Let me tell you of my visit to this so called "best pub in town". First of all, when I entered the pub I did think it was quite a historic place, by the way it was built.

Tucked away from the Main Street. A small but wonderful pub. We had a great lunch & will definitely be back one day. Even had live music as we ate.

The chips were good though. The place itself was quite welcoming and cosy, service was slow though, we had to ask twice... More

You can't beat a visit to the Globe in Dumfries. Lovely atmosphere lovely staff and good food. Be it a bowl of soup or tatties neeps and haggis you can't go wrong. Very generous portions and always very hot. Very child friendly during the day as well. Well worth the visit.

Good Ale, Good time, great staff and locals galore. THE place to go if you are exporing Robert Burns country. Music on evenings and lots of real men in real kilts.
