    Enjoy haggis if it’s good, and I have several friends who are on the “Burns circuit” locally. Also I have been known to enjoy the odd glass of whisky.

    I'll report later on whether or not the haggis was good, but based on the standard of the food we had before, I'm expecting it to be excellent, and indeed also everything else

    I'll see if I can take some pics...

    Some piccies, as promised (didn't get a chance though to take as many as I wanted).... The venue itself:



    My haggis with whisky sauce, which was lovely:



    Dad enjoying himself:



    It really was exceptional value at 23 a head, because what we didn't realise were included were several whiskies, toasting the haggis and the 'laddies and lassies', with humorous speeches, etc, plus the "small" plate of cheese and oatcakes to finish turned out to be a very BIG one, with numerous different kinds, including a WHOLE baked camembert per table!

    And the oatcakes were made by one of the locals, as was the clootie dumpling, which was fabulous. It seems the pub has a policy of local residents, who are good cooks, supplying certain dishes to the pub, which is a great idea and facilitates a strong community spirit

    All in all, a fab night was had, meeting the locals and having a good chinwag, which shows that proper, family-run village pubs still exist today - and what a welcome change they make in comparison with the soulless chains you get now all over the place!

    Marco.

    Cheers, mate. Quite fresh-faced for (nearly) 87, isn't he?

    Looks like a fabulous Burns Supper. Not a big haggis fan, but would have been happy with the cheeseboard! (And Scotch! ) )

    Did you know that a 2003 survey of American tourists in Scotland revealed that a third of them thought haggis was an actual animal!

    Yes, not far, but more towards the hills (Ceriog Valley), which durning the day is just beautiful - one of our favourite spots
