An Evening With Mistress Dodds
Mistress Meg Dodds was the formidable landlady of the Cleikum Inn near Peebles. For your evening, she will emerge from Sir Walter Scott’s novel, ‘St Ronan’s Well’, and into your dining venue to entertain you in pantomime style while you rest between courses. Who better than the Nigella Lawson of Scott’s time to tantalise your taste-buds and whip you with her whisk!
A woman of ‘uncertain age’, Mistress Dodds is of modest origin; warm-hearted; garrulous and infamous for speaking her mind. Staff – and guests – will tremble before this and rigorous task-mistress and superb cook. Enjoy her hospitality, homespun yarns and feast on her hot Cock-a-Leekie while you are entertained by scandalous stories of Scotland’s past.
The larger than life Mistress Dodds regales you and your guests with quirky tales of Scottish culture and cuisine - but: do you really want to know what’s in your haggis?!
“Everyone commented on the uniqueness of the venue and the event. Once again, many thanks for all your help!”
