Burns Lunch

Did you know our head chef at Ivy House joined us from the 5 star hotel Gleneagles in Scotland so knows a thing or two about Scottish cooking!?

Phil has put together a 2 or 3 course lunch for you and a group of your friends or family to enjoy on Robert Burns Day - Saturday 25 Jan. Come and enjoy some traditional Scottish fare including "neeps and tatties" and perhaps a wee dram? Bookings call 01308 807053 or book online via our website here
