Robert Burns, also known as Rabbie, was a Scottish poet and songwriter born 25th January 1759, died 21st July 1796. His poems were often to the point and controversial but also very entertaining and funny. He is regarded as the founder of the romantic movement and inspired those who developed socialism and liberalism. He is celebrated around the world and his famous tune, ‘Auld Lang Syne’ is sung by many at Hogmanay, New Years Eve, when the clocks strike 12midnight.

Many celebrate this larger than life cheeky chappy by eating traditional Scottish dishes, drinking whiskey and citing his poems. We are crazy bean are going to be doing just that on Friday the 27th and Saturday 28th January and we will be looking for diners to join in and read a few pre-prepared pieces, so we need all the performers to come along and join in.

Our set menu for the event is:

Wee dram of Scotch Whiskey, bubbly or non-alcoholic aperitif

Broc-a-leekie soup (see what we did there…)

Haggis, neeps and tatties with whiskey sauce

Cranachan sundae with lavender shortbread

Join us for this winter warming and celebratory evening of delicious vegan versions of these classic dishes.

Love the bean team 🙂
