The best steak pie in Dundee plus fish and chips. Lovely and fresh with that home cooked feeling. Great to hang out for just a drink. Live local bands on most Friday and Saturday evenings great atmosphere. Great pub with great food and staff.

I went there with my wife, with a Groupon, which offered fish and chips for 2 for £7.50. Ordered a drink, then did not have to wait long for fish and chips, large fresh breaded haddock (not your frozen variety) served with mushy peas, chips and tartare sauce, the chef even makes her own breadcrumbs and coats the fish in...

I bought a Groupon voucher for a meal at this pub, the food was excellent and the service very good, so I decided another visit was in order. The second visit was just as good as the first.

Purchased a Groupon voucher for a meal at this pub to use while visiting Dundee for the weekend and was not disappointed. Was quite busy but we were served almost immediately. Portions were a good size and very tasty. Excellent service from the bar staff. Would definitely eat here again.

We visited whilst in Dundee to renew my acquaintance with this pub which used to be a busy vibrant city centre spot. A lot has changed and it looks distinctly down at heel and needs a good clean up and make over.

I attended a works' night out on Saturday and felt the attitude of a male manager was extremely dis respective to a female member of staff, he appeared to be off duty yet persisted to talk to the young girl very harshly in front of the whole bar on a busy Saturday night. As a manager myself, I respect if... More

I have eaten here twice - once and Christmas for a lunch and once at the weekend for a tea after work. This review is mainly based upon my most recent trip with Christmas elements as the experiences were both pretty much exactly the same. We had pre-ordered food to be served at 6.30pm as we were having a birthday... More

Ate here for the first time with a groupon voucher. I wasn't expecting much, but we were very surprised at the quality of the food. I had fish which was so fresh and tasty. My husband had the steak pie which was plentiful, and very tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. All in a all a very enjoyable meal, and... More
