The Noose and Monkey is one of Aberdeen’s most loved pubs, serving food & drink. Situated in the heart of the Rosemount area, right next to His Majesty’s Theatre, it’s a favourite destination for pre-show meals and drinks. The venue has been frequented by many famous stars performing at these shows including Jason Donavan, Paul O’Grady, Bella Emberg and most recently Elaine C Smith. Established in 2000, The Noose and Monkey had previously been known as ‘My Fathers Moustache’ and ‘The Silver Slipper’. She was given its unusual name by its previous owner and licensee who originated from Hartlepool. The story goes that during the Napoleonic Wars, fishermen from Hartlepool watched a French Warship founder off their coast. The only survivor was a monkey, dressed in French military uniform, presumably to amuse the officers on the ship. The fishermen assumed that this must be what Frenchmen looked like, and after a brief trial, they summarily executed the poor monkey by hanging.

Absolutely delicious Xmas gin cocktail .... pink grapefruit gin with lemon, elderflower and Prosecco! Highly recommend this place.... so handy for the HM Theatre and the Music Hall. The food is all home made too!
