Classy restaurant in a great location

Four of us visited for dinner. Service was excellent. Had two starters. Whitebait, which were not as crisp as they should have been & black pudding with chorizo & new potatoes, which was deemed to be on the small side. The two steak pies were excellent with a generous amount of beef. The sirloin... read more

I was in Broughty Ferry for the day and chose this place because of its position down by the shore. I decided on staying in the Bar itself, and with a nice pint of real ale (of which there were several to choose from) had a breaded haddock, chips and salad. All was well prepared and presented - though condiments... More

If you are looking for the perfect pub lunch, The Ship is the place to go. You have the option of the restaurant up the stairs or the pub atmosphere around the bar downstairs. Staff are friendly, and the food is cooked to perfection. The price is ver reasonable. I have been going there since I was a kid, and... More

If you like traditional seaside pubs and pub food I highly recommend this. We had fish and chips, mussels and cullen skink - excellent quality and value. Nice beer too. The staff were lovely and the view on a sunny day was great.

6 of us came for my wife's birthday celebration. Everything was excellent: food; service and beer and wine selection. Great views down the river are an added bonus. Would definitely come back here

We have lived in the area for18 years and have always said we would go to The Ship but never managed it. It was our loss. We had a very nice meal on Saturday evening only blighted by a party of middle aged yuppies squealing like school kids. Everyone else had to shout to be heard and the waitress could... More
