The Ashvale had been recommended to me by my Scottish colleague on several occasions should we find ourselves in Aberdeen.. And on this freezing cold Tuesday night that's where we ended up.. Must say I was secretly dying for a curry but one not to offend fish and chips it was.. It was ok.. I say ok as I can't... More

Hadn't been to sit in for many a year. Old school restaurant which is quite basic but serves all day and makes an ideal change from all the chain pubs. I had chicken fillets which were delicious and crispy if a tad chewy at the thin end but hard to avoid and the crispiness of the main part meant I... More

Booked a table for 6 at the weekend. Just as well we did as it was pretty full. 5 of us had standard haddock and one had the Whale. Clean plates all round. Beautifully cooked. Plenty of choices on menu and a few deals available depending on the time you dine. Much better than takeaway.

Really good family night fish and chips. Traditional not old fashioned and I would also ignore the duff reviews. I have been many times and... More

Called for a delivery, but not possible as it would be well over an hour. Helpful staff, Not. Asked to get the order ready and I would collect, got there and the order hadn't started. Got home and all four of us couldn't eat it. Pie had no meat, and the meat that was there looked green, chips were either... More

I was in Aberdeen visiting a customer and he took me to The Ashvale for lunch. We were quickly seated and ordered the lunchtime flyer, the food came quickly and the fish had light golden batter with white flakes of fish inside. I asked for mushy peas but got garden, wasn't a problem, very good fish and chips, good cup... More

Really old fashioned set up. Fish isn't cooked great, not cooked thoroughly in terms of batter. Lots of better options available

My wife and I a regular customers of the Ashvale ,We have always found the Seafood to be of consistent high quality and the prices very fair. From the management to the serving staff the service is always of a high standard. We would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

The service was attentive and prompt and the food was delicious for a very reasonable price.there was a mix of families couples young old and it was a relaxed happy atmosphere. The awards on display are well deserved... More
