Disgusting treatment by a member of staff at end of meal and not given the correct information by the staff when we got there

The two ladies that served us were lovely and looked after us well. They explained the rules fully and were making sure everyone adhered to them. The hostelry felt like a safe environment.

Meatless burger good addition but you need to include a vegan cheese slice, some vegan mayo and make it as juicy and inviting as the meat one my other half had! If you need to increase the price I (and most vegans) would gladly pay a few quid more - in most places the vegan burger is on par with the meat one cost wise. The wild boar does an amazing meatless burger with toppings if you want ideas!!

Fantastic service in difficult times. Staff had to deal with a very awkward customer at the next table but they handled it calmly.

One of my favourite pubs in Aberdeen, always great drinks, food and service! They're doing a great job under difficult circumstances with all the COVID requirements

Brilliant meal and drinks! Selection of gins was amazing and the “perfect” pint of Guinness extra cold! Haggis Bon bons are the best I’ve every had! Great service very safe and the lady on the door was brilliant making sure everyone was aware of the rules in a fun but informative manner. Spaced out tables still a lovely atmosphere without the aid of music. Never been before however will be back soon! My new local I think!

Best haggis burger I’ve ever had. Portions are massive too. Not really McGinty’s fault about the atmosphere. All the pubs have no atmosphere at the moment due to not being aloud to have sound/music on.

Good CoVid protocols in place , but, not "over the top". Atmosphere friendly. Food good. Good selection of beers/lagers and coffee if you fancy that.

No atmosphere only because there was no background music but nothing McGinty’s can do as need to follow Government rules, will definitely be back!

Put craft beer and food into Google search for Aberdeen and Mcgintys came up, on this experience really not sure why. The staff were lovely but to order you need to download the app. The wi-fi was cr*p and it took both of us 10 minutes to download the app. There was a total of around 6 people in the whole place so no real excuse for that. Then the beer available did not match the app (found a fierce beer on the bar as we left) no such beer on the app 🙄. £12 for a Caesar with chicken and bacon, mmm ok but not when the chicken is highly anaemic and come in what looks like pre-packed cubes. A place with nice servers, much potential but otherwise average across the board. Disappointing but could be great with a little effort?

Very good set up. Appropriately distanced etc However, same hygienic levels the public are held accountable for don’t seem to apply to staff. Empty Glasses being picked up with fingers in the glass (where people had been drinking from), not sanitising then taking the glasses of new drinks to people (not on a tray). I know this sounds a bit persnickety but given Aberdeen’s latest outbreak I feel bars as well as the public need to do their bit.
