The Twa Dugs

The Twa Dugs is a traditional Scottish pub, one that epitomises the best elements of Ayrshire; good hospitality and rich heritage – heritage that includes the life and works of the nation’s favourite bard, Robert Burns. In fact, the pub takes its name from a Burns poem that was composed in 1789, in which a rich man’s dog converses with a poor man’s collie. Today, rich, poor and pooch alike are extended a warm welcome in The Twa Dugs, whose bold motto is “If Burns were alive, he’d drink here.” If Burns were alive, he’d drink at any pub that would have him – and The Twa Dugs would certainly be one of them. Historical legends aside, the pub is best known for its selection of rare whiskies and cask ales. Football is shown in the bar and live entertainment is a regular staple. This quirky wee pub is proud of its idiosyncrasies, which include a penchant for collecting water jugs. Bring one to add to the bar’s collection and they’ll reward you in the form of a £5 bar voucher. The Twa Dugs is as popular with tourists seeking the ‘authentic’ Scottish experience as it is with locals in need of a dram after a long day, be it in the office or at the bookie. The whisky board, engraved with the names of more than 60 fine malts and blends, promises to ease the pain and soothe the soul.

Went to the twa dugs with my daughter in the passing just for a quick drink. Came out 3 hours later. Great wee pub and brilliant entertainment. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and prices were reasonable. Although I’m not a whisky drinker, the selection was phenomenal and a board on the wall lists them all with the regions they come from. I know we’ll be back next time we’re on holiday. Thanks folks.
