Had lunch today at the Ship Inn, Broughty Ferry. We ate upstairs in the restaurant. The fish pie was sublime- full of salmon, haddock and tiger prawns. Delicious! My dad had the steak pie which he said was great. The veg was plentiful, and the home-made chips, fresh and tasty. Great value. The service was excellent. And with a view over the river to Fife, what more could you want?

Having been turned away from our first choice because it was "after 8", we found our way to The Ship. Friendly welcome, a bit of banter, grand guest ales and then up the stairs. Characterful setting, right on the beach. Get rid of the street light and it would be perfect. We shared prawn filo rolls, smoked fish ramekin and haggis fritter starters - all exemplars. While my colleagues went for the sea bass - which was pronounced "fantastic", I had the scallops and Stornoway black pudding - a superlative combination. Unfortunately, there was no room for dessert - we shall have to come again.
Coupled with a friendly and restrained service, this was a great evening. Highly recommended.

We visited this restaurant for the first time today, Sunday, and had a very enjoyable lunch, choosing from a varied menu that included both meat and fish dishes. One of our party chose the "half fish-half scampi" which was a whole fish in batter and around six pieces of scampi, with chips and a choice of salad or peas, and with homemade tartare sauce, There was fresh trout, very nicely cooked and presented, and smoked haddock and prawns with spinach in a light sauce, also nicely cooked and presented for the others in our party of three. We each had different sweets and they were most enjoyable. The service was friendly and efficient and this first floor restaurant was bright and comfortable, with lovely views over the water. A very nice place to visit, and we will certainly go back again.

sat outside at the pavement tables last week and had a brilliant pot of fresh Scottish mussels accompanied with lovely chunky chips, could not fault the service, food or the reasonable price. If it's seafood you are after the Ship is the "plaice " to visit, fresh crab, Arbroath smokies, langoustines and much more on offer. not only that but the latest tv series of bob servant was being filmed on the pier that day and we had a grandstand view of the proceedings as well as seeing the stars when they came in to use the ship's facilities.
