Popped in here for a quick drink and bite and had a bar meal which was very good, hot and the service was great too. Will definitely be eating here again. They have a restaurant upstairs and we asked and were told the menu is slightly different but if it's the same chef then you'd have no issues.

Went here with a group of workmates after a long trip at sea and had a great night. Friendly staff,good beer selection and bar nibbles filled a hole or two. Definitely return when again in the area. Only downside was there was 5 dogs in the pub at the same time and one of our colleagues was allergic so don't... More

Went here for a family night out. We all ordered different meals, steak pie, steak, nut roast, vegetable lasagne and burger. All the food we had was excellent, freshly cooked and beautifully presented. We liked that there was a large bowl of vegetables and chips to be shared on the table. The portion sizes were huge. Overall, a lovely meal... More

We had a large family gathering for a special occasion. Most meals were very good. Special mention for the steak pie which was excellent, with large tasty chunks of steak although the pastry was a bit darker, drier and crisper than I've seen at other places. The vegetables were perfect. A mix of seasonal vegetables in a bowl to be... More

Having read your review I would like to make it clear that all our meat and poultry is supplied fresh from a local high quality butcher and we never serve chicken that has been frozen, never mind suffering from freezer burn, incidentally I have run The Ship for 15 years and certainly could not tell the difference in taste between...

Lovely friendly pub with great views over the River Tay. Food was delicious with attentive service. A hidden gem and well worth a visit. Booking is usually essential as it seems to be very popular and was full on the night we went. Just look out for the fact that children have to be gone by 8pm. Would definitely recommend... More

This wee restaurant came recommended from a friend of my daughter who stays in Hamilton , but used to stay in Broughty Ferry. Food is simply fantastic. My wife had the fish pie which was crammed with fish and prawns, I had the Haddock which was very moist and tasty. But the star of the meal was the starter, we... More
