Coronavirus Emergency

During this Coronavirus Emergency, I’m intending to use this carlops.net home page as a kind of public noticeboard. Let me know by email at lesmorss@carlops.net of any content or link that should be added. Here’s the first:

Allan Ramsay Hotel Takeaway Meals

Following government advice today The Allan Ramsay’s pub and restaurant will CLOSE tonight (Friday 20th March) at 9pm. We have been working on a new TAKEAWAY and HOME DELIVERY menu which is for now available on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; starting tomorrow Saturday 21st March from 12 noon with Home delivery from 5pm. The menu can be found on the website (www.allanramsayhotel.com) so orders can be placed online and also by phone on 01968 660258. All payments must be made by credit or debit card when placing your order. No cash please. (Please note that all menu choices will be subject to availability and all food preparation will be conducted in line with government guidelines on coronavirus). We hope that everyone in the area gets through this unscathed and you will continue to support the pub through this very difficult time.

Our best wishes to everyone

Kenny and Rosie

The online menu can be found at


The service is going to be offered from Thursday to Sunday – takeaway 12-8pm and home delivery 5-8pm. I understand there is a small charge for home delivery by the Hotel, and alternatively you can ask one of the team of volunteers to deliver your meals to the door. Probably the best way to do this is to stick a message on  https://nextdoor.co.uk

 If you’re not on Nextdoor and you live in Carlops or West Linton, email me lesmorss@carlops.net and I’ll invite you on.

It’s very kind of Rosie and Kenny to make this service available, and I hope many of us will be supporting our much valued pub through this very difficult time.


I understand Stagecoach is running a Sunday service from March 23rd. The following is extracted from the Stagecoach webpage



The following services will operate as a Sunday service Mon-Sun 
Dumfries Service 101 102
Dumfries Service 101A
