Burns Night Shropshire 2024

I’ll be honest, you all seem to love my little directories, so here’s the round up with the Burns Night Shropshire Edition. January just isn’t January without haggis, neeps, tatties and a little nip of something warming. It doesn’t matter where you come from, Burns Night is a fantastic excuse for a tasty meal out and a spot of poetry in the bleak midwinter.

Beware of imitations – whisky is Scottish (or Japanese tbf), whiskey is Irish (or American). So if that menu spells it with an “e,” then I would be rightfully indignant and wary of the amount of research they have done in making their menu authentic. Just kidding, they probably just don’t know.
