A CELEBRATION of Burns Night saw a full-house at Galloways of Woburn last week, as diners gathered to toast to Scottish poet Robert Burns.
The annual event, held on January 25th, was warmly welcomed to return by customers following a successful launch last year.
Born and bred in Scotland, owners Pam and Ash wanted to bring their culture and tradition to the village of Woburn.
Keen to follow in tradition, guests were welcomed with a piper piping in the haggis to kick-start the evening’s proceedings.
Pam carried the haggis around the restaurant before laying it on the high table where an Address to a Haggis was performed.
On cue, the haggis was cut – followed by guests enjoying a shot of whisky to toast.
This year, the head chef created a main called Haggis and Black Pudding Stack for the event after diners couldn’t get enough of the delicious and unique Haggis Hash recipe in 2018.
It went down a treat with customers who cleared their plates during the three-course dinner.
Plans are already in place for next year after fantastic feedback once again.
If you have never celebrated Burns Night, make 2020 the year you do.
It all started in 1801 when friends and family of famous Scottish poet Robert Burns commemorated the fifth anniversary of his death.
The memorial has morphed into a country-wide event with people celebrating in their homes or in restaurants with traditional music, and renditions of Burns’ most treasured poetry to celebrate his life and literary legacy.
