  • The Globe Inn

    The Globe Inn, tucked away in a narrow close off the High Street of Dumfries, will always be associated with Robert Burns, Scotland’s National Bard. It is one of the country’s oldest hostelries, established in 1610. Robert Burns frequented the Globe firstly from Ellisland Farm, whilst he was building the farmhouse, and subsequently when he moved into the town of Dumfries. The Globe at that time was a town center Inn of some stature and it is no wonder that the bard was drawn to it. Physically the Globe has changed little, although in 1829 it was described as a ‘commodious dwelling house and garden with extensive stabling’. This would hardly be recognized today, the building now surrounded on all sides by shops and the stables now formed into a lounge bar. However, the old rooms are still there, his chair is still intact, the fireplace thereby but above all, the Globe is still alive and far removed from some inert museum; people still congregate to chat and laugh as before. He first wrote from the Globe in October 1791, but had visited earlier, and in August 1795, in a letter to James Johnson, requested the printer and publisher to produce “a job which I beg will finish pretty soon. It is a bill, as you will see, for a tavern. The tavern keeper Hyslop is a good honest fellow and as I lie under particular obligations to him I request that you may do it for him on the most reasonable terms. The tavern is at the sign of the Globe”.
    The Globe Inn today retains many original features of Burns time, the bedroom where he slept and the verses on the window panes, the chair on which he sat in the room where he dined, but good home cooked food and a variety of modern drink is now available in this cosy little pub.
