Dumfries Nightlife Tips by CliffClaven
Dumfries Nightlife: 10 reviews and 2 photos
For a nation so devoted to drinking, it's always a wonder why the Scots choose to drink in such awful surroundings - although the Hole in the Wa', pictured here, is a reasonable town-centre pub that makes a commendable effort. As a rule, there is none of the cheerful liveliness that you can find in a pub in Germany, Japan or the States. Perhaps it has something to do with the puritan in every Scot, equating pleasure with sin. In most Scottish pubs, if you want to drink in more congenial surroundings you move to the gents. Poor old Cliffie has supped many a pint in his vain search for a decent bar north of the border. And another odd trait of the Scotsman on the bevvy is that you can stand beside him all evening and he will never utter a word. But walk into the toilet, and he will immediately strike up a conversation: Och aye, is this where a' the big knobs hing oot - ye ken, ye dinnae buy beer, ye just rent it - jings, couldnae be a pishheid.
