Perthshire-born Graeme Pallister is chef patron of 63 Tay Street. Graeme and his small team are passionate about using the best quality ingredients from local suppliers with the greatest care and attention going into every dish prepared.

Graeme trained at Kinloch House Hotel in the mid-90s and has since worked at Longueville Manor in Jersey, The Angel in Sussex, Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles and Let’s Eat Perth where he was head chef for 2 years before opening 63 Tay Street in 2007. Graeme is also executive chef at Parklands Hotel, Perth.

Although still involved in the Parklands Hotel, Graeme's focus since 2007 has been on developing 63 Tay Street as his signature restaurant using the guidelines of LOCAL - HONEST - SIMPLE.

Graeme was crowned Chef of the Year at the Catering in Scotland Awards 2013, is a Masterchef of Great Britain and a member of the UK Slow Food Chef Alliance of which he is a enthusiastic supporter hosting bi-monthly Slow Food suppers at the restaurant.

Graeme’s mantra is Local, Honest, Simple and he launched a personal blog of the same name in 2012 as a platform to share recipes and views on a wide range of topics from ingredients to hospitality.
