Independently owned and designed, The Spiritualist is a far step away from anything ordinary. It’s enticingly elegant with a touch of cool. Located in the centre of Aberdeen, it’s a place to linger on your own any time of day over a paper and coffee; to relax with family and friends over lunch and dinner or for an evening of cocktails.

Our guests are welcome to book tables where availability allows but we always keep a few tables reserved for walk ins and spontaneity! If you don’t see a table at the time you require, please consider popping in, having a drink at the bar and waiting for a table to become free. You do not require a vaccine passport to join us.

    Went on a Saturday night for food and a few drinks. It is a busy place but has a nice atmosphere and you don’t feel rushed. Food was lovely and ordered the four pint tower which was decent. Would recommend

    Very disappointed seated very quickly and drinks order taken, food order taken 10 minutes later, however food turned up before drinks which we waited 20 minutes for. Had been in Aberdeen specifically to go to The Spiritualist as the few times we were there in 2021 it had been fantastic.

    The Spiritualist AberdeenResponded on August 2, 2022Hi Andrewm thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback. I'm sorry to hear you waited 20 minutes for your drinks. We pride ourselves on elaborate, made to order amazing cocktails and sometimes it takes a bit longer than we would like to get them perfect and to your table. Thank you again for taking the time to let us know how we can improve. We hope you will consider us again in the future. Take care.

    Once again, we had a lovely lunch, this time doing the Brunch deal which was great value. We were served by the lovely Rianne, such a warm, friendly, yet efficient waitress who made us feel very welcome and well looked after. Thanks again, we’ll be back soon!

    The Spiritualist AberdeenResponded on June 24, 2022Jonathans, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your experience with us. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Lovely place nice menu but food and service was poor. 45 min wait for two burgers and the plant based burger was over cooked dry and the bun burnt. Large staff group came in 20 mins after us and seemed to get the attention.

    Not a great experience , booked a table here for my family as i seen they had a childs menu so thought would be suitable for children also, staff was not very accomodating and after waiting 1 & 1/2 hours for our main meal to arrive we gave up and left. Paying over £110 pounds for 4 small starters and some drinks and made to feel like a burden wasnt what i had planned for the evening. Although what little food we did have was somewhat decent i wouldnt be rushing back or recommending anyone to.

    Beautiful restaurant/bar, brilliant cocktails, great atmosphere. Food pretty average to poor, although the fish tacos were AMAZING. Service was AWFUL. Waited 10-15mins to get a glass of wine and a beer. Were there for almost 2 hours and most of it was sitting with empty glasses or waiting for food, which was also incredibly slow to come. Glad we went to have a night here one time, but would not go back based on the incredibly poor, slow service, and average food.

    Cocktails were lovely but food was very disappointing. We went for a special graduation meal as we used to love the food at The Spiritualist. The menu has been reduced and choice was very limited & expensive but we all found something we could order. We were so disappointed the burgers were cold, fries were limp and soft and cold. The prawn Katsu was literally one wee prawn on a roll. The only positive of the meal was that once you scraped the soggy Beet Batter (not one bit crispy) off the fish it was nice and fresh. Worth a visit for cocktails but give it a miss for food. We were also sitting at door so it was freezing every time someone came in or went out for a cigarette, not a nice experience and though we have recommended the venue a number of times and have been often we won’t be back in a hurry.

    The Spiritualist AberdeenResponded on April 21, 2022Hi BellaMoor, did you speak to any members of the team regarding this issue on the night? Please let us know on tsamanagement@signatureubs.co,uk and we can go from there. Many thanks.
