Wow, you won't leave here hungry! Portion sizes are generous, and the food is very well cooked and presented. More pub food than fine dining, but the food is still excellent. Staff are very pleasant, and it's good value for money.

As a golfing group we booked an evening meal at the ship inn. The outside is rather old looking blending into the surrounding area and as you walk through the doors it's like back in time with the old style bar. It has a fantastic...More

Lunch here in the Bar at the weekend. Friendly and welcoming Waitress. Lovely food, not sure about the whole Menu but ours was a step up from other Pub Food. Nicely sized (for us) smaller portions, well presented. Will definitely return and would recommend to...More

Sorry not sure, there are plenty around there, some within easy walk. I can recommend the sister hotel of the Invercarse, Dundee. Just can't remember it's name, but it is in Broughty Ferry
