Blue Marlin it is then. As I said, I'd eat there dailly if I could. The chef has an amazing touch (with food carradale, with food)

Is Dundee actually going to be the venue then?

Peter - I have a good mate who lives in Easthaven, and have also visited The Blue Marlin when it was in Monifieth. Don't mind where we go -what about the Taybridge Bar?

Just been 'refurbished', apparently. I visited, as a homage to the mighty Michael Marra, before it was tarted up.

And don't think I missed that crack about the distance from the bus station, you cheeky article.

I'd happily go to the marlin any (probably every) day of the week. The 2 coudre lunch for just under a tenner is damn good value providing of course everyone likes fish.
There is a place called the Railway Carriage beteen train station and airport that is a wee bit differnet and very good value. No bus service though that i know of and probly 15-20 min walk for the those with shorter pins. Though i could collect and ferry folk.
Bon Journo an Italian style cafe in the town centre is also good food at reasonable prices.
Both have small but interesting menus and serve drinks, posdsibly not draught though and no idea of prices,
Lots of good pubs with decent food in the Old Port, same street as Dundee rep. Can't remember the falmin names though.
If you stay away from the "big" menu , The Blue marlin is good value and for those coming by bus at the absolute utmost a 5min walk. (15mins for n-c on the way back)

Is there anywhere else you'd prefer, Peter?

How often are tou in Dundee. It's only ben at that address for 2 mins.

The two course special is not bad value certainly. Otherwise expensive. Ate there fortnight ago on our 30th. £70 and that was no drink and just lardy ol' me scoffing a pud.

Bloody good chef though and only place I've been where calamari is ctually tasty .

To get back to the business in hand - I have eaten here a couple of times and it's lovely. Also reasonably priced.

Lez, I've got the Aidan Moffat CD if you'd like a copy.

Thanks Red M., like the sound of Aidan Moffat, more local talent! Reminds me a bit of the wonderful Stephin Merritt. Will investigate further.
Sorry, posted this on wrong thread!

Peter, we could all come round to yours, we know where you live.

M - maybes aye, maybes no (probably aye).

But the city of 'jute, jam and journalism' on a Monday? It'll most likely be shut.

Peter

You didn't need to put that in ;-)

In reply to an earlier post on 14 Oct 2012 13:05:32 BDT
I haven't forgotten about it but that might be because I've nevr heard of him or the pub in the first place.

Or have I? and that first statment is pur wrong.

Carradale says:
I sense a bus-hiring and a some form of Scottish PPU Roadshow in the offing......

Bang goes the diet.

Goodfellow and Steven followed by The Ship Inn or Visocchi's?

(Do you remember the pub owned by former Dundee FC right back, Bobby Cox, called "The Sliding Tackle"?)

Lez Lee says:
Peter, the bus I mentioned is the only one to Dunfermline and is every 2 hours.

In reply to an earlier post on 14 Oct 2012 12:45:09 BDT
Down the Ferry would be rare and handy.
Midweek jaunts can be a bit tricky outwith the school hols but this side of the Forth certainly makes it more likely i can attend. The smaller towns villages are not too traumatic to drive to and in.

Carradale says:
I think Dunfermline may have banned all bus services from Falkirk, they being in football term known locally as "The Sons of Satan"
