Belhaven (Greene King)

About the Pub

One of the oldest bars in Aberdeen, the Prince of Wales has possibly the longest bar counter in the city, a friendly atmosphere and a large following of regulars. It was refurbished in late 2016 and is listed in Scotland's True Heritage Pubs. It offers up to eight ales - a varied selection of ales from mostly Scottish breweries plus occasional English ales and usually at least two from the Greene King/Belhaven stable. It also has four 'craft' beer pumps for BrewDog, Belhaven, Amstel and Aspall's Cider. Tasters are offered if you are not sure what to chose.

A good pub, only noisy with conversations, but has an unnecessary TV screen which, thankfully, is seldom used. Good value food is served daily till 9pm with filled rolls also available.

Folk music plays every Sunday evening.
