“Christmas Day Pint.”
Review of The Speedwell Bar

The Speedwell Bar
Ranked #3 of 29 Nightlife in Dundee
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 December 2017

Just called in for a quick Christmas Day pint on our way to lunch. Nothings changed from my last visit, which is good. I live 200 miles away but always try to get here whenever I'm in town. The staff are always friendly, the lager is good and it's a proper pub. No carpets, not a lot of padding on the seats, just loads of friends having a good time. Get in for a pint.

Quite simply, everything you could want in a pub. Incredible whisky collection, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and even old fashioned porcelain toilets. Never had a bad experience and would highly recommend a drink there.

Love this pub. I've been visiting Dundee for about 45 years and this pub has never changed. Dark wood panels everywhere. Great looking mirrored bar. I've never known it to be quiet. Always buzzing, shoulder to shoulder, hardly ever a seat to be had [and there's not a lot of padding on them], but never much of a cross word. The Tennets lager has always been good and not too expensive. The staff are friendly and smart and get to you as soon as they can. Even the local MP was in.
