We only had a beer at the Globe, but the staff was very friendly and showed us the Burns "snug bar."

A very warm and cheery welcome, the ale was most quaffable and the food, we had haggis, neaps and tatties (what else). I have visited a number of times and had other meals which are always quickly delivered, beautifully cooked and delicious to eat

Our first visit to the Globe Inn on new Years Eve and we were made to feel very welcome and Jane even gave us a tour of the various rooms occupied by Robert Burns. The hospitality of the Staff and indeed all the local Scottish people was fantastic.

Went for lunch with friends. Good selection of food and drinks. Was a bit cold, they should put the heating on before they open to warm it up. Was warm when we left. Busy pub, lots of locals and visitors.

This is a revolting poky hole that may not have changed in shape since the 1700s. It always looks full as there are not many seats and if you are a smoker you get to take a seat in the alley way outside for a puff.

My wife and I were staying at a local hotel but visited the Globe Inn on an evening for a few drinks. It is a historic little pub and we enjoyed the company of some very friendly locals including one young man playing his acoustic guitar and others sharing their quiz. The young woman behind the bar was equally friendly... More
