The Black Bull Hotel, January 2000

Only a mile or so from the M74/M6 about halfway between Glasgow and Carlisle. Easy to find, it's just to the right of the main road near the Tourist Information Centre in the centre of Moffat. It's a 16th Century hotel with strong connections with Robbie Burns that are clearly seen in the lounge bar. There are examples of his work on the wall and indeed a replica of a piece of glass upon which he signed his name.

The food portions are generous, the service quick and friendly and the price very reasonable. We had the 'haggis, neeps and tatties', our last chance before heading south to Birmingham. Beerwise, they've always a good selection of guest beers on offer.

The comfortable lounge was filled with a mix of locals and visitors seemingly all with Norfolk accents talking about Yorkshire.

Next door is the other bar, a public bar that is full of railway memorabilia.
