Visited for Sunday Lunch and was surprised it was not too busy. Been here many times and always busy. The roast beef dinners were excellent. Lots of roast beef and big helpings. Beautifully cooked and service was just great. Will definitely be back when next in Dundee!

This is a great bar for the centre of town, good mix of clientele and food. Always has a good atmosphere and some not too bad wines.

I have visited this bar on many occasions whilst in Dundee but it is always so busy, it is difficult to get a table to eat. Luckily on our latest visit we got the last table available in the lovely dining area just to the left of the entrance. My husband had a burger and I had a club sandwich.... More

Fantastic pub with character. Depicting the local trades with ornate stained glass windows and epic wood panelling and decor. A huge choice of beers on tap and the best pint of heavy going. Living down south I so miss that!! Bar staff are attentive and friendly and the food is good fare at a good price. Not to be missed.

Suppose this is Dundee's best town centre pub, it's very busy, tables at a premium, clientele of all ages, quite noisy, good service but too big off a place to be friendly. Sky TV on, so all football shown. Yes we will return but not sure it's a great couples pub.
