News from The Marlborough Tavern: Burns Night, Vegan Night, Steak Night & splendid set menus
We’re eagerly anticipating raising a wee dram (or several!) to boisterous bard Robbie Burns at The Marlborough Tavern on Friday 25 January when a special 5-course menu featuring Scottish-inspired delights such as Cullen Skink, Isle of Skye scallops, beef fillet served with haggis, neeps and tatties (of course!) and Cranachan to the table for just £45pp. There’s a meat-free menu available for vegetarians, an optional wine flight (highly recommended) poised to accompany your feast for £25pp and a good (Tav) time guaranteed for all, kilt or no kilt. Là breith sona dhuit, Rabbie! But the tantalising news from the Tav doesn’t finish there…
On Wednesday 20 February, talented Tav Hob God Jack Scaterfield will be celebrating face-free feasting, presenting a collection of vegan dishes including miso aubergines with crispy noodles, homemade hoisin sauce, holy basil and peanut salad; cauliflower and sweet potato pakoras served with coconut lentil dahl; tempura banana blossom with nori chips, wasabe pea puree and pickled ginger tartare; and roasted celeriac and parsnip gnocchi with roasted piquillo peppers, black garlic puree and toasted walnut crumb. Tasty? Yes indeed – and so is the price for such imaginative indulgence: 5-courses, £40pp. Fancy a tipple to go with that? Upgrade to include the wine flight for just £25pp.
Meanwhile, the Tav’s new set lunch menu (2-courses/£15, 3-courses/£19) runs alongside the regular lunch menu every weekday, while the set dinner menu (2-courses/£19, 3-courses £23, available 6-7pm every Monday-Thursday evening) features favourite/classic dishes from the a la carte menu – both set menus offer amazing value for money. Talking of which (phew!)…. don’t forget that the first Tuesday of every month is the Tav’s legendary steak night: grab a juicy 28-day aged steak from just £12.50 (accompanied by fries and salad) and grab a bottle of Malbec to go with it for a tenner.
