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

Having looked at a few previous reviews for this establishment I can safely say that the service my friends and I were subject to on our recent visit was not a one off. The blonde elderly barmaid was nothing short of vile. She insulted us, questioned why we were even there as opposed to the Students Union (most of the... More

Great food a small tip would be to purchase a loyalty card before you order your food then present it for a 10% discount when you pay the bill. The food is freshly cooked with large portions

We always like McDaniels for a pub lunch when in the town and our most recent visit made for a welcome half time break while out Xmas shopping. The food was decent. Nice big portions all piping hot on arrival at the table. However, despite not appearing to be all that busy it took well over half an hour before... More

Visited here for lunch many times, there is always a waiting time due to the food being cooked to order but is always worth the wait never had a bad meal. Keep up the good work will be back.

My husband and I visited here one day. The staff were ignorant and the service was poor. This used to be a great place to hang out but now it seems to lack in atmosphere. I won't hurry back.
