This a large, atmospheric city pub. I called in on a Tuesday evening and had a pint of Bitter & Twisted and very nice it was too. The pub was quiet (as everywhere else was) but it was pleasant to have a seat and a drink. The staff all seemed fine and I would recommend it if you happen to... read more

First time in Dundee. Had been warned about going into pubs there. Very pleasantly surprised by this place. Mainly middle aged couples having a post work drink on Friday evening. Choice of beers not great, only one or two beers but about 12 lagers!

The Trades House is a classically ornate and fabulous bar. This is a fantastic looking pub with lots of attractive wood providing an impressive main bar area as well as smaller snugs. Decorative windows, rich leather upholstery and brass light fittings lend an ageless, classic air to the place and this really is a top class drinking establishment. While a... More

Beautiful well-kept pub in the centre. Worth a visit just for a look! Prices a little dearer but not by much.
