This is such a friendly place. It was like going to someones house.
My mother and myself enjoyed our meal which was high quality at a very reasonable price.
You are better to reserve a table as it is so popular.
All regulars are welcomed by name.
This is in broughty ferry just past Dundee, which is a lovely place to go.
Enjoy xx

Went into this bar today was a lovely experience. The barman lovely smile and very pleasant, food served by very pleasant waitresses. Food was fab. The thing that made it really special was our dog Lucy was made very welcome, was given bowl of water and biscuits. More pubs could learn a lot from this Bar being dog friendly. Well done.

We were given a gift voucher for this place. A Christmas present from a friend.
Good food but the breaded haddock though excellent and delicious was a bit on the small side! That was a disappointment for a guy with a 'healthy' appetite. I'm sure they could do much better. Everything else passed muster. Tearlach and Catriona.
