If you're staying in one of our Dundee serviced apartments, why not unwind in one of the city's numerous beer gardens? Throughout the city, there are several beer gardens. We've compiled a list of some of the locals' favourite hidden treasures and hot spots.
When the sunny weather hits in Dundee, there is only one place to visit: the local beer garden. Here are five hidden beer gardens where you will enjoy the tiny city's excellent weather this summer.
1) The Giddy Goose
Morning, noon, or night, the Giddy Goose's gorgeous new bohemian-style beer garden is the ideal place to unwind with a drink. Whether you want a cup of coffee to catch some early morning rays or a bottle of prosecco to start off an afternoon of stylish boozing, this prime Perth Road location is the place to be.
Why not enjoy the Giddy Goose's excellent pot tails and light nibbles while people-watching in this delightful suntrap? Furthermore, the restaurant/beer garden has a relatively large wine cellar with a broad selection of rose, white, and red wines - yet another reason why this is the spot for you today.
2) 172 at The Caird
172 at The Caird has a lovely outside patio area where you can enjoy their high-quality food and drinks. You'll have no trouble soaking up the morning sun in this cosy and energetic environment, which opens at 10 a.m. for coffee.
172 offers delectable bistro fare and great river views, making it ideal for a sunny day like today. It's in a prime location on Perth Road, as are most of Dundee's secret beer gardens, so you'll find it fast.
3) The Pear Tree
Lee, the chef and proprietor of The Pear Tree, welcomes every customer with a pleasant grin. Diners may eat outside, while drinkers can relax on their covered patio area in the sun.
The well-known restaurant has been in business for over 20 years and is nestled in the countryside, offering tourists wonderful views and the chance to witness some local wildlife. Reservations are required for lunches, teas, and dinners at The Pear Tree, which is open from noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
4) Dr Noodles
Dr Noodles in Nethergate may appear to be small at first glance, but it extends towards the back to reveal a noodle garden. Sit in the sunshine with friends in the centre of the shimmering fairy lights and enjoy your favourite Noods selection. You can have a refreshing drink or glass of wine here while avoiding the chaos of Dundee's city core.
