Couples in for drinks on Saturday night, very busy pub with good atmosphere. Service very quick and drinks selection as always very good. Always a smart choice to stop off here when on Perth Road.

Traditional Scottish pub....and one of the few in Dundee serving cask beer. The real reason to go. The second reason is bar food. The 'speciality' is chilli. And good it is! Beefy and spicy. Have a pint, chilli and chips and only pay £12.

Food was fine. We ordered Nachos and a Burger which we both enjoyed. The plate the burger was served on was far too small, struggled to eat with everything else it was served with. Thought it wasn't the best value for what we got.

I think you either love the Pheonix or you hate it. It varies for me depending on mood I think. Bar staff are pleasant but busy, beer is averagely priced for Dundee (not a great selection on tap) and they don't take card. Pub itself...More

This pub has been around for a long time, for me it's a meeting place, 1 pint, then move on. It fit's the bill.
