He added: “It was very surreal being rushed to hospital and my mind did start to wonder in case things took a nasty turn.
“However, I do feel lucky that I only have mild symptoms and that I haven’t had any breathing difficulties.”
Phil Adams, who owns the bar, said he was “absolutely devastated” by the cluster.
He added: “We’ve put a lot of measures in place and we’ve worked very hard to ensure all our staff and customers are safe.
“This is a very trying time, not just for me but for everyone involved with the business.”
A spokesman for NHS Grampian confirmed that the pub had “a series of controls” in place with regard to distancing and enhanced hygiene, and had been collecting customer contact details.
He added: “Advice was provided on how these controls could be improved further and this advice has been taken on board with enhanced controls being implemented immediately. The business has co-operated fully with the investigation.”
