Scottish poet Robert Burns is set to be celebrated, once again, during our ever-popular annual Burns event.
Our pubs across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and, of course, Scotland will be marking the occasion with Scottish food and drinks in a full 10-day event, from Friday 17 January to Sunday 26 January, including Burns’ Night itself (25 January).
Customers will be able to enjoy traditional Scottish haggis, neeps and tatties, as well as our Caledonian burger – a 6oz beef patty burger, with haggis and whisky sauce, served with chips and six beer-battered onion rings.
Pubs will also be serving a special guest ale for the occasion, Harviestoun Haggis Hunter (4.3% ABV), brewed at Harviestoun Brewery, in Clackmannanshire, using Bobek, Cascade, Celeia, East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops.
The beer is described as a tawny-coloured ale, with a spicy, floral hop aroma and a fruity, hoppy flavour, complemented by a blend of pale and crystal malts – the ideal accompaniment to your haggis meal.
Other Scottish drinks will be available for the celebrations, either on their own or as part of our Burns event meal-deal offers, including Scottish gins, whiskies and beer.
Among the choices, are Scottish gins Tanqueray No. Ten, Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla, Hendrick’s and Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb & Ginger and Scotland’s BrewDog Elvis Juice beer, as well as two Scottish single-malt whiskies – Glenmorangie and Glenfiddich.
Wetherspoon’s marketing assistant, Jen Swindells, said: “Our Burns event is a great opportunity for customers to sample some traditional Scottish food and drinks and to celebrate for longer than just 25 January.”
