Our ever-popular Burns’ week event is set to be celebrated again at Wetherspoon, in style, with traditional Scottish food and drinks.
The annual week-long festival, which will run from Wednesday 20 to Tuesday 26 January (inclusive), covers Burns’ Night itself (25 January).
A celebration for the birth of Scottish poet Robert Burns (25 January 1759–21 July 1796), it is customary to eat haggis, neeps and tatties – and your local Wetherspoon pub will not disappoint.
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. The price of both meals includes a drink from the Wetherspoon meal-deal range. Also available will be our small haggis, neeps and tatties meal (without a drink included in the price).
Our pubs across England, Wales and, of course, Scotland will also be marking the occasion with a range of guest ales.
Other Scottish drinks being showcased for the celebrations – all included in our Burns’ week meal-deal offers – include Scottish gins, whiskies, rum and beer.
Among the choices are Scottish gins Tanqueray No. Ten, Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla, Hendrick’s and Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb & Ginger, as well as Scotland’s BrewDog Elvis Juice beer and BrewDog’s Five Hundred Cuts Botanical Rum.
Customers taking part in Dry January® can also enjoy BrewDog’s Punk AF (0.5% ABV), our low-alcohol beer from the Ellon-based brewery.
Two Scottish single-malt whiskies will also be available – Glenfiddich and Glenmorangie. Burns’ week organiser, Jen Swindells, said: “Our celebration is always enjoyed by customers at our pubs north and south of the border.
“It is a great opportunity for everyone to sample some traditional Scottish food and drinks and to mark the occasion for longer than just 25 January itself.”
