The Speedwell Bar

  • Drinks In Dundee
  • Perth Road

The Speedwell Bar is an iconic Dundee pub, known locally as ‘Mennies’ offers a warm welcome and plenty of well-earned refreshment and is a well loved and popular spot for both locals and visitors alike.

Built in 1903 for James Speed (hence the name) and designed by architects John Bruce & Son, is one of the very few Edwardian pubs in Scotland, and the only one in Dundee, that has retained its original shopfront and fittings, due perhaps to their original exceptional craftsmanship and has been listed for the quality of its interior.
