Our Story

Family run Italian restaurant in Stranraer

Rab worked and lived in Dumfries for many years in project management/the housing sector. When building his own house over 25 years ago, his son asked if he would build a pizza oven in the garden, to which he obliged. Years passed and many garden pizzas later Rab became a Papa to Naeva and when she was old enough always asked for ‘Papa Rab’s pizzas’ whenever they came to visit.

6 years ago, Rab embraced a move to Stranraer which meant a career change – he made the decision to purchase a catering trailer and built a pizza oven inside and started selling his own pizzas at various locations and events in Dumfries & Galloway, to great response. This catering trailer was called Papa Rab’s Pizzas.

Kayleigh is from a local farm in Stranraer, who has over 20 years of hospitality experience supervising and managing restaurants in the area. Together they have a 3-year-old daughter, Olivia. 5 weeks after the birth of Olivia they got the keys to what is now Papa Rab’s Restaurant, Takeaway & Bar and they have been enjoying the journey ever since.
