About the Pub

Historic harbour-side bar, in recent years re-branded as Krakatoa, but will always be the Moorings to its many regulars. It changes character from friendly laid-back local to raucous rock bar on weekend evenings, when there may be a cover charge after 8.45.

The eclectic jukebox is in regular use by the varied clientele. A wide selection of Scottish ales are served on 12 American style fonts (not all used simultaneously) situated to the far left of the bar.

There are also two other similar banks dispensing various craft/keg and Belgian beers and one of the largest draught cider selections in the city. Each of the three banks of pumps has an electronic display clearly showing what type of tipple they serve. Canned Craft and German/Belgian bottles are also available

Multiple local CAMRA City Pub of the Year winner and overall branch winner in 2015 & 2018. A discount of 30p is offered on pints of real ale on production of a CAMRA membership card and a regulars discount scheme is also in place.

Live music every Friday and Saturday evenings, often hosting local band competitions, and there may be a cover charge. On Wednesday evenings a rock karaoke session is held.

Cheese lunchboxes containing cheeses from local cheese shop on Rosemount and slices of salami are available all day.
