My old local

On a visit back home to UK after 12 years overseas, saddened by the blight of chain pubs which now includes my old local The Talbot. I'm sure the food is ok, but this used to be a nice, warm local. Not any more. Bar service very average and lacking any character

Service was good but food was terrible, I've had better ready meals. The stuffing was solid and the meat looked cheap.

It’s a long time since we’ve been to a restaurant in this chain, and it will be considerably longer before we go again. Apart from the beer, this establishment has nothing to commend it. The interior is so tatty it looks almost derelict. The service is so slow you have to get up and search for a waiter. The portions... More

I took my daughter in law and two young grand children there for lunch, never again, we had to wait for our drinks, then an hour for the food and then when it adventurally arrived it was awful. The staff not at all helpful, Very disappointing.

We ordered our food and then over an hour later our mains come out when we hadn't even received our starters. Food could be impropved for example the new yorker chicken didnt have much sauce.

Food was nice, server was attractive but they took ages to come and take my bill even though I was stood up frantically waving a handful of cash in the air. I accidentally fell off a table and a woman screamed, but they still didn't come! Will never return

This pub used to do decent food at a decent price and was a regular haunt of ours for cheap and cheerful get togethers. I've no idea what's happened to this place but the food is disgusting. My food was oozing with grease so much I felt sick and left it. I also ordered a bottle of prosecco which was... More

This place is appalling. No staff. New waitress couldn't blame her. Ipad wasn't working so manager took order manually. When waitress show us to table no menu. Drinks didn't arrive. Food was okay.

Food and meal size brilliant. The service was very efficient and not long to wait after ordering before the meal put in front of you.
