The Thinking Drinkers choose 3 bars celebrating Burns Night this evening when Scotland marks the birth of its national poet.

AT THIS cracking boozer there’ll be more auld Caledonian clichés than you can toss an enormous caber at tonight. Not content with the usual whisky and an optional three-course meal featuring haggis, venison and Orkney cheese, there will be kilts and sporrans, shortbread, Irn-Bru and Buckfast (the true spirit of Scotland). They’ve even promised that Braveheart and Sean Connery will make an appearance. Shurely not. And there should be some disco dancing too. Open till midnight.
