gRAND DINING ROOM
This long and elegant room, with its authentic wood-panelling, is allegedly where the idea of the Howff Club was first conceived in 1889. Since then it has served many purposes including, most recently, the landlady’s apartment. On stripping out the partition walls, the majesty of this ‘lost’ room finally revealed itself and the idea of a private meeting and dining room was born.
Most of the original features, including the fireplace, wooden panelling and vaulted ceiling, have been retained and restored. Now furnished with locally sourced period antiques and a grand dining table made by local designer and furniture maker, Ian Cameron-Smith, The Globe’s Grand Dining Room is the ideal location for social gatherings and business meetings. You’ll find it perfectly located in the centre of Dumfries with ample parking.
MRS HYSLOP’S KITCHEN
Since 1610, The Globe has entertained travellers, diners and drinkers. Over the years, many a meal would have been prepared in this kitchen by Mrs Hyslop and the cooks that preceded and succeeded her.

DINE IN MRS HYSLOP’S KITCHEN
The reputation of The Globe was known far and wide and undoubtedly hosted many interesting, and also some highly dubious, characters – and now you have the chance to follow in that legacy and dine where Mrs Hyslop once cooked. The very same room where she conjured up countless meals, over many years, for weary travellers, dignitaries, royalty, thespians, politicians and locals, who all clamoured to be spoiled by her culinary prowess.
Around a table for 6 guests, you can choose one of the excellent set menus that Jonathan Brett and his team have created, along with interesting beverage pairings and entertainment options to complete this unique experience.

Rated one of the cosiest Pubs in Scotland
The Globe Inn – first established in 1610 and Robert Burns’ favourite howff – combines rich and passionate history with a stunning and sympathetically refurbished restaurant and bar.
The most prominent of all the pubs associated with Robert Burns
The Globe is a shrine to Burns’ life and times… Ancient timber panellings cover three tiny rooms – all of them museum pieces – with varnish upon varnish upon scuffed, knocked-about, well-worn surfaces.
