Welcome to The Twa Dugs!
WELCOME to The Twa Dugs - a traditional Scottish pub in the heart of Robert Burns country in Ayr and central for top tourist attractions like golf, Ayr Racecourse and the beach. The pub has strong connections with the famous poet - born just down the road in Alloway - and his monument in Burns Statue Square is a stone's throw away.
The "Twa Dugs" name - meaning "two dogs" - comes from a poem Burns wrote in 1789. It tells the story of a rich man's dog, a Newfoundlander called Ceasar, having a conversation with a poor man's collie dog called Luath.
In honour of the bard and his words - the pub decor includes rare prints of Burns and many other watercolours, etchings and prints with a "Twa Dugs" theme. And as Burns was famously fond of a dram of whisky, we also boast a large collection of water jugs.
Our cheeky motto is "If Burns Were Alive . . . He'd Drink Here" - but we also like to thinks its true. Burns loved honesty, friendship, good company and the best of ales and whiskies. We think you find all these and more at The Twa Dugs!
