Eating & Drinking

Whether it's a coffee from Costa, a light snack or something more substantial, there's a wide range to choose from.

Make the most of the Aberdeen sunshine (or at least lack of rain) and eat out in the relaxed surroundings of our piazza style courtyard at Wagamama and Nandos, or in the beer garden of the Old School House. At night the Academy comes alive with a fun friendly atmosphere, perfect for drinks and socialising. Check out our latest addition, Bos’n, a Latin-American inspired Rum Lounge!

The Old School House

The Old School House is a city centre pub at the heart of the community. With friendly staff and an easy going atmosphere it’s the perfect place for a light family lunch or that big night out. With four separate sections coming off the main bar it’s ideal for functions of all shapes and sizes.

With 6 big screen TV’s and 2 giant projectors it’s the only place to be on match day. And of course it just wouldn’t be school without a quiz, every Thursday night. They also have a new pool table, a darts board and one of the best beer gardens in the city centre. The Old School House really does have something for everyone.
