Celebrate Burns Week at Wetherspoon
Wetherspoon’s pubs will be celebrating the life and poetry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns, by hosting the annual week-long Burns event.
Burns’ week 2023 will be during Monday 23–Sunday 29 January (inclusive), with Burns’ Night itself on Wednesday 25 January.
Customers at pubs in England, Wales and, of course, Scotland, will be able to enjoy some traditional Scottish food and drinks.
To mark the occasion, the pubs will be serving two special meals: Scottish haggis, neeps and tatties, as well as Caledonian burger (two 3oz beef patties, with haggis and whisky sauce, served with chips and six beer-battered onion rings).
Among the drinks choices for the Burns event meal deals will be a special Burns ale, Belhaven’s Robert Burns (4.2% ABV), a chestnut-brown ale, as well as a range of guest ales, Scottish gins, whiskies and beer. The range may include Scottish single-malt whiskies, Glenfiddich and Glenmorangie, Scotland’s BrewDog Elvis Juice beer, as well as Scottish gins Hendrick’s Gin and Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb & Ginger gin liqueur.
Customers taking part in Dry January® can also enjoy BrewDog’s Punk AF (0.5% ABV), the low-alcohol beer from the Ellon-based brewery. Wetherspoon’s marketing executive, James Vaughan, said:
“Our Burns’week event is a great opportunity for customers to sample some traditional Scottish food and drinks and to celebrate for longer than just the evening of 25 January itself.
