Standard pub food

Went here one weekend, as we felt like a night off cooking. Had a drink whilst waiting for our food. Mine came out ok, but my partner's was stone cold. Manager was very helpful and so on, but won't be going back.

A change of Management can sometimes make a world of difference! As new manager took over a couple of months ago, service & the quality of the food have certainly improved. Pub interior is still looking tired & could do with a makeover, but the menu also has changed, this is the third time I've been in for a meal,... More

I have confidently returned to the tablot time and time again hoping to recieve a better experience than the last visit. I think it is about time I gave up and realised this place is a bit of a let down.

I went hear after a recommendation for cheap food and big portions (I should have known better after being told this!) Put it this way, you pay for what you get... a low quality microwave meal! Not worth a penny and would not return as such terrible food.

Booked for Christmas lunch about a month ago, paid deposit on line, it was for 1.30pm. Went in to pay for remainder where the manager took the money, clipped the receipt to the menus and put it in a a red book, presumably for xmas. 4-5 days before the big day, we get an e-mail to say they had lost...

Havent been here for a while, but sorry to say it wasnt a nice visit. The food took ages to arrive and was on the substandard side. Bordering on cold. I hope they sort things out and id be glad to revisit and give a mpre positive review.

Most of the reviews for this pub are very poor, so thought I would redress the balance. I booked a table on line for 1:30 Sunday, my reservation was ready on arrival, bar staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. My wife wanted a vegetarian option that had just run out, but a quick word with chef rustled up another... More

We hadn't been to this pub for some time and heard that it had improved greatly since our last visit, about a year ago. However, if anything it was worse - the furniture needs either updating or getting a good clean, two of the doors in the ladies toilet wouldn't lock, the hand dryer didn't work and in the bar...

Part of a large chain, went to one up north, good value & enjoyed it! Went to this one 2 months ago with the family & it was mostly enjoyable. However went back 2 weeks ago, how things can change! distinctly average but cheap! will try again before Xmas to see if a change of management had made any difference!

We visited The Talbot yesterday evening primarily to listen to the musicians that were there playing blues music. The music was great but the food not good at all. The only vegetarian option on the menu was the veggie burrito. It consisted of a rock hard tortilla wrap around a couple of beans and rock hard unidentifiable vegetable matter (I... More
