The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Food and Drink -

A host of pubs and restau­rants across Peterborough cel­e­brated Burns Night last night, but the life and po­etry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns is be­ing marked all week in Wether­spoons pubs. Un­til to­mor­row cus­tomers at The Col­lege Arms in Broad­way and The Draper’s Arms in Cowgate, both in Peterborough, as well as the Ivy Wall in New Road, Spald­ing and The Ge­orge Ho­tel in Mar­ket Place, Whit­tle­sey will be able to en­joy two spe­cial meals; Scottish hag­gis, neeps and tat­ties, as well as High­land Burger (6oz burger, hag­gis, whisky sauce, chips and six beer­bat­tered onion rings). There is also a guest ale, Edin- burgh Cas­tle, from Cale­do­nian Brew­ery in Ed­in­burgh. The beer is a Scottish 80/- Shilling Ale, ruby in colour, with malty and fruity aro­mas, a creamy bit­ter­sweet flavour and a mel­low dry fin­ish. The hag­gis meal costs £6.25 with a choice of soft drink and £7.25 with a choice of an al­co­holic drink. The High­land Burger meal costs £5.99 to £6.25 with a choice of soft drink and £6.99 to £7.25 with a choice of an al­co­holic drink. The Col­lege Arms man­ager, Ni­cholas Haste, said: “Burns’ Week is al­ways great fun and our cus­tomers en­joy the fact that we cel­e­brate for a week rather than just one day.”
