Huge portions of very tasty pub food at reasonable prices. I had chicken gougons and could not finish my meal due to the portion size! .I have recommended the Phoenix for... More

I found the staff to be helpful and swift. The prices were inexpensive. They show sports, but not in an overwhelming way. A bar with sports,... More

Just had a bar lunch in this pub. Havent been there for a few years.Certificates on the wall for Best Pub 2013. So obviously popular until recently. Decor is now too shabby and badly needs a refurb. Drinks not cheap but OK. No lemon slices for a G + T but decent pint of Peroni. Food very greasy and cheeseburger... More

Very friendly and attentive staff, cheap prices and a good array of spirits and beers. What's not to like so close to the station?

The Phoenix is deservedly a Dundee institution. Great decor that reminds me of brown cafes in the Netherlands. Superb bar staff. Great drinks selection and tremendous pub food at good prices.

A great 'old man's' pub with no airs or graces. Get a pizza and pint of chips and enjoy the atmosphere!
