Set right beside the Bridge of Dee, Harvester Ghillies Lair is an inviting pub and restaurant that's bright and full of space. Floor to ceiling windows let light flood in, there are cosy booths that are perfect for family dining, and the menus include dedicated options for kids as well.

From its succulent grill selection to the celebrated unlimited salad bar, the Harvester menu is packed full of wholesome flavours for the whole family. Rotisserie chicken cooked in a secret blend of spices is available alongside tender smoked ribs marinated in signature BBQ sauce, while smaller tapas-style dishes are perfect for sharing, with options like spicy crackerjack prawns, and grilled chorizo with padron peppers. There are generous combo platters, juicy steaks, well-stacked burgers, and a great salad selection with premium additions.

All kinds of sweet treats are served on the dessert menu at this Harvester in Aberdeen. The sundae selection loads real dairy ice cream with toppings like warm chocolate fudge brownie, raspberries and honeycomb pieces, while classic British options like Bramley apple pie sit alongside international twists like key lime pie. From the bar, there are world beers, spirits, and speciality soft drinks for the kids.

Moments from the banks of the River Dee, Harvester Ghillies Lair is 6 minutes' drive from Aberdeen Rail Station.

    Nice place, waitress was very good but the food was average.

  • (**** 12 October 2017 by Doug from Aberdeen

    It was our 45th anniversary so we were looking forward to the meal. I had the roast chicken and my wife had the scampi, my chicken was overcooked and dry and the chips with both our meals had obviously been reheated and were overcooked dry and hard. I had a few bits of the chicken before giving up and we then shared the scampi and left the meals not even finishing our drinks.

    We booked a table for four and on arrival were offered a bench type seat in front of the food serving kitchen in what was designated for parents n children....our youngest member is 20!...On request a much better table in the glassed area by the river suited much better. Restaurant wasn't over busy for a lunchtime but service whilst pleasant was slow. Waitresses didn't seem very happy and struggled to smile and although all our food was lovely we did get a little frustrated at the timing. There were adverts in the (spotlessly clean) toilets for staff and we saw the assistant manager serving tables so probably just hit a bad time....a wee bit more smiling would have made up for the delays!!

    I had a lovely time in harvester. The meal (chicken and king prawns) were very lovely. The salad buffet could be slightly improved (i.e. Cut tomatoes in smaller part). Very friendly staff.

    My family loves dining here. The waiteress was lovely, the service was quick even on mothers day, the salad bar was delicious, the food was spot on, and overall atmosphere was really friendly and good too.

    Very enjoyable. Good service on a busy Father's Day.

    Great choice on the menu and lovely mains and salad. My daughter's red velvet cake she had for dessert got sent back as it was stale and my husband's Eton mess cheesecake was a little disappointing. Other wise everything was great and we have booked a table for Father's Day.
