We visited as a party of 4 on Saturday night. Staff very friendly, food was lovely, I had smoked haddock which was delicious although accompanying vegetables were slightly disappointing. Very reasonably priced. Only thing that let it down was where we were sitting. Right at back of restaurant, next to the till and wine fridge, by kitchen door. Felt busy... More

Booked an early dinner because we were eating with our 10 year old. Warm welcome from lovely waiting staff. We were the only diners for the first half hour but the restaurant soon began to fill. Husband was delighted with the cask ales on offer and opted for Timothy Taylor Landlord. Menu was varied. Food was faultless, plentiful and very... More

We had a table at the window looking out on The Firth of Tay , I enjoyed one of the best fish and chips I have had in a long time and at very reasonable prices, deserves the full five stars I have given

Good food, great service and value for money. The Ship is a friendly, homely unpretentious restaurant serving traditional food without ripping you off. It's a credit to Broughty Ferry. Keep up the good work folks :-)

The family and I visited here after reading some of the good reviews and I'm glad because we all enjoyed our meals. It was just pub food that had been presented well but being sat upstairs was nice because we had a view of the water. The customer service was polite and friendly and it is child friendly. Overall it... More

Had lunch here today and the food was excellent with service to match. The atmosphere is good and you can have an excellent view over the River Tay towards Fife (if you get the right table)

Meal was (as always) exactly what you want from a pub lunch. I had a baguette and my partner had the vegetarian bhaji burger and both were great. We added a side portion of the duck spring rolls and a couple of pints to complete our lunch. Nice and comfy pub with a super friendly waitress and great views across... More
