The food in this bar is first class for pub grub, reasonably priced and presented really well. One of the best bars in Dundee for meals.

Chilli cheese burger, curly fries. Beer beer beer. All good and a must visit pub. Weird that you have to keep going up to pay for drinks - rather just pay everything at the end...

We love this pub. The real ale is very well kept and the range of whisky is good. There’s always plenty of staff on and it’s always busy and buzzing.
The decor is great and because there is a turnover over of customers at the weekend, you will get a seat in time. We think it’s the best pub in Dundee.

I visit Dundee quite often and have been drinking here on and off for 45 years. It's never quiet, not that cheap and only rarely can you get a seat. It's got old dark panels and little cubby holes and big mirrors on the back wall. 45 years ago the place was rough as flip, but so were most of the pubs in Dundee. It did nice pies, but that was it. It was more open so more drinkers could get in. Then it went all Ikea and it was horrible. No character at all. So we didn't go much. After a while it went back to what it is now. Apparently an old style bar was found somewhere, fitted in almost as well as the original, so we still go. So should you.

Visited the Phoenix for lunch and a few pints. busy bar with mix of all ages. Place is clean and has plenty of wee tables and seats. It’s a bit expensive for drink but it’s a decent lager imo. Can be full of students but all good
