Sara, one of our local bloggers, has put together her top picks for celebrating Burns’ Night here in St Andrews.
What could be more cheering than a celebration of the bard, Rabbie Burns, and all things Scottish? And where better to enjoy the fun evening that is Burns’ Night (25 January 2014) than in St Andrews!
You could sample some haggis or other delicious Scottish dishes at The Dolls’ House or The Vine Leaf on South Street. Or for something a bit more spicy the award-winning Nahm-Jim’s on Market Street, which I’ve blogged about before, offers Scottish-Thai fusions extraordinaire such as “Thai Haggis Bombs” (haggis in crunch pastry with a spicy dip) or the “Nahm-Jim Thai Haggis” (haggis combined with chilli, basil and Thai omelette).
An after dinner drink at the new St Andrews Brewing Company pub on South Street would be an obvious next step – sample craft beer and cider (check out the Thistly Cross Ginger Cider) in cosy, chalet-like surrounds. Then burn off some of those calories you just consumed with some lively traditional ceilidh dancing in Forgan’s on Market Street (Forgan’s are also doing a Burn’s Supper event if you wanted to eat there too).
The St Andrews Brewing Co. are also holding a Burns Night Tasting event on the 25th at 7.30, tickets priced at £10 and details of which can be found here.
