THREE Wigan pubs are set to celebrate the life and poetry of Scotland’s national poet by hosting Burns’ Week.

From today the Wetherspoons houses will be serving Tartan-themed food and drink in honour of Robert Burns until Saturday (January 25) inclusive.

The Brocket Arms in Mesnes Road and The Moon Under Water in Market Place, both in Wigan and The Sir Thomas Gerard in Gerard Street, Ashton in Makerfield, will each be serving three meals to mark the occasion as well as a choice of three whiskies and a Scottish real ale.

The meals on offer are; Macsween award-winning haggis, neeps and tatties; Highland burger (beef burger with Macsween award-winning haggis, whisky sauce, chips and beer battered onion rings) as well as a Scottie Dog (hot dog with Macsween award-winning haggis, whisky sauce, chips and beer battered onion rings).

Customers can also enjoy a Scottish real ale, Caledonian Auld Acquaintance (brewed in Edinburgh), as well as three malt whiskies; Glenfiddich, Isle of Jura and Glenmorangie, at a special price, for a pint of beer or single whisky measure.

The haggis, neeps and tatties, Highland burger and Scottie Dog are all served as a meal deal and include a choice of drink. 

The Brocket Arms manager Julie Curless said: “We are looking forward to celebrating Burns’ Week in style with a great choice of food and drink for our customers to enjoy.”
