About The Steamboat Inn

Located on the picturesque Solway coastline, The Steamboat Inn offers much more than just spectacular views of the sea. This quirky spot boats a British-inspired menu, and the dishes you’ll find here and up there with the best in Dumfries. Take up a spot in their beer garden and tuck into a steamboat seafood casserole brimming with haddock, mussels, prawns and smoked salmon, or go for a true British pie with proper pastry, mash, vegetables and gravy, all the better when washed down with an ice cold lager or real ale that’s for sure. Our advice? Take yourself off and take in the beautiful Carsethorn Seafront for a pint and a meal – there’s really not much better in our books.

Beautiful day to sit in the garden, watching the waves and enjoying a fabulous combo sharing plate of prawns, scampi, chicken goujons, onion rings, wedges and spring rolls

A great position and good food, interesting menu with lots of seafood. A good place for a birthday lunch and walk along the beach afterwards.
