Celebrate a centuries’-old Scottish tradition at a centuries’-old venue on January 25 with The Northumberland Arms’ Burns’ Night event.
A piper will play throughout the evening and Robert Burns’ Address to the Haggis will be read as diners enjoy a traditional menu which begins with a choice of vegetarian Scotch broth made of barley and winter vegetables; a haggis Scotch egg with tikka mayo and pickled swede; or potted Scottish smoked salmon served with house preserves and sourdough.
Main courses include the chef’s take on haggis, neeps and tatties – deep fried haggis, textures of swede and creamed potatoes, a quail’s egg and whisky-infused sauce – or cullen skink. Vegetarian diners can opt for a meat-free haggis and swede wellington, served with roast beets, buttered kale and chocolate oil.
Diners can then choose from cranachan, deep fried Mars Bar or Scottish macaroons for dessert.
Spaces for the evening are limited and must be booked in advance by calling 01670 787 370, with a £10 per head deposit.
