Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have to say this place is exceptional - the food , the dining room , the setting - just beautiful Probably the best meal I have had in years - around £40 for 3 courses - comparable to a pub in nearby tourist trap...Pitlochry ( only 4 miles away) Service outstanding - I had black pudding scotch egg (a special), hake with veg (another special) and the most wonderful rhubarb/raspberry dessert with ice cream that you can imagine We might just have to go and stay overnight to appreciate this wonderful food againMore

Excellent menu, wonderfully cooked with nearly impeccable service in a beautiful location; what’s not to love? I cant recommend this place highly enough; worth travelling for.

What a great find on a miserably wet day. Didn’t have a table booked but were lucky that a pre booked table hadn’t been taken so they were happy to accommodate us. Very busy, every table occupied and after our excellent lunch which was served...so pleasantly and efficiently we could understand why. Great food, nice setting overlooking the river, a credit to the hospitality industry. We highly recommend and will most definitely return.More

We arrived here after a muddy cycle. The owner and staff were very helpful and let us clean up a bit before lunch. Our soup and bread was very tasty. We were impressed by the warmth of staff and the quality of the lunch

Would give the inn on the Tay 6 stars if I could. Arrived 3 minutes before food went off. In other establishments I'm quite sure we would have been turned away but not here. "No problem" the manager told us. We ordered a pizza for...quickness and it did not disappoint. Perfect base and topping. As it was so relaxing we had a few coffees after our drinks as the atmosphere was superb. The extra star I would have given would have been for the exceptional service provided. Will be back soon especially when the weather improves as the setting on the river is perfect for relaxing.More

I rarely bother to review but when the offer is this good it ought to be broadcast. The ambience, service and exceptional quality of the dining experience could not be rated more highly. Bravo!

The Inn on the Tay never fails to deliver fantastic food. Just visited with my wife, different starters and mains. Every element of each dish was superb, the sauce to accompany the melt in the mouth beef was absolutely delicious. The staff were attentive, happy...and full of smiles. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.More

Booked our holiday cottage just so that I could come back for dinner here, after popping in for a coffee in the summer, whilst waiting for my family to come back from rafting on the river. Gutted as I had not checked dates and staff...hols were only ending half way through our stay so my poor relatives had to put up with my cooking until the Tay was open! ( but certainly don't begrudge the wonderful staff a well deserved rest) We ate there on two consecutive nights each one being fantastic. Could not fault a thing. Food, delicious....Service, friendly, welcoming, absolutely brilliant. Third night we made the mistake of going elsewhere that was supposed to be five star but we had a main course left and headed back to the Tay who looked after us splendidly with cocktails and a dessert . In my humble opinion this is without a doubt the best restaurant in the area. I can't wait to come back again and stay in the rooms. A little slice of heaven. Miss it miss out! Sorry no photos as we were too busy having a lovely time.More

Having enjoyed a very good lunch here earlier in the year we decided to return to make use of the rooms in a DB&B package with friends. Firstly, and most importantly, the staff throughout our stay were charming, polite, friendly, helpful and efficient. It was...an absolute pleasure to be there. We enjoyed drinks in the cosy bar, dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and relaxed in our very comfortable and spacious rooms. The only disappointment was perhaps dinner on this occasion. The menu was nothing special (odd, just before Christmas) and the dishes were rather lacklustre, much against expectations following our previous experience. A hummus and dukkah starter was dry and tasteless, a chimmichurri chicken breast in a brioche bun was similar, dry and chewy. Luckily breakfast was much better and nicely served again, with plenty of choice (we filled in a form the night before as requested). We would return but the dinner menu needs a bit of an overhaul first.More

I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world and eat different foods all over the place, but this restaurant is by far my favourite of all time. I can’t fault a single thing about this place: - the location is amazing right next the river,...it’s so incredible when it’s rapid as well and loud! - the atmosphere indoors is great, the pub is quite fun and can sometimes be high spirited, however the restaurant is a little separated and it doesn’t affect the dining experience in anyway. - the service provided is just second to none, everyone is so friendly, so helpful, and for me, this is the service to beat. I had a table of 4 booked and in the words of my family, “why can’t everyone just do service like this?”. Truly exceptional. - to top it off, the food is just outstanding. The steak is incredible! I was lucky enough to come here in January 2023 and it was so exceptional that I decided to take family in December of 2023. I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the hype I’d created for it, but it absolutely exceeded it. I wanted to stay here actually but unsurprisingly, it was fully booked for months! 10/10, couldn’t recommend this place enough.More

We were staying overnight in the hotel & 6 of us had the most delicious dinner. We tried the terrine, hummus, soufflé, chicken wings & Cullen skink to start & they were all delicious. We then followed with the chicken burger, beef & ale pie,...rib eye steak & fish & chips. Wow, what delicious food. Service was superb & wines were delicious. Sipping drinks in the cosy bar before & after dinner in front of the log burner was was so comfy. Breakfast in the morning was delicious too - a more than decent selection which included crepes with bacon & maple syrup, eggs Benedict, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs & any variation of their full English. Delightful, cheery service too.More

We were on a short break in Perthshire and had an awesome dinner in the restaurant. My steak was cooked to order [perfection] and the entire visit to this Inn was excellent. Staff friendly and informative and good selection of beers/whiskies. Really good value and...a definite return visit is on the cards. Excellent outlook to the River Tay.More

Hotel rooms untested but residents do have restaurant booking preference. It is a quiet spot unless canoe training is taking place on the river immediately in front of the restaurant/hotel.
