Instead of a Burns supper why not try a Burns afternoon tea?
Looking for something a little different for Burns Night this year? Then head along to Innis & Gunn Beer Kitchen on Ashton Lane, Glasgow or Lothian Road in Edinburgh.
Innis & Gunn are partnering with the makers of Scotland’s national dish, Macsween, for an afternoon tea with a twist.
We were invited along to celebrate the bard with this afternoon tea with a difference – haggis scotch egg, haggis sausage roll, haggis slider, sandwiches, scones and a haggis spiced chocolate truffle.
Rabbie’s Haggis Afternoon Tea, is £15 for 2 people (including two ½ pints of Innis & Gunn Original) and will be available for the full week of Burns including the weekend during the hours of 12noon and 6.30pm.
The haggis scotch egg was my fave. Spicy with a crunchy coating. Special mention for the peppery haggis-influenced chocolate as well. It’s a bit marmite, I loved it, but I maybe wouldn’t eat more than one!
James Macsween, Managing Director at Macsween, said: “There’s no better way to celebrate the renowned Robert Burns than with a delicious haggis. Here at Macsween, we’re excited to be working with Innis & Gunn on a unique Afternoon Tea menu that celebrates the versatility of haggis and offers an alternative format for afternoon tea that will hopefully make haggis even more accessible to everyone.”
“We are constantly looking at ways to share the experience of haggis both here and abroad, and hope this will also show people that haggis isn’t just for Burn’s Night and not just eaten with the traditional neeps & tatties. Haggis can be enjoyed really easily in toasties, with nachos and as a lasagne.”
“Hopefully, our afternoon tea at Innis & Gunn Beer Kitchen will inspire more people to be adventurous and enjoy haggis in alternative ways.”
The Burns afternoon tea is available from Monday 22nd January for seven full days.
