We went out for a treat last Sunday and booked a table at the Restaurant of The Talbot Inn. What a lovely looking historical building. The owners have worked very hard to the outside and it looks so inviting. The atmosphere inside was welcoming and all the staff were cheerful and friendly. One gets the feeling that they all enjoy...

Price if the food and drink was fine and will try again in the future, however the night time menu does look very expensive fir the... More

We have visited the Talbot regularly over the last few years but more so since it's change in ownership. David and Leah have done a brilliant job in updating the Talbot without taking away any of it's character and appeal. Food is all locally sourced and the source advertised. The food served is consistently good and waiting time is kept... More

Visited today for Sunday lunch, bar area was fairly busy but we got a table without any problems. All ordered Sunday lunch which arrived within a reasonable amount of time. Both beef and slow roasted lamb were tender and delicious. The vegetables were fresh, well cooked and plentiful. The dessert menu proved to good to miss and choices were enjoyed... More

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.
