Burns Night 2018 - THOMPSON St Albans

Burns Night with THOMPSON St Albans

Join us for our first ever Burns Night, Thursday 25th January 2018, for which Phil Thompson has created a traditional Scottish menu with a few of his own modern twists. We will immerse you in yet more traditions of Burns Night festivities… Our very own Stephen Mcilvenny, Commis Chef from Aberfoyle, will be playing the pipes (he competed at national level) and James Renfrew, our Assistant Restaurant Manager, from Linlithgow, not far from Edinburgh, will be  ‘Addressing the Haggis’, in typical Burns Night fashion.

Our classic and traditional 4 course Tasting Menu at £49.50 per person, is accompanied by carefully selected matching beverages, including a complimentary cocktail to enjoy with your canapés on arrival, followed by wine and whisky pairings, matching the flavour combination of each dish. The wine flight is optional at £28.50 per person or can be chosen as individual options according to your preference, and whiskies will be priced by the glass on the evening.
