Joining in with the annual celebration of iconic Scottish poet, Robert Burns, chefs at Stroud Brewery are serving up a 21st century twist on the traditional Burns Night feast — with a special menu that includes a cocktail made from Irn Bru!
This year's event marks the 265th anniversary of his birth, and while the night itself is on Thursday 25 January, Stroud Brewery is offering its Burns Night menu from Wednesday 24 to Sunday 28 January 2024.
The chefs in Stroud Brewery's kitchen have cooked up the special supper menu by imagining what sort of food Rabbie Burns would be eating if he was alive today, concluding that the innovative writer would be into hip, street culture, so they've combined this idea with some Scottish classics.
Diners can expect to tuck into deep fried balls of haggis, neeps and tatties; pickled swede; and whiskey mayonnaise, as well as highlights such as The Big Burns’ Burger, which features a pheasant and haggis patty wrapped in streaky bacon with melted cheddar cheese; and The Vegan Haggis One, including a vegan burger and vegan haggis patty with vegan cheese, whisky mayonnaise, crumbled vegan haggis, wholegrain mustard, onion rings, lettuce and tomato.
But that's not all, to finish the country's iconic soft drink — Irn Bru — gets its own makeover, being served as a cocktail. A Scottish take on the Long Island Tea, the Long Irn Iced Tea is made from vodka, triple sec, tequila, citrus and Irn Bru, creating a sunny lemon and orange hued Burns' Night treat.
