I made the mistake of entering close to midnight, with music at full blast, smoke machines and people of all ages and sizes enjoying themselves. Weird. Nothing wrong with the beer, which also has low *Spoons prices.

Visited for breakfast on the mornings of Saturday 21/06/14 and Sunday 22/06/14. Nice venue as Spoons go, old bank I imagine. Unlike England you donít get beer from the off in Scotland. Think it was 10am Saturday and 11am Sunday. Selection was ok as spoons go, a few ticks beyond the standard house casks, mainly from Scottish micros. The service was decent, breakfast fine. Mainly a tourist crowd from the local hotels in for breakfast but a few hardcore locals on the íRed Tí at 10am! Worth a visit if in town.

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 Whetherspoonís 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 íSpoons food, but I didnít have anything. Certainly a nice place to visit for a few beers.

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 Iíve visited. Friendly staff and great value. However I would avoid this place when the football is on as it gets far too busy.
