THE GALLEON BAR - EXTERIOR

A little reminder of the curvy exterior of The Galleon in Whitehall Crescent. A pub I used to drop in on now and again rather than regularly. In fact, looking back, I think I only went there when there were bands playing, that would have been in the late 70's early 80's.
The main reason why it wasn't a "regular" so to speak, was probably down to the basic fact that it was quite difficult to get around ALL the pubs, all the time...although there were quite a few of us who gave it a good go..!!

  1. I think the new owners have changed the frontage, which is a shame, as it looks like a real pub from the outside and there's not too many of them left in Dundee these days.

    2. The Chart Room wasn't the pub's name. It was the Galleon's upstairs area.

  5. I drank in there when Bill Brannan was manager for Dryborough brewers in the mid 70s. Some great darts nights!
