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

    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

    Good Morning PatriciaS, Thank you for your positive review and we are pleased to read you will return in the near future. 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.

    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 2022

    Hi 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.

A fine old house but I like my old houses to be comfortable.and the decor is like- can't make up its mind. For instance:- Wallpaper in dning room -Get Rid!

    The waiters didn't know anything about the dishes they were serving. Food was bland, sole dish said it came with brocoli and pancetta which it didn't. Venison Wellington, although quite nice was dry and missing sauce. Chocolate mouse dessert was like a chocolate soup. And I had to get up to look for a waiter to ask for cutlery for my cheese. Very small portions and we both left hungry. Waiting staff were very distant and didn't even try to offer any sides to make up for the portion size. £100 for a 3 course meal for two when we weren't able to eat one of the desserts is ridiculous.

    This was our second visit. The first time was with my friend and his wife. It had a high bar to maintain. It didn't disappoint. We had been given a voucher for the 5 course taster. My wife is not as adventurous as myself and they were quite happy to transfer my wife to the standard menu. The service was ably handled by Marcus, who was fully aware of what he was serving and described it to a tee. The banter was also good with Marcus and made our visit very enjoyable. The food was beautifully presented, tasty and the courses were served with a minimum delay. Would I recommend Taypark House Hotel? I already have, to anyone who cares to listen. I love the place, the location, the setting, the staff and the food are excellent. One of the new features we noticed were pods outside in the gardens. One of the staff said they were heated/ air conditioned. As long as you don't mind people watching you eat. When we were leaving and I was paying for our extras, my wife was talking to one of the owners. He was quite to explain his mission statement and what was in store. He was also happy to listen to the rambling of a couple out for the night. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed.
