Scottish mastery of the alveolar tap renders secret recipes unnecessary, which is exemplified by outsiders’ original interpretation of "bangers and mash" as a rock-concert activity involving head banging and marshmallow puree. Engage in the more palatable eats from across the Atlantic with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Scottish pub fare and drinks at The Highlander Pub, located on Rideau Street.
The Highlander Pub is home to some 200 varieties of single-malt scotch whiskeys, as well as a main menu stocked with traditional Scottish favourites and eclectic, innovative hunger bashers. Pair a tasting portion of whiskey ($3.60–$81.25) with a wee taste of haggis ($10.95) or the popular Highlander cheese nachos, a tortilla, cheese, salsa, and vegetable concoction drizzled with purity marks of ranch dressing ($11.95). The solely Scottish menu features traditional tastings such as bangers and mash, with homemade semi-spicy sausages enhanced with a single-malt scotch, apple and leek cream sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, and Scottish colcannon ($11.95). Sweet teeth and sugar-seeking surface lickers will find solace in the classic apple crumble ($5.95) or the Baileys cheesecake, a light and creamy taste of decadence sitting stately atop a graham-cracker throne ($6.95).
Wooden stools and tables, earthy tones, and a bar showcasing the honey-hued alcohol oasis creates an authentic Scottish feel parallel to showing up at a castle-warming party in a handcrafted kilt. Appease neglected auditory needs with authentic live music or sit in the bright, flower-filled outdoor area with friends and family donned in their best bagpipe ties. Friendly staff will answer any questions you have concerning whiskeys, menu items, and safe Segway routes for traversing the Atlantic.
This deal is not valid on St. Patrick’s Day, New Year’s Eve, or Thanksgiving Eve.
- Good food, great atmosphere, fantastic scotch selection! – Scott L, Urbanspoon
- Without a doubt, by atmosphere alone, the Highlander is one of the liveliest pubs in the city. With a very large patio, up-tempo, usually Scottish-themed live music that's actually good, and a central location, the Highlander makes for good times. – Azim A., Yelp
