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,...

Visited in May and was concious that last time we visited, a few years ago, the place was a bit tired and unloved. To some extent that might have added to it's uniqueness but there comes a time when any pub needs freshened up. Was pleasantly surprised to discover that the new owners have really done a nice job modernising... More

My family and I popped in for a meal on a busy Saturday night, the pub was busy with drinkers but the owners promptly organised us a table and made us feel very welcome. The menu is well thought out without having pages and pages of options to choose from. Each dish as tempting as the next. The food didnt... More
