Decent beer and a good selection of ciders are always available. The food has improved heaps since i was last here. The steak pie or fish and chips are always a good standard selection. .But always check the boards for specials

The homemade pie was delicious. A lovely atmosphere and great views. If you was a table with sea view you probably need to book it.

My husband and I went to Cove Bay on the outskirts of Aberdeen, travelling South. Old Cove Bay is a very quaint village with a lovely little harbour, We walked down a very steep hill to the harbour and the cliffs which was great. The walk back up the hill is not for the fainthearted but we worked up quite... More

Back again at a family favourite. Always good value, always busy and always great food. Portions generous and all plates clean after everything eaten.

Really. Main course wasn't too bad. We were sat next to the kitchen, which was quite busy, one of the staff kicked the door to... More

Was out with husband and granddaughter when we dropped in on the off chance they would have a table for lunch. The decor in the restaurant is dated and badly needs brightening up and modernising.

Nice little restaurant around the corner from my office . Good food friendly service. Had the hickory chicken which was very nice. Would recommend for a business lunch or dinner with friends. The location is a little hidden but it has a nice view of the ocean from some of the tables.
