Gather named as one of top 100 romantic restaurants in UK


The online booking system OpenTable has revealed that Dumfries and Galloway restaurant Gather is one of the UK’s most romantic restaurants.  The list has been created by analysing over one million diner reviews and describes the restaurants as ‘quintessential Valentine’s Day dining experiences’.

Owner and Creative Director Vicki McConchie comments ‘we’re thrilled to have been included in the UK wide roundup of top 100 romantic restaurants.  When we were designing the building and menu, our diner’s experience was absolutely paramount. We’re lucky to be situated with stunning views and the restaurant capitalises on this. In addition to our setting, we wanted our evening guests to have a different experience to our daytime guests and so offer different napkins,  turn the lights down and even have table lamps to create a more romantic setting”.

Owner and Managing Director Duncan McConchie says ‘we couldn’t agree more that Gather is one of the most romantic restaurants. We’re also honoured to be the only restaurant in Southern Scotland included, putting our region on the map for both its food and beautiful location. Our menu, aesthetics and setting create the most perfect date night experience’.
