We’d underestimated just how busy Broughty Ferry could be on a Saturday night: this place was rammed, but we just scored a table by sheer luck.
This is a CAMRA award winning pub for multiple years, and seems well enough liked by the community for them to get all in a froth about the refurb which seems to have been completed fairly recently- when we were there, a local CAMRA member (yes, with beard) was taking photos and being shown round. The pub is three cottages, turned into a pub-with-rooms. The refurb has opened it up, which is a shame, but it’s still a decent place despite Greene King (Belhaven)’s best efforts. Great beer (courtesy of non-GK guest ales), decentish pub food, really great staff, pleasant customers (a requirement, given the density).
