Burns Night 2018

Archant

January 25 marks Burns Night; an evening celebration of the great late Scottish poet Robert Burns. Many venues in Surrey will be hosting an array of celebrations to mark this cultural tradition, with more than enough haggis to go around. We pick our top events taking place in 2018

1. Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking

On Saturday 27 January, Denbies Estate will be opening its doors for the annual Burns Night celebration. Sparkling wine will be served on arrival, followed by a lavish four-course Burns Night themed meal including haggis and plenty of whisky. Entertainment will be in the form of live music from a traditional Scottish Ceilidh band. The meal is £57 per head or £49.50 with a loyalty card and pre-booking is essential.

2. Reigate Manor, Reigate

The decorated Georgian manor house will be celebrating the life and times of Robert Burns with a dedicated Burns Night celebration on the 27 January. Tickets are available at £30 per person and include a delicious four-course meal, a traditional parade, a late night disco going into the wee hours and an address to the dish itself; the haggis. If you fancy a whiskey or two, an accommodation option is available at just £89 per couple.

3. Burrows Lea Country House, Guildford

Nestled within the beautiful heart of the Surrey Hills, this charming estate house will be hosting a Burns Night celebration on 27 January when guests can expect an evening of authentic Scottish dishes, whimsical highland music and traditional dancing. Tickets cost £25 per head and pre-booking is required.

4. The Crown Inn, Chiddingfold

Burns Night is one of The Crown Inn’s favourite nights of the year and this year’s celebrations are no exception. The Crown Inn will be hosting an evening of haggis, tatties and whisky, whisky, and even more whisky on 27 January. Guests can also look forward to a Scottish piper on the evening. Tickets are £40 per person and must be booked by 19 January.

5. Gomshall Mill, Guildford

Gomshall Mill will be honouring Robert Burns and all things Scottish on 25 January with a traditional set menu designed to compliment the pub’s range of Scottish Malt Whiskies. No tickets are required and Scottish attire is full encouraged. So much so, that any who attends in a kilt will receive a free dram of Scottish whisky. Cheers to that! Tables can be booked on the Gomshill Mill website.

6. The Inn, West End

The Inn will be celebrating the works of Robert Burns in style this Burns Night, 25 January with a four-course supper and a beverage for just £37.50. Expect Scottish traditions such as a ‘Toast to the Haggis’ and ‘Toast to the Lassies’. Just fancy swinging by for a drink and to join in with the festivities? Everyone is welcome.
