Burn’s Night at MacKenzies Restaurant is always special with it’s historic connection.  Our resturant is named after the famous Henry MacKenzie who was an Edinburgh born lawyer and writer, who lived in the cottage adjacent to the restaurant.

Henry MacKenzie was best known for his novel ‘The Man of Feeling’.

Mackenzie, while editor of a short lived weekly periodical “The Lounger” wrote an article in December issue 1786, giving one of the earliest tributes to the genius of Robert Burns poems. This helped to make Robert Burns a well known name in literary circles.

Burns himself regarded ‘The Man of Feeling’ as “a book I prize next to the Bible”.

Over the years we have had many wedding parties at MacKenzies Restaurant.  In fact, three couples have “tied the knot” in our back room.

The restaurant is ideal for smaller wedding parties who want to have a restaurant style meal with lots of choices. Both our rooms hold either 40 or 35 people and the happy couple are able to enjoy the day as everything is arranged for them.

We would have a meeting before the event so that menus and wines can be chosen, seating plans arranged and ideas on speeches and toasts discussed.

Please contact us if you wish to discuss holding your wedding meal at our restaurant and we would invite you to come and talk to us about your day.
