Burns Night celebrations in London
Just as you thought it wasn’t possible to attend any more parties, Burns Night comes around the corner! On Thursday 25th January 2018, Scots (and all those with a pension for whisky, bagpipes and poetry) will raise a toast to the famous bard, Rabbie Burns.
The Devonshire Club, in the heart of the City, will be hosting a traditional Burns Night supper which draws inspiration from the Scottish larder. The meal will commence with a steaming bowl of Cock-a-leekie soup, followed by the classic show-stopping dish of haggis, neeps & tatties or an indulgent Arbroath smokies fish pie. For dessert, guests will be treated to a rich and fruity Cranachan and whisky-laced coffee, accompanied by a deep-fried Mars Bar. Diners will also enjoy performances from an internationally acclaimed piper Matthew Supranowicz, who won the world championship in 2015 with the pipe band Shotts and Dykehead.
Meanwhile, The Gallery in West Hampstead has become renowned for its dual fascinations – whisky and beer. With over 101 whiskies behind the bar – including many impressive and lesser-known Scotch – and a strong beer list, it is the go to West London bar for a boilermaker. This Burns Night, The Gallery has created a drinks menu for the evening which celebrates a selection of their favourite whiskies and Scottish beers.
