Didn't realise it had changed hands. Used to be great grub at reasonable prices. Now gone slightly upmarket (and expensive)and not what you really want for a lunch menu. Still a nice place for a pint but would give the food a miss next time. Did have the soup but nothing special (I make better Cullen Skink). Need a petition... More

Popped in here on a Fri evening and there was a great buzz about the place. I ordered the burger and my mum had the fish. Both were excellent and the burger in particular was extremely flavoursome. There is also live music on saome evenings and a warm friendly atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

We've gone to the Taybank many times over the years and it's a brilliant location particularly if you can sit on the terrace looking out over the Tay. We were pleased to see it being renovated, although this si still work in progress. However we were shocked at the prices for the bar meals. £15.95 for a venison stew and... More

My partner and I have enjoyed a good few tunes and meals at The Taybank over the years. I particularly liked their stovies, back in the day, which were renowned for being tasty and good value. A couple of years ago we stopped there for lunch (at 1pm), after a long bike ride. It wasn’t busy inside or out, with... More

Lovely location, peacefully ambient with some lovely music and a view to match. Worth popping by! Decided not to eat on this occasion as maybe the menu catered more for main meals than lunch (12 mid day) time trade but would come back for an evening meal 100%

Good service and friendly locals made for a welcome retreat from the cold weather. Extra cold Guinness and west in tap. Dog friendly too.

Perfect location on the river and great atmosphere but the food is incredible. The chips and the vegetables are beautiful. Recommend the pork belly on the specials board and definitely have a pudding. Beautiful.

Inside is always nice and cosy to sit in. The bar area is slightly small but its a great place to sit in the evening with the fire roaring and only the table candles to illuminate the bar. We have not eaten here yet but we intend to. My wife will post her food review later. The food going out... More

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...
