Best fish and chips

We visited Broughty Ferry to have fish and chips on the sea front but the fish and chip shops were closed so we visited the Ship Inn . So glad we did. The fish was fantastic . So fresh and skinned and in the lightest batter. Lovely . The staff were friendly and the location was great . Recommend .

Had a beautiful meal in The Ship Inn. Staff very nice and attentive. We had booked a window seat with astounding views across the Tay. Very reasonable prices for food and drinks.

We were recommended this restaurant by a local and we weren't disappointed. All four main courses we ordered were fabulous - steak and ale pie, fish pie, salmon and pork belly. The two puddings we shared (meringue nest with strawberries and orange/chocolate cheesecake) were delicious. The restaurant offers a view over the beach and the staff were charming and efficient....

We came as two couples for drinks and dinner. The pub was bristling in Sat eve. Good service and great local beer to start the evening. When our table was ready (reservations needed) we went upstairs. Hag of the table had steak pie and the other half fish. Both cooked and seasoned perfectly. Come hungry. Leave full and satisfied.

Not knowing the area as well as I should despite most of my family living in Dundee. I stumbled across looking for somewhere good to eat that wasn't just fast-food or a trendy wine bar; and I was glad I did. Me and my girlfriend both had fish (though memory escapes me what type) but for the relatively cheap price... More

We arranged a late lunch, booking the window table, for a special celebration. The table was waiting for us when we arrived and we had a great meal and a fabulous view of "The Silvery Tay".

Evening meal with friends to celebrate a birthday. Goo varied menu, friendly staff who were happy to join in a little banter and excellent food. No complaints from any of our party except that the portions were too generous to be able to finish them!
