The Prince of Wales: proud to be all talk

With its low lighting, wood-panelled walls and an atmosphere steeped in tradition, The Prince of Wales is a homely, welcoming place to escape the bustle of the city and enjoy a pint of Belhaven Best Extra Cold. A natural place for a chin-wag, it's a long-standing meeting point for Orcadians and Shetlanders after they arrive at the nearby ferry terminal as well as any Aberdonian who appreciates the good things in life. The only time the lively conversation stops is during the pub quiz on a Monday night, with its £50 Gift Card for first place winners, £30 for second place and £10 for third place. As well as this there is also the varied live music on a Sunday.
