Description: A terrific earthy little bar, one that shows the time and care spent making it warm, cosy and unpretentious and providing a favourite tipple for everybody. The most delicious pub grub served all day - exactly what you feel like with your dram or pint. Many good wines on offer, posh coffees too. Live music, private parties, real fires.

“Great atmosphere, great burgers....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled upon Drouthy's whilst walking down the Perth Road. It looks more like a bar than restaurant as there was no obvious menu on the outside. We almost walked past but I popped my head in the door and saw the menu on a big black board. The decor is rustic with a lot of charm and the staff very friendly. We ordered two gourmet burgers. They were fantastic and came with skinny fries which were lovely. I thoroughly recommend this for lunch or just a wee drink.

“Change it back!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Six months ago Drouthys burgers were the best me and my wife have ever had, we lived in America for a few years and sampled many burgers. Unfortunately we came in last night and Drouthys have changed the rolls (to sour dough stodgy buns) and the fries (to skinny), at least they still have the amazing homemade burger. Its a real shame cause the place is great, the staff are great and the drinks are the best. Please Drouthys change it back!!!

“Best in Dundee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I've been coming to Drouthys for years and can't speak highly enough of it. It is one of the most relaxing spots in the city after a long day and as an ale enthusiast i'm a big fan of their selection. The staff are always incredibly friendly and you're made to feel comfortable whether you are just in for a drink with a friend, or dinner as a group. The menu is homemade pub food and i've never had a disappointing meal despite trying a high percentage of what they offer. Paying about £7/8 for a main but for that money you get both quantity and quality. The drinks aren't the cheapest but the extra money is worth the atmosphere and the lack of £1 shots acts as a nice barrier to entry for big groups of students, despite it's perth road location.

“the best burgers in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

I come here regularly. It's a great place to meet friends, have a drink or dinner. The burgers are just superb - made with good quality meat. I recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.
