Had lunch here today and the food was excellent with service to match. The atmosphere is good and you can have an excellent view over the River Tay towards Fife (if you get the right table)

Meal was (as always) exactly what you want from a pub lunch. I had a baguette and my partner had the vegetarian bhaji burger and both were great. We added a side portion of the duck spring rolls and a couple of pints to complete our lunch. Nice and comfy pub with a super friendly waitress and great views across... More

Visited here for the first time with friends last night and had a lovely time! Very relaxed atmosphere, our table was at the window which would be lovely on a summer's night, great views of the Tay. Menu is varied, plenty of choice and something for everyone. I had the goats cheese and onion tart to start and it was... More

We had a great meal here in Broughty Ferry, recommended by our Airbnb host as we were staying just around the corner (I recommend making a reservation as it's a small dining room upstairs). Loved the decor, the views over the water and the simple Scottish food. were all stand-outs. The Arbroath Smokie & Whisky pate, Black Pudding with Chorizo... More

Not been for a while. Had supper with a friend and it did not disappoint. The surroundings are great and the view, even on a dark evening, is good. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Started with Cullen Skink. Fortunately only a small bowl as it is filling but really, really good. Chicken with Stornoway Black Pudding in a very tasty... More

We were up in Dundee for the theatre and decided to drive up earlier and have a meal,so glad we chose here. It's a cracking location and the restaurant is beautifully decorated with a lovely ambience and a fantastic view. We'd planned on having a main and dessert but after spotting Cullen Skink amongst the starters we went for the... More

I have booked The Ship Inn on numerous occasions now for business dinners for the management team I support and it is such a big hit. We have VIP visitors from across the globe and they always comment on the food, service and location of the restaurant. Even for a farewell dinner a few weeks ago where we attended with... More
