The original library and drawing room of Taypark House is the perfect home for our impressive restaurant. Each room enjoys uninterrupted views across the botanical gardens and the beautiful, shimmering River Tay. We've sympathetically restored these two rooms to highlight their original features, whilst adding our own modern vintage twist - like the hanging teapot lamps dangling from the ornate plaster ceiling, or the cluster chandelier with pretty, patterned lampshades draped from the central rose. It really is an incredible setting for delicious dining.

Our award winning chef Glenn Roach who has previously held 3 AA rosettes looks to recrate classic dishes and lets the locally sourced produce speak for it self

    So disappointed with our Father’s Day lunch. One of the worst we’ve experienced. Especially saddened by the fact that when we were there in March midweek we had such a wonderful meal and left really good reviews. This time was the complete opposite. The bread board was pathetic! When you pay £5 for bread you expect more than 5 slices of stale, cold bread. At this price and venue I’d expect a selection of seeded, plain rolls and slices with oil and butter. The soup was flavourless, with more stale sliced bread. The portions were incredibly tiny. My son thought his main was his starters. My daughters roast beef was so thin and small that when the fat was cut off, she was left with an inch strip of beef. I asked fir my beef to be well done however there was blood running off it. Again, I only had 2 very thin strips of beef. However, my husbands dinner was terrible. He ordered the steak pie, it was the driest lump of pastry we’ve ever seen. There wasn’t a drop of gravy in the pie and the three mouthfuls he had, were so chewy he couldn’t eat a single mouthful. He sent it away and was so incredibly angry at the whole situation he refused to choose anything else. As he explained to the waitress, if the chef couldn’t manage a simple steak pie, we weren’t spending money on more food that wasnt up to basic standards. The service was far from up to scratch. There were lots of very young and what seemed to be very new to the service industry, untrained waiting staff. They were all very nice and pleasant, However, there was no one who seemed to be a manger in the restaurant so much as once throughout our time there. When things were going so wrong with the food, a manager should have been there immediately. The wrong wine was brought out, then the wrong wine glass. I had to ask the waitress to take away the menus, empty bottles and the 4 bread plates and knives as they were bringing out the starters when these were all piled up. There were only 2 other tables there at that time.

    Location, dining room and staff were great. Unfortunately the food was a big disappointment. I paid £15 for soup and a sandwich and although the portion of soup was small it was tasty enough however the sandwich was very poor. I ordered the egg mayo and it was 2 slices of cheap white loaf spread with egg mayo and cut in to 4 triangles. Basically what I send my kids to school with for a packed lunch. It also didn’t help that there was egg shell in it too. The chicken Caesar salad was equally substandard and left the person who ordered it entirely underwhelmed. Macaroni cheese did not look home made and the garlic bread was left untouched. The fish and chips was however better received and we were jealous as a rather appetising burger and chips went past us to another table. Overall the venue was right but the food v cost fell way short of expectations. Sorry but better food needs to be serviced at those prices.

    My friend ordered soup and a sandwich, which wasn’t what the menu said we did speak to the waiter about it. I ordered a burger which when came was chicken would have preferred beef but the waiter never asked. I didn’t say anything at the time. The sweet was nice.

    We arrived early and we were greeted by a one of the staff a very polite host, We ordered our starters smoked salmon with cream cheese and asparagus with Parma ham and poached egg both were very good albeit quite expensive, the main courses were a different story I had the steak pie which was dry although it did come with a watery ju or gravy there was10 pieces of meat and steamed vegetables which should have been roasted, dissatisfied to say the least, my wife had the chicken burger and the bacon must have been left over from breakfast it was that hard, yes I could have complained but that is not my nature the staff on the other hand were excellent, I should say we were on a itison voucher which could had something to do with do with the poor food quality

    A very enjoyable lunch, nicely presented, cheerfully and efficiently served, generous portions ( far from being the case at " another establishment" where I ate earlier in the week). Like everywhere prices have risen since last visit. Two of us ordered the lamb with reservations about the cost but it was well worth it. At a combined age of 290 yrs the four of us objected to the background music but appreciate that this is now essential for young people who cannot do anything without it, even eat.

    Where to start? By far the worst afternoon tea we have been served at any level, never mind a 4 star hotel which appears proud of it's food offering! Sandwiches 'wet' and clearly made well in advance. Four large scones between 2, which would have been excellent if they were fresh and not all just plain. Cold pancakes cut to look befitting of an afternoon tea filled with cream and berries. A bought-in tartlet case filled with the same cream and berries as above. A brownie type offering, which appeared to be an 'offcut' and tasted burnt. Menu advised clotted cream would be provided but Chantily used for two of the cakes and for the scones. The member of staff in charge apologised profusely but failed to convince me that this wasn't the normal standard. If it is, I would advise those responsible to visit other establishments to gain an understanding of an acceptable offering and in the interim refrain from attempting to pass off what was served to us as 'afternoon tea'.

    Our mains were lovely as always. We had a side of chorizo macaroni as had it before and was fantastic, however last night we were very disappointed was nothing like the first time we had it, the sauce was very thin and was not crisp on top, also could taste any chorizo, hence reason it wasn't eaten

Thank you for your feedback on the chorizo mac n cheese and we will look in to this straight away, Your feedback helps us to improve, Kind Regards, general manager

    The Taypark Hotel provides a good service, although the staff cleaned up around us in the Bar, which is not normal for a Hotel of this quality. The Hotel was not busy and we felt uncomfortable at the end. We understood, that the next day would be busy, but this quality issue was somewhat unexpected.

    Taypark House HotelResponded on 19 May 2022Dear PeterC, Thank you for your positive review on the whole, We will look in to the way the evening staff set up and to ensure guest experiences are not affected, this feedback will certainly help us to improve, Kind Regards, General Manager

    Initially when arrived was produced with breakfast menu however I had wanted afternoon tea. Was made aware that this should have been booked the day before. I had booked the table about a week prior to my visit but there was nothing stating afternoon tea had to be specifically asked for. However our server was amazing and went out of his way to speak to the chef and we managed to get our afternoon team. He went above and beyond for us and it was much appreciated. The experience was good and I would definitely go back again

    I was disappointed the menu does not cater for vegan very well, some inaccuracies with V signs against Chorizo Mac & Cheese when it's clearly a meat product. The rise in plant based diet is not just ethics but in health benefits so when mentioning this at the time of booking ahead it would have been good to have more choices. Especially when it was also marked as a birthday celebration. Some dairy alternatives, vegan and gluten free bakery and sweets would have been welcome. The food was very good and enjoyable when it came, although very small portions in the mains. The service was excellent and will come back to try the outdoors Gin Garden experience in the summer.

    Two meals were served 5 minutes before the other 2 my friends scrambled egg was cold on the outside and warm in the middle ….I had bacon ( which was very fatty ) sausage ( which was the worst I’ve ever had ) and fried egg ( which was snotty ) the whole meal cold it was very disappointing….I mentioned it to the waitress when she asked how my meal was and mine was then taken off the bill …however I would rather have had a good hot meal instead of a free one !

    The food was very tasty and well presented, although there was a strange predominance of soaked sultanas in a couple of savoury dishes. The wine was not very chilled and our water failed to appear. The young staff were cheerful and pleasant but it was disconcerting to be served by someone in their puffer jacket and there was little attention shown between serving the courses. The ambience was very lacking as the overhead lighting and lack of candles made the fairly attractive room feel stark and the speaker set up & background pop music was unsuitable for evening dining. Overall, the decor of the place is a muddle of varied ideas, lacks cohesion and spoils what could be a very good tasting menu experience.

    The chicken liver parfait was uneatable, far, far too much salt, and it was the consistency of double cream, far, far too liquid. The roast beef was dry, the gravy was gloopy, but the Yorkshire pudding was nice, as were the vegetables. I mentioned the parfait to our waiter, and he sort of shrugged and ran off. We won't be coming back here.

    My son purchased for myself and my husband the 5 course tasting menu. We arrived 10 minutes early only to be told there had been a mistake on the computer and the outside dining we had booked was not available. We were then put into the inside dining area overlooking the domes. Recieved and finished our first courses before even being offered a drink and even then had to stop someone to ask. Food was okay but not hot just warm. Problem with the main course. Supposed to be Sirloin steak dish. Dishes appeared and steak was rare. I asked if mine could be cooked slightly more? Now understand why it was served this way as not Sirloin but a tip of Silverside cut served instead. Cheaper cut of meat and by the time cooked slightly less rare was actually to tough to eat. My husband complained and was offered to discuss with the Chef/Owner who proceeded to maintain it was Sirloin. Which my husband stated from the cut of beef shown it clearly was not. I fully understand that many business such as this have been hit hard but people like myself who have been working on the front line of covid for almost 2 years deserve to have decent service if paid for and we did not get this. Would definately not recommend or return

    Taypark House HotelResponded on 23 February 2022Hi TraceyF, As discussed on the evening we have never bought silverside at the hotel and our butcher will back this up, We use a very reliable butcher in Dundee. I am sorry to inform you but it was not our computer that made the mistake but you choose an outside table instead of our dine at dome option on our website. Everybody deserve good service and we are fortunate on the whole we really do deliver this to the majority of guests who visit. Kind Regards

    Had this experience as a Christmas gift, so don't know cost. First impressions, beautiful old villa, tastefully decorated. Dining room seemed a bit like a tea room, but once lights were dimmed and candles on tables it was fine. Food (5 course tasting menu) was lovely, just enough. Weren't offered option of wine for each course, which we noticed another table was, but didn't spoil our enjoyment. Would definitely go back the afternoon tea looked lovely. Tgank you.
