The pared-back interior gives this restaurant a stylish, semi-industrial feel with brasserie-style wooden chairs and stripped floorboards adding some warmth. There are reminders too of the restaurant’s namesake, Dundee University’s first professor of biology. The vibe here is relaxed with a well-stocked bar and classics like steak and chips on the menu alongside quirky dishes like a prosecco jelly with rose petals. On Sundays, a chef’s choice of roast is served throughout the afternoon and evening.
