Hendersons Burns Night
Tuesday 25 January, 5pm onwards
7-13 Barclay Place, EH10 4HW
Hendersons are thrilled to announce that their famous Burns Night is back!
The chefs have created an exciting five course menu that celebrates Scottish cuisine with a Hendersons twist. Tickets are £42 per person and include a glass of prosecco/alcohol free mocktail on arrival.
For social distancing, not everyone will arrive at the same time and therefore there won’t be a shared address to the haggis. Instead, there will be a few Burns’ poems throughout the night, as well as the bagpipes, of course!
Places are bound to go fast, so book on their website now.
