The Tam O’Shanter Inn was established in 1630 as a coaching inn and because of this it has plenty of character as well as characters within. There are 6 hand-pulls with 3 regular Broughton ales and three rotating guest taps which feature all sorts of award-winning Scottish ales. There is also a large selection of whisky to try or rums if you prefer.
It is a traditional pub welcoming to locals and visitors alike. It has no TV or jukebox, just folk putting the world to rights at the bar. There is a snug room and backroom as well as a sheltered smoking area outside. There is also a function room upstairs with live folk-music sessions fortnightly with the T.M.S.A. It is a popular pub for dogs with many regulars being towed in the door but please warn us if your dog is on a diet… as the biscuits flow as freely as the beer sometimes.
The pub is managed by Suzy Elder who took over the premises in 2010 and have reintroduced folk-music to the pub as well as a passion for good ales and whiskies: 3 Broughton Cask Ales, 3 Guest Ale Taps, 1 Broughton Craft Keg.
Range of whiskies and rum.

Located in town centre of Dumfries, the Douglas Arms or better know as the “The Dougie” has been serving beer for quite some time. Recently in 2012, the Dougie has started serving cask ale again. With a nice mix of local and passing clientele, the pub has a real “home” feel to it.
Open daily from 11am to 11pm. Come in for a wee pint and enjoy the brilliant atmosphere.
