Description: Tickety Boo’s is a traditional bar that offers a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. It boasts a horseshoe-shaped bar and original stained glass windows, but there is nothing traditional about its modern standards. This top performing bar has won awards from Best Bar None, Cask Marque and The British Institute of Innkeeping. Tickety Boo’s has a great selection of drinks from a large range of Scotland’s favourite whiskies to rum, cocktails (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), world beers and award winning draught beer. For those of you who are not in the mood for an alcoholic drink why not enjoy a home cooked meal, coffee or some of our great entertainment. The Staff are happy, friendly and fun and are always quick to serve. Come in and listen to some great live music, compete in our quiz, play a friendly game of poker or watch live sport.

“One of the best pubs in Dundee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

I wouldn't class myself as a regular visitor to Tickety Boo's but when you go in you are certainly treated that way. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is always welcoming.

The food has always been good when I've had a meal there and they have a large selection of drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Highly recommended.

“Warm, friendly pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Been to the vast majority of pubs in the city centre and I enjoyed Ticketys greatly. Food is reasonably priced and always very tasty. I would recommend this pub to those looking for a homely pub with a great atmosphere and even better service!

“Spherical Haggis Offering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

In Spain they eat criadillas or bulls testicles but in Tickety Boos they have their very own version.
I can now reveal that dedicated Gus Welsh - the premises manager - gets up at 3 a.m. every morning and Haggis hunts on the Dundee Law. As you all know Haggis are rare creatures with three legs which run anti clockwise round hills in season which is every day so far north. Gus charges round the hill in a clockwise direction wielding a large net into which he often scoops upwards of 300 haggis. He then harvests their whatd'youmcallems [no that is a trade secret and I am not permitted to reveal how this is done] and releases the creatures back into the semi rural environment of the Law. He runs at full tilt back to Tickety Boos and after preparing his special batter prepares what he calls Haggis Balls for your delight. And boy are they good when served with sweet chilli sauce?

Interestingly Haggis whatd'youmcallems sits regenerate overnight so fortunately there is neither a shortage of baby Haggi nor Haggis whatd'youmcallems for the table.

In addition Tickety Boos is a fab pub with a superb drinks and food offering. Service is fantastic and i love going there.

GusWelsh, Manager at Tickety Boo's, responded to this review, July 25, 2013
Thanks for noticing the effort we go to so that you can enjoy very fresh “Haggis Balls”. At Tickety Boo’s we strive to go that extra mile (sometimes around the Law) to bring you a great product range in respect to food and drinks. We source lots of our products locally. I would like to take this opportunity to again point out that our cultivating methods to obtain the haggis “what’youmcallems” is completely painless and causes no lasting harm to the haggis or the haggis population.

Thank you very much for your fabulous review its great hearing from our regulars.
