Saturday saw the 2nd annual Coghlans Burns night Supper at Romaldkirk Reading Rooms in County Durham.
A special menu was served accompanied by the bagpipes and over 70 guests were seated on 2 large block tables decorated with Heathers and Black Watch Tartan.
The menu of Isle of Ewe smoked Salmon with the traditional accompaniments of grated eggs, capers, horseradish, fresh lemon and gherkins accompanied by freshly baked granary bread followed by haggis, neeps and tatties with a rich Whisky gravy and a shot of Whisky rounded off with a boozy Cranachan and a liqueur coffee to round off the evening.
The Toast to the haggis was theatrically delivered by Pete Blakeman with Dave Braithwaite reciting the Selkirk grace. All in all a great night and all are looking forward to next year’s event
Thanks also to village organiser Joan Anderson and service team led by Mark Price with Becky Richmond, Danny Richmond and Simon Lilley and Janet Coghlan hosting the Kitchen brigade
