Places to eat & drink in Moffat.

Of great strategic importance, Moffat lies at the crossroads of key routes to the awesome Devil's Beeftub and on to Edinburgh, or through the steep-sided Moffat Water towards the Yarrow Valley. In the 19th century it became a famous spa town, attracting aristocrats such as the Empress Eugenie of France. It was also an important wool centre, which is why the life-like statue of ram stands in its main street. This pretty town also boasts the shortest street in Scotland (Chapel Street) and the narrowest (Syme Street), not forgetting the narrowest hotel!

The man who invented tarmac, John McAdam, is buried here while Lord Dowding, head of Fighter Command in World War II, was born here.

A short drive from Moffat is the magnificent Grey Mare's Tail Nature Reserve, full of slopes and corries, which has an awe-inspiring waterfall at its centre and the White Coombe mountain as its highest point (821m).

A warm welcome awaits you at the Black Bull Hotel, which is a three star graded Hotel. We are located one and a half miles from the M74. The Black Bull's main building dates back to the 16th century. Much has happened here, in the three years 1683 - 1685, it was used as the headquarters for Graham of Claverhouse and his Dragoons. The hotel was also frequented by the Scottish Bard, Robert Burns, circa 1790. We serve Bar Lunches and Evening Meals daily and we have a great range of cask ales in both our Lounge Bar and Railway Bar. We also have 12 fully furnished en-suite bedrooms and a family suite.
