Go all out with a four course feast at Fortnum & Mason

If you're looking to really spoil yourself, book onto this Burns Night dinner at Fortnum and Mason – complete with wine and whisky from Lindores Abbey. You'll leave with a belly full of classic Scottish food including cullen skink, haggis, neeps and tatties, raspberry trifle, blue cheese, oatcakes and chutney. Sure, it might be a little on the spenny side, but it is for a very special someone's birthday. Seating is communal and pre-allocated. 

From 7pm. £90 per person.


There's been a lot of haggis, neeps, and tatties on this list. But if you're looking for something to tickle your taste buds a little more this year, check out this Caribbean twist on the classic Burns supper. In a meal kit that you can easily whip up at home, you'll get haggis scotch eggs with a sweet chili dip, jerk chicken with neeps, tatties and plantain mash, as well as paired cocktails made with Dewar's Caribbean Smooth. There's enough for two people, and you'll also recieve a curated playlist to help you 'cook to the beat' – delish.
£70 for two people. Available for delivery on 25th January only.

With streets like ‘Caledonian Road’ and buildings like ‘Great Scotland Yard’, it shouldn't be too surprising that London has its fair share of Scottish secrets. To celebrate Burns out in the fresh air, why not tour the city while learning about the capital’s most Scottish spots?
