HOW TO CELEBRATE BURNS NIGHT 2022

With its haggis-eating and whisky-drinking, Burns Night is one of the biggest dates in the Scottish calendar, as well as being the perfect reason to blow off any booze-less January diets you might still be clinging on to. Whether you’re after a few drams or you’re on the hunt for haggis, we’ve got the best of Burns Night for all you London lads and lassies.

Burns Night Feast at Brigadiers

Brigadiers is putting an Indian spin on the Scottish celebration with a spesh Burns Night feast menu, complete with bagpipes. It kicks off with poppadoms & chutneys, masala chicken skins and haggis nargisi, and then features Brigadiers faves like the BBQ butter chicken wings as well as brand new creations like the Shahi Highlands venison biryani with neeps korma & dal maharani. And you can take it up a notch by adding on a whisky flight including two Scottish and two Indian drams.
