Initially the service was great and food ok however we were above the bar and there was a staff night out, loud music until 2am - not great. The first breakfast was plentiful however bacon burnt to a crisp. Requested not well done the next morning and got the fatty, cut offs, not rashers of bacon. Some plus points in... More

I stayed here through work as a last minute choice. I had a fairly decent nights sleep, but I probably wouldn't stay again. Although it has lots of character, it just felt tired. The corridors looked like something out of a scary movie, The room was at an angle with one side of the bed supported on a 2x4 plank.... More

Stayed two nights to attend a 40th wedding anniversary function hosted by The Talbot. What a wonderful gem it is. Without doubt would recommend and would love to go back. I agree with former comment - if a premier inn is your thing - don't go near this, it will be wasted on you. If however you enjoy a relaxed... More

The Talbot is the best of old world pub/restaurants without being stuffy. I visit often for a quiet drink, and to be honest the beers brewed on site cannot be beaten, and starting at £2.80 for a terrific pint are great value. We took the family which includes three extremely noisy little girls, and a well behaved cavapoo for lunch.... More

The pub served its own beer - this, that and t'other which our beer drinkers found entirely acceptable. They also went well with the home cooked food which was sourced from their kitchen garden (pigs are also kept offering prize winning sausages at large, tasty breakfasts) bedrooms were on the small side but offered clean comfortable accommodation and the home...

Charm? It is an old inn but there is nothing charming about squishy beds, substandard covers, narrow staircases and worst of all appalling noise from bar below. In the middle of nowhere but a noisy uncomfortable experience. Never ever again!

Me and my friends visited her for lunch and it was excellent, service was great, lovely gardens to sit out in the sun right by the river side. Food was good but a tad expensive. The service was also good and we were asked if we wanted more food or drinks

Arranged to meet friends here for lunch and left very disappointed. After taking an age to get our order taken by a single uninterested bar person I should have known what to expect. The food when it arrived was average at best with incredibly small portions and the order was incomplete. The waitress couldn't care less and eventually brought out... More
