Burns Night is an annual celebration of the life and work of the Scottish poet Robert Burns that takes place on or near his birthday, 25 January.
On this special night, people come together to enjoy a traditional meal, recite Burn’s poetry and raise a glass of whisky in his honour. This event has been taking place since 1801 and is still celebrated around the world today.
At its core, Burns Night is a wonderful way for Scots around the world to gather together in memory of one of their most famous sons – Robert Burns. It celebrates his legacy while also giving participants an excuse to indulge themselves in some delicious food, traditional music and good company all at once!
But, over the years, this celebration, much like St Partics day, is no longer reserved for just one cultural group and has become a celebration of the poet’s legacy and impact on the world as a whole.
So, for those who are in London and won’t be celebrating in a Highland castle this year, the legendary Home House has brought the north down south once again for its annual and iconic Burns Night Supper.
Spend Burns Night Supper At Home House
The club’s restaurant, which has a beautiful view of Portman Square, is the perfect place for members and guests to honour the life and legacy of the Scottish poet Robert Burns.
Members and visitors can anticipate a classic Burns Night celebration with a four-course meal, plenty of addressing the haggis, and Home House’s very own Burns Night piper in honour of the 18th-century poet.
All of the traditional Burns Supper specialities, such as Cullen skink (smoked haddock soup), Haggis neeps and tatties with whisky mustard sauce, Scottish steak pie with winter greens, and Blood orange and marmalade steamed pudding, have been given a contemporary twist on the menu created by executive chef Robert Panek.
Home House, which Lady Home first hired to entertain London’s high society in the late 18th century, still exudes a sense of regal splendour and is an ideal setting for lavish gatherings.
Home House is renowned for its opulent member parties, with the Burns Night Supper being a mainstay on our schedule of yearly member events. Home House is a shrine to hedonism and lives true to its name as a place where eccentric people can feel quite at home, according to managing director Andrew Richardson.
The cost of admission to the Home House’s Burns Night event is £85 for guests and £75 for members. Visitors who are not members can take advantage of Home House’s outstanding events, such as the Burns Night Supper, by visiting with a member or by making a reservation for one of the 23 distinctive bedrooms or suites.
