Came here with the family, food was fantastic. We had steak pie, macaroni and chilli burger, all fab. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Place looks a bit old but clean. Food and drinks reasonably priced. Would def return.

Long established pub in Dundee in a great location but it needs a makeover and a cheerful bar man! They do bar food but I wouldn't want to eat there unless it had a good scrub... sorry.

Met two friends here on a Saturday afternoon, before eating elsewhere, friendly welcome from staff, sat in the comfy sofas at the window, not too busy but a good atmosphere in the place, worth a visit

Would not recommend this place at all unless you like staff with the customer service of a plank..... unfriendly and unwelcoming and the food well I'd have rather paid the £7.50 I paid for the voucher for something out of pets at home as it was only fit for a dog... the burger was Gressy and on a Moldy roll...

A big bar with plenty of seating that allows bigger bands to play there. I like live music and have never been disappointed with the bands playing here. Good selection of beer as well.
