About Burns Night
Burns Night is a great occasion when many dinners dedicated to his memory are held all over the world. The ritual of the Burns Supper was started by close friends of Robert Burns a few years after his death and the format remains largely unchanged today, beginning with the chairman of the supper inviting the assembled company to welcome the haggis. The poem ‘Ode to a Haggis’ is recited and the haggis is then toasted with a glass of whisky.

Who Was Robert Burns?
Born on 25 January 1759, Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns is the best loved Scottish poet, admired not only for his verse and great love-songs, but also for his character, high spirits, ‘kirk-defying’, hard drinking and womanising!
Burns contributed over 300 songs, many of his own composition, and others based on older verses for the Scots Musical Museum. Burns died aged 37 of rheumatic fever which he contracted after falling asleep at the roadside (after a particularly vigorous dinking session) in pouring rain. The last of Burns’ children was actually born during his funeral service.
Burns will never be forgotten as his poems and songs are still as popular in Scotland as they were when first written.
Feedback from our previous takeaway specials:
“The New Year’s Eve menu was wonderful. We really enjoyed the food and felt it was easy to follow the instructions and we were well stuffed! If felt very special (we even changed into ‘going out’ clothes!) My husband did however miss having someone to take our empty plates into the kitchen!”
“Just wanted to say thank you for our beautiful meal last night. We thoroughly enjoyed it! We look forward to visiting once ‘normal’ life resumes”.
“Had the New Year’s Eve takeaway last night and it was brilliant. Thanks to all involved. Lovely idea for a special occasion and hope you will do more.”
