Over our years at Craigwell Cottage, we’ve welcomed visitors to Edinburgh in January who are attending a burns supper or just for a seasonal break. We really enjoy meeting visitors who are spending their summer holidays here in January– travelling from Australia or New Zealand to escape the summer heat and visit the land of their ancestors in an extended stay to explore Scotland.
As it’s the birthday of Robert Burns in January, we do have to answer the question about where our visitors can find a Burns Supper in Edinburgh, as they’ve often drunk a toast to our national bard in far-flung lands but want to find the ‘real thing’ in Scotland. This usually necessitates a hurried search by me through the local web pages, to see which local restaurants and pubs are putting on a special menu or event.
If I’ve tempted you to try a Burns Supper in Edinburgh, you can try these suggestions for 2019
- Whiski Rooms – an easy walk from Craigwell Cottage
- Wedgwood the Restaurant – only a short walk from Craigwell Cottage in the Canongate offering Burns Night dinner by Chef Paul Wedgwood
- Scottish Experience – a whole week of Burns Suppers at the Ghillie Dhu
- The Scottish Storytelling Centre in the Royal Mile, Edinburgh has a “Supper with Burns” on 24th 25th January and a Cafe Ceilidh on 22nd January 2019. (booking for these events is essential)
