After four long months of lockdown – where socialising was restricted to walks in the park and zoom calls – beer gardens in Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Fife finally reopened in April.
And The Courier composed the perfect guide to some of the best beer gardens open for business.
Our interactive map gives you all you need to know – like whether you can take your children and pet dog, or what food and drink is on offer at each business – on some of the most popular pubs in Tayside and Fife.

As well as that, we have content to complement your weekend pint which includes:
- A tailored pub quiz by The Courier’s nostalgia team, giving you the chance to test your local pub knowledge.
- A Spotify playlist, giving you some feelgood tunes to listen to as you catch up with friends over a drink.
- The best pub grub recipes from some of the area’s top chefs as well as brilliant cocktail recipes from the best bartenders around, which you can try at home before or after your trip to the beer garden.
Lockdown a ‘punishing experience’
The last lockdown was a punishing experience for license holders across Tayside and Fife.
Many fear that even after investing thousands of pounds to stay afloat during lockdown they will still struggle to survive, while others have admitted they have neither the finances nor the enthusiasm to begin all over again.
Some were forced to close as the economic challenges of the pandemic took hold.
But pubs across the region also rallied during the closures, introducing different services like take-aways and collections.
And some pubs in Dundee made plans to introduce more outdoor seating areas as they welcomed back customers.
