We came to Lockerbie for Burns night, and I had booked beforehand a Burns super meal event at Just Be, that was advertised on their Facebook page. We were blown away by the whole experience. It was a perfect evening. We were greeted by Jim...and his lovely team who were all friendly and welcoming. The tables were beautifully dressed for the occasion with custom Robert Burns napkins. The dressing of the Haggis with bagpipes was a definitely unique experience, and one that I certainly will remember. The included choice of cocktail was well meassured and well suited to the Burns theme. The 8 course meal was incredible and really reflected just how good Scottish cuisine can be! Every single course was packed with flavour whilst still staying true to the heartiness of Scottish food. The Haggis was the best I've ever had and our tentative host Jim, informed us that it was locally sourced from the best Haggis supplier in town. I think my favourite course was definitely the deep fried Mars Bar, totally indulgent but worth every bite! I really couldn't fault anything about the experience. It was amazing value for money too. I certainly felt privileged to have had local people, welcome us to celebrate their national festivity with them. The host Jim really couldn't do enough for us, we were certainly charmed by his Scottish character. We would definitely recommend anyone to go to this place, especially to their event evenings they host! Thank you Jim for sharing your Burns Super with us!More

My sister and I called in Just Be for lunch, it is a small restaurant, It was lovely and warm which was nice as it was very cold outside. We both had jacket potato's with different toppings, they were both delicious, the potato was cooked...to perfection and the topping was very generous, The coffee was excellent. The waitress was pleasant and helpful with the menu as my sister needed gluten free food. A very pleasant lunch.More

You certainly felt the welcome on entering this coffeee shop The staff were friendly and the service was good It was a very cold day but it was lovely and warm inside. I had my Tea Cake and drink However. Sad to say and very...embarrassing I walked out without paying. I only realised this as I was about to get on the bus and at 80 years old was not able to run back and settle my bill So having found their address on the web. Money note will be posted to them tomorrow when I get to EdinburghMore
