This wee restaurant came recommended from a friend of my daughter who stays in Hamilton , but used to stay in Broughty Ferry. Food is simply fantastic. My wife had the fish pie which was crammed with fish and prawns, I had the Haddock which was very moist and tasty. But the star of the meal was the starter, we... More

Been here a few times and the food is always good. Big portions so make sure you are really hungry if you opt for a starter, my haggis bon bons were delish, followed by a tasty pheasant and bacon pie with really great pastry and then gingerbread cheesecake, surprisingly light in texture and very tasty. Friendly staff, a bit more... More

Visited here for evening meal. Had pheasant and bacon pie which was very tasty! Followed by chocolate cake with salted caramel and ice cream which was delicious! Would recommend but best to book as was very busy! Staff attentive and friendly.

To be honest I come here for the view which on a day like today is absolutely stunning. This is a pub with a dedicated restaurant area upstairs, but you can eat downstairs if you wish. Upstairs has a large window that looks out over the mouth of the river Tay. On a clear day you see across to Tayport... More

We stopped off when travelling from Glasgow to Aberdeen to lunch in this pub/ restaurant, having seen it mentioned in Scotland the Best,and it certainly lived up to the expectations created by that read. We dined in the restaurant and were welcomed and served in a friendly and unassuming way - we had not booked and I think we're lucky... More
