Stuart, Head Chef and owner has been cooking since the age of 14 and successfully ran The Wayfarers restaurant in Croftamie gathering a strong following from locals for his delicious home-made recipes . His partner Jennifer, formerly a primary school teacher, runs the office and day-to-day duties of the hotel and you will often see her buzzing around the restaurant floor. Having only taken over in the summer of 2015, together they have formed the perfect partnership in running the popular Hotel. Assisted by his brother Alistair and cousin Bryan Burch, the family enjoy using their wealth of experience to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

The Drymen Inn also has a great team of hardworking and friendly staff working in the bar and restaurant and it has gradually become an extremely desirable venue and superb addition to The National Park. Through their polite and friendly demeanour many guests return time and time again having warmed to the personal touches that The Drymen Inn provides. The locals have not been shy in openly expressing their gratitude for the new take-over, with many saying it has “brought the heart back into the village”.

Whether it’s home-made food, a weekend stay or just a few drinks, you will find yourself immediately taken by the friendly and cosy atmosphere. Regular live music such as The Jam Night, Folk Night regualr singers/bands and entertainment such as Darts and the regular Wednesday Quiz have proved popular with the locals making this gorgeous little hotel a perfect destination!
