Have visited here several times now for lunch. Husband has the fish, he says it's the best he's tasted!! Fussy 13yr old son loves the burgers. Food is reasonably priced, the staff are just lovely, and the place is spotlessly clean. Will be returning here every time we go to Aberdeen.

Menu to suit most people with a large selection of draft beers. Sit outside in the sun <when it's out> or take a comfy seat inside. the Old Schoolhouse is a great place to watch most sporting activities.

Visited with my husband. We both had the baguette, side and drink deal (£5.99 with soft drink, £6.99 with alcohol) I had sausage and onion, my hubby had chicken, bbq sauce and cheese. We both enjoyed it. The helping was more than adequate, service was quick and friendly. Could not have faulted it at all.

When it comes to chain bar food this paces stands out for me. Seem to make extra effort and skies about a lot of other chain bar places. Fairly priced too

Went for a meal and was pleasantly surprised by the quality,it is a nice bar but very much suited to the student clientele, lots of TVs on sports channels but good value and OK for a basic meal.

Description
We still get the odd customer who remembers being at school in this imposing granite building in one of the liveliest quarters of town - if only all educational establishments could be as a happy and welcoming as The Old Schoolhouse is today. Popular with a broad cross-section from mothers with children to students, football fans and people drawn to the wonderful beer garden at the front, it is a large bar full of intimate tables and lovely finished areas that are perfect for any party that you may be planning. We have six large screen HD televisions including two 84inch 4k HD tvs which makes us the perfect place for all live sporting events. Our food and bar menus cater for all tastes and interests. Drop in past any time you won't be disappointed.
