A pub fit for the Bard

Posted on by in

A PUB that’s claimed to be the oldest in Dumfries – and said to have been a popular haunt of Robert Burns – is for sale.


The Globe Inn dates back to 1610 and includes the original Burns bedroom, which is said to have the Bard’s poetry etched on the windows.
Elsewhere, there’s a Burns library and meeting room, which is used by the Burns Howff Club, and a private dining room, which is home to various Burns artefacts and paintings.
There’s also a second dining area, which can seat 12 people as well as the snug public bar and 50-cover restaurant; the property includes a three-bedroom owner’s flat.
Property firm CDLH, which is marketing the Globe Inn at offers over £39,500 for the leasehold, said the current owners have maintained a “first class public house and restaurant offer focused around the great Scottish writer Robert Burns”.
