The Ceilidh Bar and lounge have retained much of their original Victorian stylings, including wood panelled beams and natural wooden floors. The lounge also benefits from a lovely open fireplace which creates a cosy atmosphere in the evenings and keeps you warm during the days of the cooler months.
Hot and cold sandwiches and a selection of cakes are available from our lounge service menu until 2.30pm, with hot drinks being available any time. Braw 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.
The Ceilidh Bar, furnished in Scottish tweeds with a contemporary feel, seats 55, with standing room for up to 75 guests, making for a great crowd when we have a night of live music on. Terrorvision frontman Tony Wright, Roddy Woomble of Idlewild, plus regular jam nights with Alisdair “Pops” Johnson and friend have been just some of the action Deeside has seen of late.
