The pub is found in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, AB25 1BU.

An Aberdeen stalwart of real ale is now down to serving a single beer through the traditional tall font. The lounge bar is probably the best and most atmospheric music venue in the city with a wide range of of jazz, blues, folk and more modern music. Small, intimate public bar is a great place for a chat.

We have visited this pub 65 times, seen 23 different beers and tried 22 of them.
