Our chefs have been hard at work planning a very special menu that highlights the best of Scotland and is worthy of celebrating this amazing gentleman.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with who Robbie Burns was, please allow us to enlighten you and share why this day is so important to Scotland and those of Scottish descent.
Robbie Burns was a Scottish poet and songwriter from the pre-romantic era. In fact, he’s widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is often believed to be the pioneer of the Romantic movement, a significantly important period in British literature.
Born on January 25th, 1759 in Scotland, Robbie Burns was known for his rebellious nature. Not only did he insist on writing in the Scottish dialect, he was also outspoken in his rebellion against religious and political rulers, which caused a number of significant consequences in his personal life for himself and those he loved.
Although he had political leanings, Burns’ main focus was always on his creative and artistic spirit. He spent his days doing what he loved to do, which was to write. Burns became very well known for his poetic tributes to nature; for poetry that was emotionally charged; and that celebrated the individual.
Burns earned a reputation for his spontaneous and unique personality and at Glenerin Inn we’re excited to invite you to join us in celebrating this important historic poet and lyricist. What better place to raise a glass to the Bard and join in a Scottish ballad (or two) than at our historic Inn?
Come join us at Glenerin Inn for our perfectly planned event in honour of Robbie Burns and take in our tasteful Scottish meal, wonderful Scottish music, and more! We are very excited to share this beautiful evening with everyone who loves this day and the poet as much as we do. Join us for our fabulous Robbie Burns Event.
