Great bar lunch if you can get a table

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.... read 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.

I went to the Trades House Bar for a beer one evening as I had an hour to kill while I was waiting for a train. I'm really glad I chose this bar! One reason for choosing it was of course the fact that the location couldn't possibly be any better, it's right at the center of the city. Like... More

Stopped in for lunch whilst on a shopping trip. WOW what a great place to have lunch and a well earned drink! Staff were fantastic and the food was both excellent in terms of quantity and quality. This place is most definitely worth a visit if you are in Dundee City centre.
