“The Noose and Monkey is one of Aberdeen’s most loved pubs, serving food & drink. Situated in the heart of the Rosemount area, right next to His Majesty’s Theatre, it’s a favourite destination for pre-show meals and drinks. The venue has been frequented by many famous stars performing at these shows.
Established in 2000, The Noose and Monkey had previously been known as ‘My Fathers Moustache’ and ‘The Silver Slipper’. She was given it’s unusual name by it’s previous owner and licensee who originated from Hartlepool. The story goes that during during the Napoleonic Wars, fishermen from Hartlepool watched a French Warship founder off their coast. The only survivor was a monkey, dressed in French military uniform, presumably to amuse the officers on the ship. The fishermen assumed that this must be what Frenchmen looked like, and after a brief trial they summarily executed the poor monkey by hanging.”Noose and Monkey Website

“The cobbled pedestrian area outside Old Blackfriars was used to hold public executions and it is the site where people rose up against the English garrison in Aberdeen’ castle and using the password ‘Bon Accord’ began the destruction of the castle.
Today Bon Accord is the City’s motto. Across the road, the Tollbooth has been the site of civic administration since 1398.
The site of pub was owned by Dominican monks, known as Blackfriars, and the stained glass and pews were taken from a local chapel and provide a suitable atmosphere for this 350 year old building. That’s why the moment you enter this atmospheric pub, it’s like stepping back in time. With its two levels, low-beamed ceiling and ecclesiastical fittings, it makes you feel as if you’re sitting alongside several centuries of drinkers.A Story to Tell: Scotlands Pubs and Bars
The pub has an extensive menu of freshly prepared food, which is available all day and is loved by locals, families, shoppers, real ale drinkers, tourists and, allegedly a ghost or two! With its no television policy, Old Blackfriars knows exactly what makes a traditional pub tick. Look out for the Tuesday quiz and the Thursday Scottish music jam sessions as well as the changing line-up of real ales and the impressive malt.”

Scottish oatcakes, cheeses, chutneys and fruit available on the cheese slates and the charcuterie is second to none with rich venison salami to mention just one of the offerings accompanied with some beetroot and chilli relish all locally sourced.
