Bar & Lounge

In the Ceilidh Bar and lounge, guests can mix with locals.

Deeside Inn is a popular pick for regular live music as much as traditional Scottish suppers of haggis and Deeside fish pie. Single malts from the nearby Whisky Trail join local bottled brews and guest draught ales on the bar list. Victorian afternoon tea around a roaring fire is an established daily event in the comfort of the lounge.

Bar Menu

Sandwiches and light bites are served daily in the afternoon. Scottish Suppers can be ordered in the evenings with traditional dishes of stovies, haggis, neeps and tatties and Aberdeenshire fish pie, served in the bar.
