We decided to visit the The Talbot based on the claim of "The Best Roast Lunch" in the Stow on the Wold. Unfortunately this claim can only be valid if they're the only establishment serving lunch on a Sunday. My main issue with the lunch is that at least 40%, of the one slice of beef that was served, consisted... More

My girlfriend and I stopped off for a quick lunch. We both ordered sandwiches. Both absolutely fantasticly fresh and a cut above most pub lunches I've experienced.

Our evening meal in the Talbot was sensational. Fresh local produce cooked to perfection and served with a smile. Definitely Michelin star quality.

After dining at the Bell the previous night, where we had some brilliant food, we went into the Talbot not expecting to be so lucky a second time. We were so wrong. This was possible the best meal we had ever had out. After a bread/oil starter, the main courses were unusually served on wooded boards, but wow, superb, both... More

We stopped for a late lunch and waited for quite a while in the outdoor plaza with no luck. I went in and retrieved a menu from a wait staff, but still no one came out to take our order. We eventually moved indoors to get our drinks and our lunch orders were taken. I am so glad we persisted... More

The Talbot has an unusual menu and a pleasant, informal ambience -- we were there about 7 p.m. on a Friday and the place wan't too busy (the waitress said it picks up at 9 p.m.), although there was a two-deep crowd at the bar, which is a part of the main dining room rather than separate, as is more...

The Talbot has changed hands since our last visit and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and very well presented. Will look forward to a repeat visit when we are back in the area.

My wife and I visited The Talbot twice on Saturday, 20 June 2015. In the afternoon we enjoyed a beer and the atmosphere; and in the evening we returned for dinner. It was not ordinary pub fare, it was exceptional – well prepared by the chefs, and very well served by the attentive bar staff. Two starters for me –... More
