Top 10 Burns Night shindigs in London and Edinburgh

Burns week at Mac & Wild

Hipster Scottish restaurant Mac & Wild has gone hard on the Burns Night theme with a week-long celebration in honour of the bard. Famous for its Veni-Moo burger – a divine marriage of venison and beef oozing with cheese and béarnaise ­– the restaurant’s Devonshire Square site will be hosting a haggis making class on Monday 23 at 6:30 for £40 including cocktails and snacks.

Attendees will have the chance to get down and dirty while whipping up one of Scotland’s most famous dishes. Just don’t ask what’s in it… The following night the Fitzrovia flagship will host a whisky and beer pairing evening (6:30pm, £45), which will include drams from Bruichladdich and suds from the Black Isle Brewery.

On Burns Night itself, guests can sign up for a gargantuan feast for just £35 at both sites, featuring neeps and tatties, venison wellington and millionaire’s shortbread. They’ve even roped in rugby stars Jim Hamilton and Thom Evans to address the haggis. And if that wasn’t enough, the following night the Devonshire Square site will be serving free Monkey Shoulder cocktails from 4-8pm, with live music until the wee hours.
