Having recently visited the Talbot for a family and friends meal of 30 people I would certainly recommend this as a great place for a party or gathering of any sort. We were all very well looked after by the attentive staff and for such a large party everything came out quickly and as ordered, no mean feat with 20... More

Its great to see this place doing well after its refurb last year. Had a lovely pub meal at lunchtime. Very pleasant atmosphere and good quality food. The hanging baskets look beautiful and really add to the ambience. It cheers the village up no end.

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!

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!

If you're ever at a loss with the club menu though, you can still order from the regular menu or the specials board on these two days. We... More
