We go here quite a bit for snacks, lunch or just a drink and I went here with my daughter for lunch. I ordered the chicken strips starter (it comes with salad & dip) and my daughter ordered mac & cheese with bread & butter... it was a new waitress....and she took ages for everything - in fact the barman...

Stopped by for a couple of drinks, got quite a frosty reception from 2 regulars. Got the impression we weren't welcome for sitting in their spot. We would have moved if it had been requested. Overall a nice looking boozer with good range of beers and lagers plus clean bogs , just a shame about the regulars

Very traditional boozer, with lovely interior and exterior with loads of character. Gets busy for footie/sport. An impressive choice of beers - got to be at least 20+ different beers on tap. Definitely a more mature drinking crowd (over 25). Had fish and chips early evening, didn't think much of the chips but the fish was absolutely stunning, even more... More

We visited The Trades House Bar during a weekend in Dundee. We only had a few drinks and didn't eat but thought the atmosphere was great. The service was quick and friendly and they serve a cracking good pint of Guinness.
