The Tayberry set for relaunch in February

Chef proprietor Adam Newth has a new site for his restaurant The Tayberry. It will re-open on the site of the former Tipsy Goat in Dundee this February.

Newth stepped away from his Broughty Ferry restaurant, of the same name last year, and concentrated on his personal chef business while  former Masterchef winner Jamie Scott took on the business and opened a restaurant called Sandbanks Brasserie.


Now The Tayberry is set to re-emerge at 11 Tay Square at a site owned by Jimmy Marr -which was originally a fine dining restaurant called The Playwright before Marr opened the Tipsy Goat which was more of a pub.  The latter closed just before the New Year and all the staff were deployed at Marr’s other venues.

Adam Newth told DRAM, “I’m delighted to be re-opening but it was nice to have a break.  The plan is to have a soft opening on the 7th February and run for a week before we hit the busy Valentine’s period. The good news is that customers will see some familiar faces because a lot of the old Tayberry team is coming back.

“It will be a similar sort of food concept with similar style dishes but this time we will offer a pre-theatre menu which will be reasonably priced because of the restaurants location near the theatre.”

He continues, “We will still have our normal offering – although I have adapted our six course tasting menu to allow customers to have more of a choice. It won’t be a set menu instead they will be able to choose their dishes. Previously we found that a set menu alienated some customers. But we will also add in complimentary sides like canapés and pre-dessert palate cleansers which will make the tasting menu feel more special.

“Of course we will also be serving lunches and A la carte.

“Another string to our bow will be the fact that we will keep dong private work, which we will be offering through the Tayberry. I have been doing this for the last year and it has proved to be very successful.”
