Burns Night at top North Somerset hotel

6th January 2016 Print
DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House

A traditional evening of Haggis, whisky and bagpipes in celebration of the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns is taking place at the region’s premier hotel.

The event is taking place on Saturday 23 January at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury where guests will not only be able to tuck into some delicious Haggis, neeps and tatties but enjoy the sounds of a 10-piece pipe band which will give the evening a true Scottish flavour.

A delicious four-course dinner will be served in the venue’s Great Room with a highlight being the cutting of the haggis, which will be accompanied by Burns' famous poem, Address to a Haggis.

The evening will end with dancing until 1am with the Resident DJ.

Colin Badcock, general manager at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House said: “Burns suppers are great occasions. There are lots of traditions and we hope to hold true to many of these during our own Burns night.

“To have a 10-piece piper band on hand will make the evening a spectacular affair and we of course want as many guests as possible to wear kilts! With plenty of wee drams to help the proceedings go smoothly, we’re sure to have a good night!”

The Scottish theme continues in the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill where diners will see the Haggis being piped into the room whilst Address to a Haggis is recited by Restaurant manager Neil McShee.

Diners will have the opportunity to sample the Haggis and a wee dram of Whiskey to celebrate the life of the Scottish poet. The A La carte menu will also have some Scottish additions for those wishing to celebrate the tradition.

Burns is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and his birthday, which is on the 25th, is traditionally celebrated worldwide in late January.

Tickets for the Great Room event cost £35 per person and those who wish to make a weekend of it can book a residential package for £165 for a room for two.
