The Taybank has long been known for its great music and fantastic setting on the banks of the River Tay in one of Scotland's most beautiful villages. Come and spend an afternoon or evening with a local ale or a Scottish gin in our riverside beer garden.
Musicians are always welcome to grab a guitar or fiddle from the wall and start their own sessions, To find out about music and other events taking place at The Taybank please see the “What's On” information below
2020 saw the arrival of something few could have predicted, and something no one was prepared for: COVID-19. It has significantly impacted countless industries, with business abruptly coming to a halt and companies being forced to close their doors. However, one of the sectors most affected by the upheaval caused by COVID is the hospitality industry. Previously, this trade could be considered ‘safe’ in almost any scenario, but 2020 has forced us all to re-evaluate this assertion.
Here at the Taybank Hotel, we made the hard decision to furlough our staff following the announcement on 20th March that all restaurants and bars were to be closed until further notice. During this imposed time off, we have been forced to reconsider the ways that we can run the hotel when we are allowed to reopen.
We have been working hard in our kitchen garden tending to a variety of high quality seasonal produce, and we have recently acquired hens to supply us with the freshest eggs available. Our continued relationship with local growers and suppliers is providing us with a great array of ingredients to complement our home-grown produce.
Our beer garden will allow us to reopen our doors (metaphorically speaking!) as phase 2 of our move out of lockdown begins. However, we’ve had to get creative. Our plans for what a socially distanced Taybank could look like include a horse box bar on the lawn, and a bespoke built outdoor BBQ kitchen cooking a brilliant new menu.
Undoubtedly the Scottish summer will provide us with many a rainy evening, but we’ve got you covered with stretch tents at the ready for those evenings that threaten to rain down in true Perthshire style. Because we are originally an events business, our staff are well used to working outside in all kinds of weather, so the taps will be cold and the stoves will be hot, no matter what the weather does! After three months without a visit to your local pub, we hope that sitting on the banks of the river Tay with a cold pint and hot food will be warmly welcomed by everyone.
We greatly appreciate the support we’ve received from the local community during this time, helping us to stay positive throughout this uncertainty. We hope to see you when we are able to reopen, our staff will be ready and waiting with plenty of cold beer to see you through the summer nights!
Our Cocktail bar upstairs is open Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights 6pm - 12pm
We have daily specials so please check the board when you visit. Thanks
The Taybank has one of Perthshire's biggest and most popular beer gardens. We have three outside seating areas one of which is right on the river. We also have our own vegetable, herb and flower garden.
Over the summer, we hold many events in the garden including regular craft markets, music events and small festivals.
If you’ve got a special occasion coming up, why not celebrate in the intimate surroundings of our new Upstairs bar?
