Cheers Bar: Broad Street, Fraserburgh
SATURDAY afternoons when the sun’s beating down are perfect for a nice pub lunch.
The clack of pool balls, the televised murmur of a football crowd and the babble of buddies are vital ingredients in enjoying the warm weather.
So it was a treat to find that Cheers Bar in Fraserburgh had all of this – as well as a conservatory-style eating area so you’re not robbed of the vital hours of daylight while you eat.
The Broad Street pub, which also has a beer garden, has a family-friendly atmosphere. The pleasant and patient bar staff quickly and efficiently took down my order.
And within minutes I was served with a boiling bowl of Scotch broth (£2.65). The fact that Ross County had just fired a second goal past Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final made the soup taste all the better.
My pal opted for the chicken fillets (£5.70) for his main course. Cooked in delicious batter the tender chunks were served with a tasty portion of chips.
I had chosen the cheese quarter-pounder burger and fries (£4.60) , which hit the spot.
My sweet-toothed mate chose the chocolate fudge cake (£2.80) for his pudding – which looked a delight.
Our bellies full, we headed back into the sun fit for some more Saturday fun. Cheers.
