Burns Night is set to be celebrated in style in the heart of Northumberland, with sister venues The Blackbird at Ponteland and The Northumberland Arms in Felton hosting special events on January 25.

The Blackbird’s menu will include Cock-a-Leekie Soup – a mix of leeks, chicken stock and barley – followed by slow cooked confit brisket, roast carrot with bacon crumb, clapshot – turnip and potatoes – skirlie, a traditional stuffing – and crispy shallots. Haggis, neeps and tatties will also be served, followed by a new take on Cranachan featuring iced honey parfait, white chocolate, toasted oat tuille, raspberries and whisky gel. The dinner costs £40 per person and vegetarian options are also available.

Meanwhile, The Northumberland Arms’ three-course menu will feature Cock-a-Leekie Soup; Haggis Wellington served with neeps and tatties and whisky and peppercorn sauce; and traditional Cranachan – a mix of raspberries, whiskey cream and toasted oats for dessert. The event costs £35 per person and vegetarian options can be ordered in advance.
