Menu Sourcing Policy

Cream o’ Galloway is committed to buying local and environmentally friendly  products wherever possible.

The beef and lamb on our menu comes from our own organic farm at Gatehouse of Fleet, where we also produce our famous ice cream.

Our bacon, sausages and ham comes from Caron and Robert Stewart of Clash Farm near Port Logan, haggis is supplied by John D Owen & Son in Newton Stewart and our free range organic eggs are from Mrs McMynn’s at New Abbey.

We have used Galloway Lodge Preserves for many years, and their innovative range of chutneys and jams means there is always something new for us to tempt you with.

Our teas and coffees are Fairtrade and we are proud to stock a selection of locally produced crafts that reflect our beautiful region and the inspiring people who live and work here.

We offer an extensive range of vegetarian and gluten free menu options.

We hope you enjoy your time with us.
