Celebrate Burns Night at The Blackbird
CELEBRATE BURNS NIGHT AT THE BLACKBIRD
A LEADING North East pub is getting fired up to mark a 200-year-old Scottish tradition later this month (January).
The Blackbird, at Ponteland, is inviting diners to join them in celebrating Burns Night on 25 January.
The event, which takes place from 7:30pm in the venue’s upper level, includes five courses, whisky tasting and entertainment from a piper.
Diners will enjoy a whole host of dishes throughout the evening, starting with cock-a-leekie soup – a Scottish dish made with leeks and peppered chicken stock – and seared salmon with braised leeks and a whisky butter sauce.
Haggis, neeps and tatties is next on the menu, led by a piper who will then recite the traditional poem ‘To the Haggis’, followed by venison stew, clapshot, buttered vegetables and game jus, with a hot toddy dessert.
A vegetarian option is also available if booked in advance.
Stuart Young, of Northumberland Pub Co, which owns The Blackbird, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting a special event to mark the occasion this year.
“Burns Night is fantastic fun and our chefs have pulled together a delicious five course menu with a variety of Scottish delicacies.
“It’s shaping up to be a really brilliant night with a great atmosphere and excellent company and we’re looking forward to welcoming diners later this month.”
Burns Night at The Blackbird costs £39.95 per person.
