Nice wee bar/restaurant in a good location. Seemed clean and tidy but a few things let it down. Many of the items on the menu were not available and staff were not the most friendly of bunch. Saying that what we did have to eat was good. Maybe just caught them on a bad day. Will probably try again sometime... More

My friends and i came here for some drinks after reading the good reviews. It's a typical weatherspoon-style pub with similar drinks, food, furnishings etc. It's quite a small place so hard to get seats. The prices seemed to be much the same as most places we visited in Dundee that day.

As always, good food at a good price with great service. Always enjoyable but chef excelled today with the Yellow Pea & Bacon Soup, superb. Will be back soon.

Got everything it needs in a little small space, bar staff are fantastic too! Prices of drinks very reasonable, unlike that awful bar rewind a stone throw away.

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.
