We always liked the fact you get a choice of two soups, this week it was down to only one. In summer, understandable, but not yet and nothing additional to replace it. Also, at the same time, suddenly no "Specials", kind of makes it boring if you go here a lot. No idea why the changes, don't really see the... More

One of the best bars in Dundee. Always busy, great selection of draught beers, service good and always a great place to chill out, watch the telly, chat with mates or grab some great food.

We go here quite a bit for snacks, lunch or just a drink and I went here with my daughter for lunch. I ordered the chicken strips starter (it comes with salad & dip) and my daughter ordered mac & cheese with bread & butter... it was a new waitress....and she took ages for everything - in fact the barman...

Great find, local pub feel with friendly atmosphere. Many screens for football if you like that kind of thing.

Stopped off for a few drinks mid week and decided to have supper too. Other half had steak pie and I had the chicken curry. Both were tasty, and good portion size, but my only gripe was that the plates were cold. Staff were friendly, food came quickly and other half said that his John Smith pint was a excellent... More

Stopped by for a couple of drinks, got quite a frosty reception from 2 regulars. Got the impression we weren't welcome for sitting in their spot. We would have moved if it had been requested. Overall a nice looking boozer with good range of beers and lagers plus clean bogs , just a shame about the regulars

Very traditional boozer, with lovely interior and exterior with loads of character. Gets busy for footie/sport. An impressive choice of beers - got to be at least 20+ different beers on tap. Definitely a more mature drinking crowd (over 25). Had fish and chips early evening, didn't think much of the chips but the fish was absolutely stunning, even more... More
