Very friendly and attentive staff, cheap prices and a good array of spirits and beers. What's not to like so close to the station?

The Phoenix is deservedly a Dundee institution. Great decor that reminds me of brown cafes in the Netherlands. Superb bar staff. Great drinks selection and tremendous pub food at good prices.

A great 'old man's' pub with no airs or graces. Get a pizza and pint of chips and enjoy the atmosphere!

An old school pub, with loads of character, and staff that makes you feel right at home even if it's your first visit to Dundee. Just enough grit to make it real, and extra helpings of local flavor. I'm definitely going back!

I have been going to this pub for over 25 years, always busy, bar staff always friendly and knowledgeable. Great selection of drinks and they sell what people want rather than trying to be dictatoresque in their beers! Best pub in Dundee.
