Gorgeous old bank building refitted for a classic Spoons experience. A nice one with interesting and well-kept real ales. Seems to me the best place in Aberdeen if real ales, and Scottish ones especially, is what you're after.

We visited July 5th 2013. Very large pub, was quite busy, similar to other Whetherspoon’s I have been to. Good beer selection, around 10 cask ales. Long walk to the restrooms. Food absolutely ok.

Typical Spoons in a rather interesting building. 8 cask ales, all in good condition, quite cheap as well.

One of the nicer Wetherspoons pubs I have seen. They have a good range of beers (appx. eight casks) and the prices are great. The location is convenient, the staff friendly. They have the typical ’Spoons food, but I didn’t have anything. Certainly a nice place to visit for a few beers.

Scopey  (358) Croydon, England | September 21, 2011
Large, impressive ex-bank conversion designed by Archibald Simpson. Better than average Wetherspoons pub. There were 10 cask ales on offer at my last visit, which mostly consist of Scottish micros, including Isle of Skye, Cairngorm and Deeside. They also have a decent house ale called Castle Gait usually on. Beer condition has always been good when I’ve visited. Friendly staff and great value. However I would avoid this place when the football is on as it gets far too busy.

This pub is in a former bank building. The main room is in the high-ceilinged central hall and has many original architectural features. Seating areas to the side of the hall. A rather long walking to the toilets upstairs. A long bar, 12 handpumps (7-10 cask ales), many bottles from around the world-mostly light lagers.The house beer, Houston The Archibald Simpson 4,5 %, is a good cask ale. (Visited March 12th 2011)
