The Kinmount Bar… our newest idea….

Kinmount Bar – for outside functions.

We promise to keep the drink reasonably priced, have a great range in stock, super staff and top class customer care as well as trying to do a bit for the environment (by using paper straws, biodegradable rubbish sacks, glasses or recycled plastic… we know it’s not much, but we are trying and if anyone has any good green suggestions please let us know) 🙂

A string of fabulous musicians have already played at The Kinmount and we have loved them all, but we are excited at the prospect of introducing our customers to 4 gorgeous girls from Dumfries Community Choir.  The 4 recently formed an a capella  quartet and have quickly become a force to be reckoned with.   Meet L O K A on Friday 8th of September
