“Worst wine I have ever tasted!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Came here for a drink & food over a month ago but after getting a Chardonnay that tasted off, we decided against eating there. Tried again this weekend hoping it was a blip but once again undrinkable swill for wine. My fiancé took it back only to be told the bottle wasn't long open & although she gave him another one I think it was from the same bottle! Either she was lying or they have the most awful wine supplier. We won't be back which is a real shame as this place used to be good!

Hi Yvonne,

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy our Chardonnay. The Chardonnay we serve is our entry level white wine, and as such may not be to everyone's taste. We do serve a large selection of wines - white, red and rosé and hopefully we have something you will enjoy. If you would like to email us at aberdeen@oneills.co.uk we would be delighted to provide you with a voucher to try some of our other wines on the house, which hopefully you will enjoy more. Hopefully, the wine aside, you enjoyed your visit, if not please let us know what we can do to improve your experience.

Thank you very much for the feedback,

Awaiting your response,

Chris

“Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

we stopped here for something to eat when I remembered I had a discount voucher for this pub - but on checking it - it had expired.
- don't eat here on a Sunday - almost everything we asked for was off or no longer available
- the service was attentive but disappointed with the grub

“Definitely went downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

I used to come to O'Neills on a regular basis with friends but stopped for a while when the food and service seemed to go downhill. I returned again after about 18 months but to be honest it seems even worse now. The bar staff were friendly enough but didn't really seem interested. We ordered food and my macaroni was ok if a bit dry and cold but my friends lamb dish with herb cobbler was terrible. It was a very small portion for the price and the chef had forgotten the soda bread that went with it; after asking the waiter for it he said he didn't know if it came with bread and walked away! We asked another and the chef came out with two huge slabs of bread but no butter. After asking again for butter it took almost 5 mins for the butter to come. The cobbler on top of the lamb were a disgrace, it was brick hard and the fork and knife wouldn't cut through it. We told the waiter and the chef came with some replacements in record time but it was obvious they were the frozen ones you microwave. Very poor and don't think I will be back in a hurry.
