Plough Round Up - Burns Night Special
All you need to know is tonight we will have:
So, get brushed up on old Rabbie’s ‘Address to Haggis’ and see you there:
Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o’ the pudding-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm :
Weel are ye wordy o’a grace
As lang’s my arm.
The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
Your pin wad help to mend a mill
In time o’need,
While thro’ your pores the dews distil
Like amber bead.
His knife see rustic Labour dight,
An’ cut you up wi’ ready sleight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
Like ony ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Then, horn for horn, they stretch an’ strive:
Deil tak the hindmost! on they drive,
Till a’ their weel-swall’d kytes belyve
Are bent like drums;
Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
Top 50 for Coffee: We’ve had a fantastic caffeinated fuelled start to the New Year, mainly driven by our listing in the Independent’s 50 Best Coffee Shops - including a flat white crafted in The Plough on the front cover.
Brewing Something Special: In order to celebrate this, along with the new year, we have got a little something in from our coffee roasters Has Bean, to kick start 2013 the right way and brush off the cobwebs and foggy heads caused by the indulgences of the festive period. Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourself for Has Bean’s ‘Hangover Cure’.
A full on punch in the face of an espresso, described by our suppliers as ‘ying and yang have a pub brawl in your mouth’ sounded too good to resist (not that we condone brawls in our establishment, only in our mugs.) This is a limited edition blend with only 1000 bags and we have 24 of them, and believe me, they’ll go quick.
Thank You to Early Risers: You may have noticed that we’re opening our doors for brunch from 8 am on weekdays now (with a 2 for 1 on breakfasts to tempt you in), but if you grab a hot beverage then we’ll be sure you give you a coffee reward card - 7 stamps on you’ll get a coffee of your choice on us.
Cheers to 2012: You were a great year! Thank you to our loyal customers for sticking with us while we made The Plough a better place. Now we’re open again in full swing and we couldn’t be more excited for 2013. We hope to see you soon and remember to let us know what you think.
