Bog standard Wetherspoons - ale just about drinkable.

Came in here late on Tuesday evening. From the outside, this Lloyds No. 1 Bar looks small. But inside it stretches back quite a way and has an upper floor. So there is always plenty of tables. The 2 bar staff struggled to cope with the volume of customers. It took around 10 minutes to get served on each visit to the bar. God help anybody who wants a drink on a Friday or Saturday night. To give credit to the staff, they were making every attempt to serve people in order with the lady maintaining good vigilance. Ales were Strathaven Clydesdale IPA & Avondale, Hook Norton Old Hooky, Kelburn Red Smiddy, Caledonian Deuchars IPA & Greene King Abbot. Ciders left over from Wetherspoon's recent festival were Healeys Cloudy Cornish Scrumpy, Westons Old Rosie With Rhubarb & Barbourne Crimson King. My visit was cut short by a planned fire alarm. They did give everybody warning and in fairness, they waited for people to finish eating. That gave me just enough time to down my pint and leave when the alarm forced everybody out onto the street after 11pm at night! Apparently they do this on busy Saturday nights too.

very surprised by this esablishment, they have added more ale banks! i went in 3 days ago and had the chioce of 5 ales, i spoke with the bar man who was enthusiastic about his ales and had said they now have 3-5 ales available, thumbs up the capitol!

Visited during a Thursday afternoon so not too busy. Range of ales is disappointing compared to the other Wetherspoons' Dundee establishment -the Counting House in Reform Street.

In complete contrast to the Counting House, the Capitol is bright and airy and you get a "lift" merely by walking into the place. THe CH is depressing.

Sampled the best rump steak I think I have ever had in a Wetherspoons' pub.

A lot better air con in this 2 level pub than the non existant in the other Spoons The Counting House.Sadly all 3 handpumps had the "coming soon" label showing so I opted for a guinness.Cheap though with carlsberg @ 1.69 and Deuchars(when on) for just 1.35 a pint! 6.5/10

Very spacious, nice food, efficient staff, good pricing structure. Don't really have anything bad to say about it except that it perhaps attracts some of the shellsuit-wearing, buggy-pushing brigade at times.

This Lloyd's is a pub that has a habit of attracting Dundee's louts when they want to come out to play of an evening, particularly on weekends. Drink and food-wise, its great value for money with good staff. Its at its best during off-peak times of the day.

Loads of space, great for a social night out. The drink isn't badly priced and they can do some pretty impressive offers. The staff are rather strict however and at least the ones I was served by seemed to want rid of us (I was part of a group of late teens/early 20s).
