The Royal Arch Bar & Bistro

The Royal Arch Tavern & Bistro still forms Broughty Ferry's hub - since 1840. Originally Broughty's Railway Tavern, the hostelry's name changed in 1860 to mark the demolition of the ancient Royal Arch Lodge.The Tavern is blessed with its hand-carved solid

Pleasant looking pub in the middle of Broughty Ferry with some interesting external stained glass windows. It also benefits from some external tables that get the benefit of the afternoon sun and we utilised one of these whilst killing a bit of time before catching the bus back to Dundee.Obviously cannot pass judgement on the food here as we did not eat, but a decent pint of 71 Brewing Left Coast and friendly service levels from the barman made this a good stop.Hello Steve_of_N21, thanks for coming into The Royal Arch. A Londoner praising a Pub, is praise indeed because London Pubs are acclaimed globally! It’s great to read that you had a nice experience here, enjoying good cask beer and company of friendly people.

The Old Anchor Inn

Reviewed By PhilC1961

Once again, The Anchor delivers. Now, although I wouldn't class myself as a regular here, it is a place we make a point of visiting when in Broughty Ferry, last night we were there for my wife's birthday treat. The menu is extensive with something for all tastes, don't hesitate to ask what the 'special' is either as you might get a nice surprise. My wife loves the lasagne here so that was her choice, she told me it was delicious, and it looked just that. I opted for the pepper-steak-melt which was thoroughly outstanding. The portions are very generous with everything cooked to perfection and you generally don't wait much longer than 15 minutes depending on your choice, curries take a bit longer as they are made to order.The service is outstanding, warm and welcoming. The pub is quite compact, thus generating it's own vibrant atmosphere, there is always a feel-good factor when you are there. On nice days like we've had recently you can opt to sit outside (if you are lucky enough to get a table) where the sun will shine on you throughout the afternoon and into the early evening.If you plan a visit for food then you are advised to book a table as the popularity of the food usually means it is fully booked. However, it is possible to get a table on a walk-in but my advice would be to book in advance.The food really is fabulous, as I say in my heading, gourmet quality at good prices, you will pay a lot more elsewhere for food of sub-standard quality to this. So, don't miss out, get yourself to 'the ferry' and get a table booked, you won't be disappointed, I never have been.

Tickety Boo's

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

Reviewed By johnhouston2

Although Tickety Boo’s is one of the best-known pubs in the town, it hasn’t turned into one of those trendy, nondescript modern bars. This is a smart, traditional, small bar with good service, decent beer and a relaxed atmosphere.It’s certainly one of the best in town.

The Ship Inn & Waterfront Restaurant

Reviewed By Macquarrieclan

We recently stopped off at Broughty Ferry with our dog and were looking for somewhere that was 'dog friendly' - did a quick google search and came up with The Ship Inn - not only were we able to take the dog into the lounge and sit down for a proper meal, the food was absolutely excellent and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Can certainly recommend The Ship Inn.Very pleased that you enjoyed your meal and visit to the Ship, however to avoid any misunderstandings I would point out to readers of this review that dogs are only allowed into the bar and not the upstairs restaurant, regards Steve

Milton gets it right again. From super friendly well trained staff to a great atmosphere it's always a pleasure to eat here. We went for Sunday dinner and the roasts are amazing. Delicious fresh food and generous portions. We also had desserts which again are home made and very tasty. Definitely recommend and well done to all staff

Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Simpson’s yesterday morning. The owner Claire was so friendly and gave us such a lovely personal service. The smoothies were so good- super healthy and fresh; and each of us really enjoyed our food. I had the beetroot hummus with avocado and crumbled goats cheese on sourdough; my husband scrambled eggs with halloumi; and the boys both had the ‘Dundee Stack’ which was black pudding with haggis and bacon or sausage with a perfectly poached egg on top. Best coffee since we arrived in Scotland too. All round a top quality breakfast with fantastic service.

Got a warm friendly welcome and indeed the staff were excellent throughout.Limited menu but what we ordered was cooked or prepared and presented beautifully.Good choice of wines - many by the glass.Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and all felt it was good value for money.Book ahead- it is a small restaurant.£10 each way for taxi from centre of Dundee.Some good bars nearby to round off your evening.

The Newport Restaurant with Rooms

Reviewed By ian f

Nice surroundings with beautiful views over the Tay. Staff were welcoming and attentive. We had the 5 course tasting menu and the first 2 courses were excellent.Beautifully presented and full of flavour. Thereafter the standard deteriorated with wish course being rather tasteless and minute in size. The pork main was for us over cooked and again on the small size. Sweet was OK. On the whole disappointing for the standard of food we were expecting, and certainly not value for money. We would not return
