Exclusive Use at Dumfries Arms Hotel

About this space

Plan your wedding day exactly the way you want inside the hotel’s flexible event space. The function suite welcomes up to 250 guests for the duration of your celebrations and it is also ideal for smaller, more intimate gatherings. Every part of your wedding will be conducted comfortably in one place, transforming seamlessly from a romantic ceremony to a dining area. Decorated like a stylish ballroom for the evening reception, the venue will be perfect for late-night dancing. Feel free to bring your own DJ or a band of your choice — there’s plenty of space to invite them in.

One of the highlights of your wedding will be the three or four-course meal served with refreshing drinks and fine wines. Each menu choice includes the best recipes of traditional Scottish cuisine.
