The pub's hygiene is zero as at the main door there are cigarettes every where, not the best welcome.

Thought the two fish and chips deal for £10.00 was great value for money and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would certainly visit again.

Used a Groupon voucher for a fish supper deal and was not disappointed. Fish was fresh and well presented and served by a very pleasant waitress. Only draw back is the decor and requires updating.

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.
