My son and I had a nice bar lunch here recently and was impressed at the quality fare on offer at a very reasonable price. We both had the steak pie which was both tasty and plentiful and highly recommended. For the beer man they also do a nice pint of 80 shilling which I also enjoyed. The desserts finished... More

A long established bar which always has a friendly atmosphere. Beers are always good and they do a lovely bottle of prosecco for £9. Well worth a visit.

Long established pub in Dundee in a great location but it needs a makeover and a cheerful bar man! They do bar food but I wouldn't want to eat there unless it had a good scrub... sorry.

Met two friends here on a Saturday afternoon, before eating elsewhere, friendly welcome from staff, sat in the comfy sofas at the window, not too busy but a good atmosphere in the place, worth a visit

Would not recommend this place at all unless you like staff with the customer service of a plank..... unfriendly and unwelcoming and the food well I'd have rather paid the £7.50 I paid for the voucher for something out of pets at home as it was only fit for a dog... the burger was Gressy and on a Moldy roll...

A big bar with plenty of seating that allows bigger bands to play there. I like live music and have never been disappointed with the bands playing here. Good selection of beer as well.
