Happy New Year from all at L. Mulligan. Grocer. Now that the Christmas tree is down and the fairy lights are packed away for another year, thoughts turn to the celebration of Scotland's national poet Rabbie Burns. Our resident Scot Michael is preparing for his annual haggis hunt in advance of our Burns supper on the 25th January. There will be mismatched tartan a plenty, a be-sporraned piper and lashings of Irn Bru.
The menu will include Cullen Skink, the fore-mentioned haggis (with a vegetarian option available for the squeamish) complete with neeps & tatties finishing off with seasonal cranachan and a parting dram paired with edible peat. The ticket price includes whisky pairings for each course with a Scottish wee heavy beer thrown in for good measure. Traditional dress is optional, though strongly encouraged. Fair fa' ye sonsie faces!
