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
The Taybank’s take on Oktoberfest 2020
Oktoberfest may have been cancelled in Germany this year, but we’ve got beer lovers in Perthshire covered throughout this month. We’ll be open all day and all night (well, until 10pm that is) seven days a week for our German inspired event. With the end of 2020 now in sight we want to end the year on a high, and rumour has it, Oktoberfest is kicking off a run of similar events to see the year out. Make sure you join us this month!
Our beer garden has been transformed into a spectacular indoors-outdoors space. Our huge stretch tents have been strung with pretty festoon lights, and there’s heaters to warm your hands by on the chilly October nights. As people begin to fill the tables and the beer gets flowing, we have no doubt that the atmosphere in the garden will be hard to beat. No other pub in Dunkeld is hosting anything like this throughout October – standing out from the crowd is our speciality – so why not switch up your usual pub nights and join us for a unique experience?
We’ll be well-stocked with over 20 German beers for you to choose from, including crowd-pleasers such as Budvar and Hofbrau, as well as some local and crafty brews. Make sure you come thirsty, ready to sample the great selection! On the menu you’ll find our homemade sauerkraut and pretzel sticks alongside our locally sourced bratwursts. These will be the freshest bratwursts you’ll have tried outside Germany. Whether you’re stopping by for a pint, for lunch, or for dinner we’ve got you covered. And be sure to keep an eye out for our staff dressed in lederhosen – it’ll feel just like you’re in Germany, we promise!
We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response from locals and visitors alike since we reopened back in July, and we feel very lucky to have been as busy as we have been. We hope that this alternative approach to service this month will be enjoyed by our loyal customers. We hope to see some familiar faces drop by during the event, as well as some new visitors of course!
Beautifully renovated, decorated in calming, peaceful colours, with en suite shower rooms.
