Traditional pub, located in a small alley just off Union Street, close to Sainsbury. Long bar at the right when entering, with a lot of different beers on tap. Prince of Wales, is in fact Inveralmonds Friars Tipple, which is also a popular house beer for other pubs & bars in Scotland. Dark wooden interior, well behaved employees, few guests at my visit, seems to be a place to relax away from the busy Union Street, and its just 3 minutes away from CASC.

Decent place, as they have a couple of local real ales. Cask Marque, but the house bitter was off form. The most important thing you need to know is this: ***If you value all that is good, just, and true in life, do not eat here.*** Josh and I made this mistake, and it was worse than expected. If you are a glutton for punishment, you are better off at the Wetherspoons nearby (The Archibald Simpson). Same grim hospital food quality with a bigger, better tap list.

We visisited this pub July 4th 2013 after playing Royal Aberdeen. Very nice pub with a long bar which is inviting you to sit directly in front of the taps. They serve 8 real ales, we had Bohemian from Green King and Lia Fail from Inveralmond brewery, both very delicious with the right temperature. Nice service and good food too. Next we will go to Brewdog!

Cosy pub just off Union Street, easy to miss. Seems to be quite popular with the locals. About 8 cask ales of varied quality on during my visit. Prices and service are ok.

Very much an Aberdeen institution, but again one which has deteriorated (at the very least in beer choice) since itís acquisition by Belhaven / Greene King. Still worth a visit to see a traditional local bar, just donít expect to find anything very interesting.

Very much like JDW bars (this is not a negative remark). 8 casks. Also interesting ones. Quite cheap prices. Much easier place to blend in than Musa we came here from. Would definitely visit again.

Nice pub in central Aberdeen, just off the east end of Union Street. They had a decent range of cask ales on my visit with several new ones for me. The pub itself if dark and cozy, with lots of seating options. The bartender was very kind and attentive. Good prices. I didnít eat any food on my visit. A very solid pub, and together with the Old Blackfriard and Archibald Simpson makes a very nice one-two-three punch. Check it out.

One of my all-time favourite pubs. On most nights, the bar is long enough to let the regulars sit in peace without interfering with service. The staff are very friendly, and thereís usually one or two on hand to recommend a decent pint. The interior is your classic old-manís pub; hard wood, comfy chairs, et al. Itís immediately welcoming. The 8 beer taps have 5 guests, which regularly change. This sometimes means thereís a night where youíre not too keen on any, but itís worth checking in a few nights later to see whatís new. If all else fails, the house ale is a fairly solid Inveralmond brew (very close to Ossians). Food wise, itís decent pub grub - the steak and ale pie being something of a local legend - and reasonably priced (£6.25 a main). One of the only Belhaven owned pubs to have itís own menu. Apart from beers, thereís a bountiful selection of malts to choose from, usually no more than £2.30 a nip for the more premium ones.

Visited on many, many occasions. Traditional Scottish Pub, located on a small lane, just off Union Street. Inside there is a large bar with a 8 cask ale dispensing mostly Scottish Ales from the likes of Black Isle, Isle of Skye, Trad Scottish Ales and Cairngorm. The beer is always well kept and they also have a house ale made by Inveralmond. For those who care the whisky selection is also good and great value. The interior is traditional and cosy. I would personally give the food a miss, but itís cheap and cheerful if thatís your thing. Please note this is unsurprisingly a very popular and busy pub, so you may want to avoid rush-hour. When in Aberdeen this is a must-visit.

Traditional bar with a good selection of well cared for cask ales including their own Prince of Wales Ale from Inveralmond. Satisfactory service & prices
