Newest Review: ... the vodka bar, ect) booths tends to be for the quieter more serious drinker. The jukebox has more rock classics than cheesy chart tunes (one of the few pubs with blue oyster cult!) so if looking for somewhere not so full of students try here but if you are female i would warn you that it is more than likely that some old slime will try to hit on you with some very cheesy lines. however if in ... more

although situated with the best 'student' pubs on the 'square' (slains, the boar,Ma's, the hogshead, the vodka bar, ect) booths tends to be for the quieter more serious drinker. The jukebox has more rock classics than cheesy chart tunes (one of the few pubs with blue oyster cult!) so if looking for somewhere not so full of students try here but if you are female i would warn you that it is more than likely that some old slime will try to hit on you with some very cheesy lines. however if in a large group of students i would recomend you skip this one and go straight on to the next pub as the atmosphere there will more than likely be friendlier ...

Booths has been around for a long time. It's an okay pub; the prices are comparable with every other pub in town. It's really an "old" person's pub. I've only been in it a couple of times, although my partner's been in more often. It's very quiet. You can pretty much guarantee a seat. The decor is clean but drab. There are adequate toliets but they're upstairs and the ladies is exceptionally tiny. Booths does have a great selection of beers/ales to chose from though, if that's your cup of tea. You'll find them chalked up above the bar. If you try every ale in one sitting, I estimate you'll be ... Read the complete review

J.J. Booths has been a part of Aberdeen's pub life for a good few years. It is located on Back Wynd, a road off of the centre of Union Street. Very central for anyone looking for a pub to go to while in the centre of town. A perfect stop for the weary shopper. Inside it is quite dark. Poorly lit. It is decorated in the ole' quaint pub theme like alot of the older pubs are. That stained yellow wall look, and big boards advertising what is on offer to the pub goer. As many pubs do they serve food as well as drinks. J.J. Booths is well know for the pies that they serve. A bowl containing a filling covered by pastry. A favourite with anyone who has ...

J.J. Booths pub is situated in the Back Wynd in Aberdeen, just off Union Street. The location makes it handy place to pop into for a quick pint or lunch while you are hitting the shops on a Saturday afternoon. The pub has a very traditional feel to it - no plastic tacky bits- with the only concession being a large screen for football and a couple of TVs. There is a large bar so getting served isn't a problem. The range of beer is fairly standard for a pub - lots of lager, beers, Guinness but not a huge range of the alcopop drink variety. It's not that kind of pub! There are plenty of seats set in cosy nooks so it feels a very warm and ... Read the complete review
