To celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s most famous poet, we are delighted to invite you to attend our ‘Old School Wines’ Burn’s Night supper.

A contemporary take on the traditional Burns Night supper will be prepared by Wedgwood resident Chef Dave Rose to which Andrew & Whisky ‘expert’ Dave ‘Mc’Pickard have selected wines or whiskies to accompany each course.

You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy both great wines or Malt Whiskies to accompany each of the five courses.

A fastinating fun evening, ‘laced’ with Scottish Tradition, delicious Scottish produce and good company.
