Great outdoor seating overlooking the River Tay but get there early if you want a seat inside. Good selection of beer and food.

If you like 'jamming' then this is a must. We go every time we are in Dunkeld. Locals and holiday makers turn up to share their music with the drinkers. It's a merry, noisy night. Lots of fun.

Had always driven past on way to other places and the crowd outside seemed to show was nice. So here we are, major refurbishment in progress, but still provided a great welcome, good drink, lovely food at a reasonable price. Service excellent. Well worth stopping, especially on a nice summer evening (ha ha not this year)with lots of tables outside.

Great service, atmosphere and food. Simple as that. This feels like an authentic Scottish pub that goes a bit beyond. We loved it.

I love this pub. It has a lovely quaint Scottish feel & often has live music on. It's great in the winter with its cosy fire and fantastic in the summer with lots of outside space and even a beer garden on the river bank. A definite must if you are in Dunkeld or Highland Perthshire.

I've frequented the Taybank for many years and it's always been a personal favourite when I've stopped off in Dunkeld. Since the new owners have taken over, the pub has improved a great deal. You're going to have friendly staff, good food and drink, and the bonus of the location, which is stunning all year round. Not to mention the... More

This wee pub in a beautiful setting has always been one of my favourites but had fallen into disrepair over the last few years. Since being taken over by the new owners the charm and lively feel has been restored. The refurb looks great and has breathed a new lease of life into the place. Great food, brilliant local bands,...
