Popped in for a few drinks while staying in Birnam. Good atmosphere. Different prices charged for rounds!! Packed so we sat outside for a while. Getting done up so would like to return to see what it's like when it's finished!

So last time I visited I wasn't blown away. Old tatty, dirty, poor quality food but good live music. Good news! It's under new owners and much improved its had a paint job and a deep clean and been kept clean! The menu is revamped and very good a bit short but all food done well. Overall very nice.

We were up in Dunkeld for 4 nights and ate in the Taybank two of them, have to say the food was great and a great selection of beers. Staff were all friendly and they even made a fuss of or pup. We'll be back up next month for a weekend and can't wait to visit again.

We booked a table on the day and they accomodated which was handy. It is a decent atmosphere in a proper pub so a restaurant style meal was not expected. We ordered a mixture of meals - blue burger (pretty good), stovies (were raved about) and steak pie (again, good feedback). The deserts were great - the chef actually made... More

I loved the live music and traditional Scottish food. It is a rather small pub (seems to have gotten smaller as I have gotten older) but it is packed with character.

A wainters walk around the frost footpaths of Dunkeld and Loch o the Lowes ebded with a well earned (well we thought so) libation at the Taybank. We ate lunch and were welcomed to a gret scots pub atmosphere on a saturday lunchtime. Sadly we had been looking forward to the once signature stovies, but instead our party enjoyed god... More

The Taybank Inn is an institution in Dunkeld and has had a reputation as a hub for Scottish musics for decades. We pop in whenever we can for the tunes and it's always welcoming, especially on a Thursday night when it's a traditional music session with all musicians welcome. The building has needed a bit of TLC over the last... More

Back to brilliant again. Been sad to see decline, but now with new owners on the up again. If you haven't been here for years, go again...as I say, on the up again!

Have passed this place many times and always fancied stopping for a meal. Took the plunge on 28th November, wish we hadn't bothered. I appreciate that this place has a good reputation as a music venue but the restaurant failed miserably. The place was being worked on and their was scaffolding outside, that really didn't make any difference but it... More

Recently spent a great week in Dunkeld and loved it. For a small town we were very impressed by the number of good restaurants, cafe's and bars. Our favourite 'pub' for atmosphere and food was the Taybank. It is a work in progress but don't be put off by the external scaffolding. We were freezing and the open for business... More
