Prince of Wales: "Braw!" Top 5 Page for this destination Aberdeen Nightlife Tip by iaint

Aberdeen Nightlife: 37 reviews and 19 photos

The Prince. One of the first pubs I was in during freshers? week in September 1970. A ?fresher? is a new student just arrived at Aberdeen University. They (the student union) run a week of induction festivities, designed to make sure your student loan/allowance evaporate in double quick time.

So it was fun to be back in September 2011. It would have been my first visit since the 70s.

A trio of us escaped the enforced fellowship of the Rotary conference we were attending to have a pizza and a few pints in town. Just to prove we could, really.

It?s a traditional pub. Established in 1850. Good beer, good service and no frills.

Location is key - up a lane just off George Street and 20 yards from Union Street. Close to all important points, including a taxi rank.

Braw (as they say in Fife - and Sweden).

Dress Code: No, no, no!
