Pub 3 of the first day of my accessibility pub crawl in Broughty Ferry. The Royal Arch is a small bar on main street of Broughty Ferry with adjoining bistro.
Transport & Parking
There are council car parks/on street parking close by and taxi rank is also nearby. There are also plenty of buses that pass through Broughty Ferry on regular basis. A train station is also situated in Broughty Ferry although I don’t know anything about how often they stop, I know it’s not that much though.
Level access into bar area. The doorway into it is very narrow and isn’t very spacious, however we were lucky that there was a table available when we got there. There is a step to get into the bistro side of The Royal Arch, but you are able to ask for their ramp. A few of the tables in the bistro are also raised to be at a more suitable height for wheelchair users.
There is no disabled toilet here. Down at the beach in Broughty Ferry there is a changing place although, it is only open till 5pm in the Summer and 3:30pm in the Winter.
I didn’t go up to the bar myself to get our drinks but, Sharon the manager came over to speak us after and told me the accessibility information about the bistro side of The Royal Arch and the fact there was no disabled toilet. She was very friendly and helpful.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
