Had a lovely spot of lunch at Tickety Boos today. Haddock and Chips. Perfect. Couple of pints of well served Guinness, staff were charming, cheery, and actually seem happy at their work, which is a refreshing change these days. Other plates of food looked equally delicious. Great wee spot in Dundee City Centre. Great stuff. I'll be back, defo.

Nipped in for a quick pint. Got it and as it had a 3/4 inch head on it I asked for it to be topped up. The barmaids response was " don't you want a head on it " with a look that said are you a weirdo. I pointed out the amount of foam and she then topped it... More

I'll give mention to Nikki/Nicky. We weren't sure whether to eat. Our son was won round. He had macaroni cheese, we (2 adults) split the steak pie portion in 2 and it was still filling! Eating out is always more enjoyable when you feel welcome and Nikki couldn't have been more helpful to us and the customers around us. Quick... More

We were in Dundee for a short break, came across this bar, spotted the trip advisor sticker on the door, went in and were immediately greeted by a member of staff who was friendly and informative. We both had burgers for lunch, mine was the half pound beef burger, with haggis and chilli, they will warn you about the chilli,... More

I ordered their "homemade" steak pie. It was a tasteless gravy with a piece of premade puffed pastry on top - cooked in the microwave. Fries on the side along with frozen vegetables cooked also cooked microwave. I can without a doubt say that this is the worst meal that I've ever paid for. So for dining: Cannot recommend. For...

Came here for lunch on a busy Saturday. Managed to be seated down stairs with good view of the TVs to watch football. Staff were really lovely and the food was classic pub food but good value.

Went to Tickety Boo's today for a bar lunch with my daughter and my mum. We had a main course each and chose haddock and chips, chicken goujons and chips, chilli con carne with rice and chips. The portions were huge and the presentation was great. All 3 meals were delicious and came with a lovely salad, dips and coleslaw... More

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 from Best Bar None, Cask Marque and The British Institute of Innkeeping. Tickety Boo’s has a great selection of drinks from a large range of Scotland’s favourite whiskies to rum, cocktails (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), world beers and award winning draught beer. For those of you who are not in the mood for an alcoholic drink why not enjoy a home cooked meal, coffee or some of our great entertainment. The Staff are happy, friendly and fun and are always quick to serve. Come in and listen to some great live music, compete in our quiz, play a friendly game of poker or watch live sport.
