About The Howff

One of Union Street’s last remaining traditional pubs, The Howff is the first point of call for locals when looking for a cosy place to tuck into a hearty pub lunch, or to catch up with friends over a pint or two, becoming a fixture in the city centre since it was established back in the 90’s. Start off with a bowl of homemade soup accompanied by some freshly-baked bread or the haggis & black pudding bon bons before tucking into your main. From traditional British dishes like beer battered fish & chips, braised beef & Guinness pie and mince n skirlie (traditional beef mince, roast potatoes, garden peas and Yorkshire pudding) to other pub food favourites like mac n cheese, burgers and madras curry, there’s something to suit all tastes. Book a table and head on over!

Great food. Fast, attentive service. Great atmosphere. I think we hit the Howff at the best time for a quiet meal. We will certainly be back.

The food was really good - just like home cooking. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place was really busy, but our table was a little alcove at the back which was great. Two little faults though - they didnt know how to make an Irish coffee, so gave us small coffee's and an Irish whiskey shot - which we had a laugh with and enjoyed, and they didnt really have any heavy beers to choose from so hubby was a wee bit disappointed. But overall, we had a great time with lovely food, super staff and a bill that was suprisingly low considering everything we had.

The Howff is a basic pub with a good vibe. We had good evening, very busy so of course there is noise but did not affect service or being able to have a good yap. Fish pie was yummy.

Friendly staff who could give recommendations about ingredients and portion size. Varied menu and all 3 of us who were there thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be back! I can highly recommend the macaroni cheese and the home made haddock fishcakes.

excellent experience as per usual, welcoming staff with a smile, the option to e-mail in your food order on the morning of my booking was an advantage as we didn't need to wait long before our food arrived. Will return again.

We go to the Howff regularly and really like the atmosphere and pub food. Plenty to eat whether small plates or mains or snacks. Staff very polite and attentive. What a pub should be like.
