Visited many times over the 28 years I have lived in the area. Especially recently both lunchtime and evenings. Lovely food, friendly staff and the new owners have really turned it round! Local beers and well priced food! Keep up the good work!

Been going to the talbot for years but hadn't been in for a while. Great to say it's back to its best proper pub grub at good prices. Will definitely return

I have been a few times in a short space of time, the first time we tried the food from the main menu, was all absolutely beautiful. The second time we tried the 'value' menu, large portions for around £5 per meal, not as good as the main menu but well worth £5, wear elasticated clothing!

Things did not start well - my friend ordered creamy garlic mushrooms when this was brought to the table we could not believe our eyes as we had never encountered battle ship grey food before!

This place is what you think of when you want to go to a traditional pub. Its a comfy pub, with lots of space. Very nice home cooked food all served with a smile. My husband had the steak pie, the meat was very tender and the crust buttery and crisp with lovely home chips. I had a crab salad... More

We've got a lot of gravy lovers, but if your preference is on the side, just ask at the bar when you order and we'll be more than happy to bring a gravy boat on the side. We... More
