Ultimate Burns Night Celebrations in London 2019

By Alex Martin

Burns Night, celebrated on January 25 to commemorate Scottish poet Robert Burns, is the perfect excuse to sample Scotland’s finest produce such as Scotch whisky and haggis. Here, Elite Traveler presents a guide to the ultimate Burns Night celebrations in London.

Holborn Dining Room

To celebrate Burns Night, Holborn Dining Room will be hosting an exclusive supper created especially by their executive chef Calum Franklin. The dinner will be hosted on their iconic Terrace, which has been transformed into magical woodland glade for winter.

In collaboration with Speyside Scotch whisky The Glenlivet, the menu includes Highland venison & haggis wellington, and a custard tart made with a dash of the distillery’s 18-year-old single malt.

The Burns Night Supper will be hosted on January 25 and is priced at £145 ($187). For more information, visit the Holborn Dining Rooms website.

Roux at Parliament Square

Renowned French chef Michel Roux Jr. is bringing Burns Night to his Westminster restaurant with a Scottish-inspired five-course supper on January 25. Each course comes with a thoughtfully paired single malt whisky from The Balvenie, a traditional Speyside distillery.

The Burns Night supper includes haggis with neeps and tatties, which is a combination of mashed swede, yellow turnip and potatoes. The main course is venison with red cabbage and parsnip.

Tickets are priced at £130 ($168) per person. Contact to reserve.

Straying slightly to the left of convention, Temper City, based in the heart of London’s Square Mile business district, is offering a more hedonistic version of events. Their five sharing dishes, including haggis tacos and beef shin stovies, comes with five drams of whisky to match.
