Met a friend for lunch. She is a bit fussy so checked out the menu online first and didn't have to worry as they have a huge variety. Whether you're after steak pie, baked potato or a panini they seem to offer everything. Staff are very friendly and efficient though I think we came in at the wrong time as... More

Great wee place for a drink, but should have tried the food. Barman was very knowledgeable about gin and vodka and made excellent suggestions. Visited afternoon and evening. Good atmosphere, busy but plenty of room and even managed a seat.

Visited early evening for two consecutive days A busy local pub in the centre of Dundee with an interesting central bar and upstairs seating Lots of locals plus a few others TV's showing sky sports Friendly staff Somewhat let down by having no Cask beers which has reduced my overall rating

Food and drink are excellent but the atmosphere and bar staff are second to none. Selection of whisky, vodka him and rum are outstanding especially considering the size of the bar. Don't get to go as often as I used to unfortunately but always look forward to my visits. Numerous Best Bar None awards and easy to see why

Tickety boo's food was brilliant. We ordered the beer battered Arbroath haddock and the macaroni and cheese. The mac and cheese was very cheesy and one of the best ones I've had at a restaurant. The haddock was delicious and perfectly cooked. The portion sizes were very good especially for the price. The side salads were crisp and fresh too.... 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.
