Burns Night 2020 at The Observatory

Celebrate the life and work of the great Scottish poet Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns and visit The Observatory between 20 – 25 January to celebrate Burns Night.

Get your friends together and enjoy a traditionally Scottish 2 or 3-course set menu that our team of chefs have lovingly curated.

For starters enjoy smoked Scottish salmon served with oatcakes and chive sour cream. Then for the main event, what else but haggis, neeps & tatties served with mashed swede, potatoes and gravy. Or, try our root vegetable hot pot, a perfect vegan alternative. End Burns Night supper with a bowl of Cranachan made with whipped cream, honey, a dash of whisky, raspberries and toasted oats (v).

As well as dishes that are packed with flavour, we’re also offering a whisky flight that will perfectly complement your evening. For just £sport, enjoy 25ml of Laphroaig 10 Year Old, Highland Park 12 Year Old and Auchentoshan American Oak when you order 2 or 3-courses from our set menu. If you fancy a long serve why don’t you try an Orcadian Cooler whisky highball? This is Highland Park 12 Year Old, elderflower presse and a squeeze of lemon served over ice.

Experience a lively evening filled with Scottish tradition in our historic pub — bookings are now being taken, so get in touch with us at The Observatory to secure your table.
