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!

Was a great place to catch up with friends, with good food reasonably priced, a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Would definitely go back to when visiting Scotland.
Really great menu with good quality food at good prices.Service fast and bar staff friendly.Right in the heart of union street so very central.Would highly recommend for food or a few drinks with friends.
Staff were very helpful and very welcoming. The restaurant is small and cosy, especially for Valentine's Day. Food was lovely and not expensive at all.
Food was really delicious and the service was really good, couldn't do enough for you. Prices were really good as well. Couldn't fault anything on our recent visit.
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.
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.
Nice atmosphere and lovely staff. Food was very tasty and great value for money. First time customers but we will be back! Great place to start a night with friends.
Great place! The atmosphere is good, the people and food was wonderful. I would recommend the Howff when you are in Aberdeen looking for a place to hang out.
Booked for a girly lunch, the staff were really helpful and friendly - had a great afternoon there our food was excellent we will definitely be going back!
Tasty food, decent prices. Only down-side was by the time we were ready to order (our fault due to yapping) the daily special a few of us were going to order was finished.
A bit of a mix-up regarding the starters, but the service and the food were excellent. Very good burgers, that you would pay for more expensively elsewhere in the city.
Good food and friendly staff only down sound was music....grunge/metal not what should be playing in a low ceiling venue and middle aged clientele, wason to suit the staff.
Service was excellent, staff very polite, food was tasty ,hot, only complaint was skirlie it was lumpy .nice atmosphere .like most places caters for sport fans.busy as usual.
Great atmosphere. Had booked a table and was ready for us. Food was lovely, huge portions especially chips!!! And staff were friendly & helpful. Will definitely return.
The food was freshly cooked and delicious. A great atmosphere and the staff very attentive. Definitely warrants a return visit. Very central location, busy and inviting.
Visited Friday lunchtime and had an great lunch with work colleagues who all enjoyed themselves. Good food and excellent service in pleasant and friendly surroundings
Excellent service. Rooms and other rooms highly maintained. Location not so good especially when walking at night. We were there for theatre. Kettle broken- reported
We were unable to eat lunch at the Howff as it does not allow under 18's & I had my children with me. I tried calling repeatedly but no answer so just had to go elsewhere.
as there was a football game on we did not get a booking it was cancelled, when we arrived it was packed so did not stay.
