Once again my wife and I have had another superb Christmas Jazz weekend at the Talbot Hotel. We cannot praise Gilbert, Julie and their fabulous staff enough for the service and efficiency they show, and also the hard work they put in to making these events so special. The accommodation is very comfortable, the food is second to none, and... More

Four friends and I were fortunate to get a table for this lunch time Christmas Event, where over 70 people had paid £12 per head. Shown to our table, we had time to take in the ambiance, which was decorated in a traditional way for the festive season. We had the most delicious cream of vegetable soup served piping hot... More

A wonderful and historic English inn. Gilbert, Julie and their kids could not have been more warm and welcoming. They went above and beyond to provide me with a truly first class English experience. I was sort of stranded in the UK for a few days and they invited me to come up and stay at Talbot. They took the... More

Every aspect of the day was nothing more than perfect, from the beautifully decorated room & tables in our chosen colour scheme to the excellently presented & delcious three course meal. The evening buffet was outstanding there was an endless choice of both hot & cold foods,... More
