater for all dietary requirements and special occasions.

Since the restaurant opened we have also provided outside catering for a wide variety of events, large and small. Due to increasing demand we expanded this side of our business in 2009 and now have a seperate kitchen facility and refrigerated van purely for this purpose.

We can cater any function from weddings and private parties to corporate events. We also have the event catering contract at Threave Estate in Castle Douglas which is a fantastic function venue in beautiful surroundings, perfect for weddings and private or charity events.
