About The Barrelman
Stylish bar & kitchen in Dundee's city centre. Situated close to the V&A, McManus Gallery and Caird Hall with a menu of wee plates inspired by the local produce and heritage. Discover a new world of flavours from the wide selection of craft spirits, beers and wines.
Gluten free choice limited to only soup (which I don’t like) and rump steak (which I wasn’t hungry enough for.) Asked for a gluten -free ‘beef burger’ without the bun. Should have been described as a thin ‘hamburger’. Tasted more like Lorne sausage than beef. Highly salted. Overpriced at £12 for a burger, and chips and salad. Ate very little, although my mother ate the chips. She had just a starter of haggis Bon - Bon’s which she enjoyed. No atmosphere, but to be fair it was a Monday evening, when no alcohol was allowed indoors. Staff friendly, but should have offered a discount when I complained about the burger. Won’t return unless wider choice of gluten-free options.
Great friendly pub, glad to see it coming to life again, have already recommended it to friends..
Nice refurbed pub, lovely staff
Food was really nice but service wasn’t great x
Had booked on app for outside for drinks.When we arrived to our allocated slot was told their were no bookings for outside even though I showed the confirmation our booking wasnt honoured. was told "you can always see if someone will squeeze up" even though this is against restrictions and social distancing measures. We decided to go indoors for food and explained what had happened and asked if a table outside could it be reserved for us. We ordered food via the app which was ok very limited choice. Once a table became available outside we were told we could go to it by the waitress. Once outside the waitress came chasing us for the food bill even though I said I'd ordered and already paid through the app. My partner ordered drinks being fully aware of being contactless to be told the machine doesn't work outside so he had to go inside to pay anyway. Hopefully just teething problems from being new premises but felt pretty insulted to being chased for a bill which I'd already paid.
Really amazing place with super nice and attentive staff can’t wait to get back there when there’s a gig on!
Great addition to the Dundee scene. The food was really good and plentiful- a modern take on pub grub. Sadly the atmosphere was slightly lacking due to the Scottish government regulations and their inability to serve alcohol. This place has potential and deserves to be a fantastic day and night venue in Dundee when things return to normal. It is well situated for all the local attractions including V and A
Burgers and Mac & Cheese were great. Chips ok but a little bit “Fast food”. Would have preferred some skin on fries
Good choice of food and drink was busy at time but service could have been quicker but overall would come back
Fantastic customer service, great pub food done well. The pub is lovely airy space, clean and following all the COVID Rules, felt very safe. Will be come a regular venue when visiting our daughter who’s a student in Dundee.
Very impressed with the new decor and layout etc. Staff were extremely pleasant and chatty. Service was quick and food was good. Will definitely be back.
Seen so many changes to this bar over the years but this is by far the best it’s ever been. Really classy and modern decor, nice atmosphere, lovely friendly staff, great service and reasonable prices. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Will definitely be back.
Lovely pub. Lovely food. Nice friendly atmosphere with very friendly and efficient staff. Will definitely be back.
Great atmosphere and service well worth a visit
Beautiful place. Really friendly & welcoming staff. Food was really good.... only criticism food wise would be that it would have been better if the mac cheese came with salad. Also when ordering prosecco it would be better to serve a mini bottle rather than just a glass already poured. Other than that everything was great and we will definitely be back. :)
We had a great day out yesterday lovely food great service and in beautiful surrounding
First visit - the fish & chips were great, the service good with the young lass coming over regularly to check our drinks, atmosphere had a buzz which was great with no sports or news on the TVs. Would recommend
Happy enough to return, staff were polite and helpful. Easy to get a table.
Lovely place ! Had really nice cocktails at a very reasonable price and place looks great on the inside! Definitely going to be our new regular. Excited to come back to try the food😊
Amazing food and drinks, friendly and welcoming staff. Took a wee while to get someone's attention for our bill, however. All in all, 5/5
Excellent service and food
All brand spanking new,covid secure,still got the spiral staircase,great food and service and the best Scottish breakfast tea.
