The Furness Railway pub in Barrow will be celebrating the life and poetry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns by hosting a 10-day Burns event.

It will run from January 17-26 with Burns’ Night on Saturday January 25.

To mark the occasion the pub will be serving two special meals; Scottish haggis, neeps and tatties, as well as Caledonian Burger (6oz beef patty, haggis, whisky sauce, chips and six beer-battered onion rings).

Customers will also be able to enjoy a guest ale, Harviestoun Haggis Hunter (4.3% ABV), from Scotland’s Harviestoun Brewery, in Clackmannanshire.

The beer, which is made using Bobek, Cascade, Celeia, East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops, is described as a tawny-coloured ale. It has a spicy, floral hop aroma with a fruity, hoppy flavour and is the ideal accompaniment to the haggis meal. It will be on sale at £2.15 a pint.

The haggis meal will cost £6.10 with a choice of soft drink and £7.10 with a choice of an alcoholic drink.
