tayside hotel aug 08002_edited ver2Located just 5 miles north of the city of Perth and within a few minutes from some of the best fishing beats on the River Tay, the Tayside Hotel in Stanley is the perfect base for fishermen to relax and enjoy good food and drink after an enjoyable day spent on the river or riverbank.

The hotel’s Fisherman’s Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a good meal and chat with friends about the successes of the day or maybe reminisce about the ‘one that got away’. For those who prefer the more informal atmosphere of the Public Bar there is also the opportunity to play darts or pool or watch live sports.

The Tayside hotel remains a firm favourite for many fishermen, who return to sample its hospitality year after year. In 2013 the hotel is offering special rates to guests quoting ‘Fishpal e-mail’.
