Love going here for a drink, the pub is always so warm and friendly, since the new owners have taken it over they have made a dramatic improvement to the building, its so good sitting outside in the summer sunshine, or in winter with the outdoor fires on and sitting under the fairy lights. The pub regularly has live music... More

This pub overlooks the river Tay and a victorian stone bridge built by Thomas Telford in one of the most beautiful towns in Scotland (technically a city because of the Cathedral?). Only a couple of real ales on offer but also has live music and a food menu so definitely worth a visit.

Four of us stopped here for lunch inside. We ordered a burger, pork ribs x 2 and venison borguignon. All were awful. Venison was tasteless, burger was a cheap nasty burger and cheese was missing, the ribs were congealed and tasted really bad, particularly the colder they got. The chips with the ribs also tasted like frozen oven chips. Too... More

We visited here while we were glamping nearby in Kennacoil, and stopped for something to eat. We were really happy to find that it was dog friendly, and there were several dogs there. Although it's relatively small, there was enough room for the dogs to be kept a decent distance apart so it's fine if your dig isn't particularly friendly... More

Nice place to come especially on cold winter nights, The wood burning stove makes it nice and inviting and a great place in the summer to sit and enjoy the local beers with a spectacular view of the river! also really enjoy the music on Wednesdays and Thursday nights.

Public house and venue situated on the banks of the river Tay, in Highland Perthshire.

The Taybank changed hands in Summer 2014 and is currently undergoing some much needed, and significant renovation work.
During the renovation, the bar has been open, the kitchen continues to get better and better under the supervision of our fantastic new head chef, and our music sessions play on...
