BURNS’ DINING ROOM
See the very spot where Burns ate, drank and entertained his companions with verse and song. In Burns’ time this was known as his Snug. Sit in his chair if you dare, but if you do you are obliged to recite his poetry or buy the entire inn a drink.
It is in this room that Burns often slept and shared intimate exchanges with Anna Park, a serving maid at The Globe Inn. Perhaps he composed his favourite song ‘The Gowden Locks of Anna’ whilst lying with her in this room.
