Meet Murray our Head Chef at Gather

Born and bred in Dumfries and Galloway, our Gather Head Chef Murray McDavid will be treating guests to a brand new dining experience in the region.

With a passion for travelling (or should we say more of a life goal of visiting every country in the world – 73/197 so far!) Murray has over 10 years of kitchen experience with global experience and skills. A travelling stint across the world ended up with him working and living in Australia and New Zealand for four years, allowing him to learn and adopt a modern cafe dining culture. Murray’s personal favourite comes from exploring the spice pallets and flavour combinations in Asian dishes which is reflected in some of the dishes on Gather’s menu.

So what can you expect to find on the Gather menu? If you fancy a lie in but still want some brekky, our breakfast menu is open from 9am – midday. From Gather’s Big Breakfast to pancakes or good old brecky roles, our breakfast and brunch menu will tick the box.

If you’ve got weekend plans but still want to pop in on your way past, from midday – 4pm we’ll be serving lunch including burgers, flatbread, proper BLTS, soup…to name a few. Oh and a selection of irresistible desserts.

We’re also going to be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 5pm-9pm for visitors who want to have a night off cooking at the weekend.

Our cooking and menu design is based upon simple food, executed perfectly. Using local ingredients, the menu will see a touch of international influences and flavours bringing visitors a range of dishes that will suit all preferences.

If you’re looking for a restaurant or cafe in Dumfries and Galloway, come and visit us! The food and the views will not disappoint.
