    Default Pubs / Deeside !!

    Hi

    I may be a bit "out of line" but when we have struggled a full day at the river where do we go ?
    The pub in Banchory (Golden Arms...??) or The Potarch Hotel or.....??
    (We stay in the Banchory area).

    We might go for som serious beers and fun on the Saturday we arrive.
    And in the week we also will go for a pint or two...

    Cheers...

    Golden Arms, assume you mean the Gordon Arms, probably as good as it gets, although I may be wrong of course

    Remember a lot of years ago, used to go to Banchory on a Sunday night & the Gordon was the place to be
    Tomorrow is another day, so is the next

    I stayed in Banchory 2 years ago and had a great time in the pubs and even the tiny little night club, cant remember much about the club as a great night was had by all.

    I am prety sure we went in the Gordon Arms every night and had a real good laugh with the land lord and some of the locals.

    Must get back some time.

    A fine pub in Banchory is The Stag.
    Good beer, open late, live music at the weekend....


    Enjoy.

    Outside of Banchory The Potarch Hotel ("Potties" ) is probably the best 'fishing' pub in area.... or it used to be at. Concentrate heavily on food these days and not such a great place for a few ales as it once was but still worth a visit as is the Feughside Inn at Strachan.

    In Banchory itself The Burnett Arms http://www.burnettarms.co.uk/ is always worth a visit for a beer or 5 as is the Douglas Arms http://www.douglasarms.co.uk/ and not forgetting The Stag - all handily within staggering distance of each other
    The nightclub in Parkers Bar which becomes DJs club on Fridays and Saturdays (I think ).

    I don't know of a Gordon Arms in Banchory, the only one I know of is the Gordon Arms in Aboyne which is OK but if you're in Aboyne I'd suggest a visit to the Boat Inn which overlooks the river http://boatinnaboyne.co.uk/

    Hope that helps with your search for beer Henke

    Cool Nice

    You have no choice really:

    Straight after fuishin go to the Pot[arch] - currently redefining itsel' after the legendary Mike 'Lads' Boyle era

    After, in Banchory well:

    If it is a normal night the Stag

    If a Friday/Saturday night the Stag followed by Parker's Lounge

    No true 'Tour Colours' may be awarded until you have done the Stag and Parker's - lots of people talk a good game on this combo - let's see if you Vikings still have what it takes.....

    Sweet

    Hamish, I think you are correct, there isn't a Gordon Arms in Banchory, I was getting confused with the Douglas Arms

    Old age I assume
