Robert Burns a Scottish poet and lyricist, Born January 25, 1759 wow! that’s a long time ago. What better way to spend Robbie Burns Day than at the Black Bull neighbourhood pub, I walked into this pub and immediately was transformed to the British way of things. The Black Bull has been a favourite of Burlington for 25 years plus. The smell of Guinness beer, British accents, and Football is what was going on this afternoon, as I stopped in for lunch. This pub is full authentic British fare. Now traditionally you would have had Haggis to celebrate this Robbie Burns day, but the thought of Sheep’s Stomach filled with offal freaked a few people out that I was with. (Yes I would have given it a go, and yes I called them sissy’s) The Fish & Chips were bang on, a huge portion of tender haddock dipped in beer batter, served traditionally with hand cut Yukon fries, coleslaw & house made tartar sauce. Our Cabbage soup was stocked with large pieces of cabbage in every bite we took. Perfect for the snowy day we had today, warm and extremely hearty. Our grill cheese from the kids menu, was kid approved. I quite enjoyed myself today at the Black Bull Pub, its great to see people come together and just enjoy a beer, some football, and some great company. I will absolutely revisit the Black Bull British Pub.
” ah the power that gift would give us, to see ourselves as others see us”
