The Globe Inn
56 High Street



The Globe Inn

Nestling along a cobbled flagstone close, just off Dumfries’ High Street, The Globe Inn, first established in 1610 and Robert Burns’ favourite Howff, combines rich and passionate history with a stunning and sympathetically refurbished restaurant, bar, private dining room and museum.


The Globe offers a fusion of modern culinary techniques and traditional Scottish ingredients that delivers high quality lunch and dinner menus at fantastic value for money.


Reserve a table in the atmospheric ‘1610 Restaurant’ our main dining room (once the old stables), or choose our stunning Private Dining Room set within the panelled eves of the original hay loft. Whether you want to enjoy a intimate table for two or need a venue for your next business or family function, you can enjoy food of impeccable quality prepared by our Michelin-experienced chefs and enjoyable hospitable service from the front of house team.


The Globe still retains its roots as an inn and you are welcome to simply enjoy a drink at the bar or in the Snug, where you can select a dram from amongst the largest selection of whisky in the region and even try a snifter of Annandale Distillery’s rare, award winning Man O’Sword peaty Single Malt. We also have an interesting selection of unusual cocktails and an extensive list of sensibly-priced quality wines, or be taken on a journey through the history of Gin and Rum.


You can discover the history of Burns and his relationship with The Globe by booking on to one of the tours hosted by Burns’ Howff Club or Burns aficionado Jane Brown who tell passionate tales that will make you laugh and ponder on the stories the walls could tell. You can sit in the famous Poets Chair, if you can recite a verse of the Bard’s poetry, visit his bed chamber, kitchen and dining room, read the diamond etched verses scribed on the windowpane by his very own hand, and marvel at the various rare artefacts proudly displayed.
