Burns Night Nicholson’s Pubs

My evening at Nicholson’s Burns Night event at the Henry Addington, in Canary Wharf London. With Scottish music, a traditional burns night supper and whisky pairings with each course.

I was invited to the Nicholson’s Pubs Burns Night at the Henry Addington in Canary Wharf London. Having never celebrated Burns Night before, I was super excited to experience a fun night full of Scottish traditions. The Henry Addington created a cosy corner of the pub for the evening decorated with tartan and also with a live band playing Scottish music. We had, therefore, a traditional burns night supper with whisky pairings for each course. Hosted by Highland Park, renowned experts in Whisky, we were consequently provided with great insight into the different whisky throughout the night. So as part of the Burns Night traditions, we had the address to the haggis and we sang Auld Lang Syne at the end of the evening.  

The Food

The standard of the food was very impressive given that it was pub food. I had the smoked Scottish salmon to start which was really tasty. I also had the Balmoral chicken for main and I got a very generous portion. Moreover, the chicken was perfectly moist and delicious with the whisky sauce. They also had on the menu the traditional haggis, neeps & tatties, the crofters pie and a root vegetable hot pot, all sounded fantastic. There was Cranachan for pudding; a traditional Scottish dessert of smooth whipped cream, sweet honey, a dash of whisky, raspberries and golden toasted oats. Unfortunately, I can’t have cream but I really enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding.

Firstly, the whisky pairings started with a really smokey whisky from Laphroaig, then a milder and aged whisky from Highland Park and Lastly with a sweeter Auchentoshan Whisky with notes of vanilla which was my favourite one of the night.

Overall I really enjoyed my first ever Burns Night, it was a really fun night put together by Nicholson’s pubs at the Henry Addington in Canary Wharf London. I couldn’t believe it was under £20 for the whole night! Definitely highly recommend!
