Unfortunately, the owner announced on 16th September that the pub will not be opening ever again. After 25 successive years in the Good Beer Guide, this is a great blow to Aberdeen ale drinkers and all other regular customers. Thanks to Colin Watson for all the good times had in this pub over tha past 30 odd years.

Works by local artists displayed on the walls are for sale if they take your fancy. Convenient for the Music Hall and His Majesty's Theatre.
