Great atmosphere, lovely bar, attentive staff.

Reason why it doesn’t get 5 stars is because it’s the second time I’ve been recently and a fair number of the gins on the menu haven’t been available.

I couldn’t have been more disappointed tonight. I had booked a table at 8pm to celebrate my
Birthday with my friends. We were having a great time until at 9:40pm the waitress plonked the bill on the table for us to pay “as soon as possible”. I’m my confusion I asked if it was closing time, but I was told that there was another booking, we had to leave, and the bill was waiting for us to pay. We were rushed out of the bar (which I had hoped to spend more time in) after we had spent a substantial amount of money on food and bottles of wine. I had hoped we would be able to enjoy the rest of our evening in grape and grain but we were rushed out as though we weren’t welcome. It is important to note that the group sitting to our left and right (in the booths) were there before us and were permitted to stay after us too - the set amount of time didn’t seem to apply to them! Obviously their custom was appreciated but ours was not. For whatever reason I was made to feel that my custom was substandard to all of the other patrons in the bar that evening. To be perfectly honest it was rude and disrespectful (especially considering the next guests that had booked our booth didn’t seem to appear!). Usually I do not leave reviews, but felt it was important to leave this review as I was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED and will not be returning to this bar.

This is a fantastic place if you want to drink and talk. The music isn't too loud, the decor and atmosphere is great, the staff are attentive and the drinks, given the above, are value for money.

So, I’ve lived in Aberdeen for 6 years and never visited this place. I had walked past it a few times and not noticed, but wow - what a hidden gem of Aberdeen.

Beautiful decor and fantastic atmosphere- I brought my partner and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly, attentive and recommended drinks based on what we like with absolutely no sign of being pretentious.

If you’re on a first date, a 100th date, with a group of friends or have visitors to Aberdeen, this seems like the perfect place. It gives that vibe. I’ll be back with my partners parents when they visit at the end of the month. Thanks! Ian

Before going out for a family meal we went to the bar for a drink. First time out in a long time.
Before we went in we did the check in once we opened the door there was a table with hand gel. We were shown to our table by a member of staff.
Although it was quiet I felt so safe. Infact it was better than the shops. Every measure has been taken to make sure all the customers are made to feel welcome as-well as safe. Everything has been done to make sure everyone who enters the door is safe and everyone can even thought there are restrictions safe.

Hi Euan, we always consider all feedback received. As a result, we have reviewed CCTV and discussed your review with staff & other guests present on Saturday night. You were the guest of a lovely regular couple who had a booking at 22:15. Sadly, without notice, your party arrived late for the reservation. As a popular bar with a small capacity, our policy states reserved tables will be offered to others after 15 mins – the claim there was no space was correct. However, our team assured you despite your late arrival, we would still be able to accommodate you and requested you wait at the bar – your party was seated at 22:40 after a 10-minute wait. Unfortunately, you took exception to our request and began to verbally abuse our staff, making demands you were seated immediately, and compensated – wholly unacceptable in any circumstance. We ask that you use TripAdvisor to provide potential guests with useful information and give feedback that will enhance the experience of others in the future. If you wish to discuss grievances, we always recommend reaching out to our manager or proprietor - we have discussed the evening already with a member of your party earlier this morning.

Went with our daughter who lives in Aberdeen on her recommendation. Booked a table for 8pm on Saturday night and was delighted we did not feel in the least bit ‘encouraged’ to drink up and leave so they could re-book the table.
The decor was very opulent - probably Christmas decor as it was very sparkly. Lovely dark and rich colours with accents of rose gold.
We sat in a generous and comfortable booth which felt very private and we were able to hold a conversation without had to shout to be heard.
Nice touch to have phone charging tables and the lighting was bright but not glaring rather than the gloom so often used in bars.
Fantastic drinks selection and knowledgeable staff. We enjoyed a variety of gins with pared tonic and had a mixed cheese and charcuterie platter.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and enjoyed the atmosphere and the service.
Definitely recommended for couples or a group of friends.
My husband went to pay the bill and when he returned and I asked him how much it was - the platters were not priced and I was curious to see how much they cost.
Realised that we had only been charged for the gins. We could have walked away as he didn’t notice just payed what it said on the bill but like 99% of people we were honest and he went back to point out that we had not been charged for the platter.
Disappointingly his honesty was not acknowledged.
A lovely bar, nicely styled, great drinks selection, friendly knowledgeable staff. A most enjoyable Saturday night out in Aberdeen.

I love this bar so much it's now my go to place for a relaxing chat over a g&t, or a delicious glass of wine, with my partner and friends.
It's a stylishly comfortable bar with a fantastic selection of gins,vodkas, and other spirits, together with a brilliant choice of gorgeous wines.
The service from the friendly staff is very attentive, without being in your face, and you're made to feel so welcome and comfortable.
Grape and Grain is right up my street and I don't see the point of going anywhere else for a drink, to be honest!
