Good food, local real ale and lovely staff, what's not to like!

I visited the Talbot with a group of friends for Sunday lunch, I had heard the food was good and we weren't disappointed. I would have preferred more sauce on my prawn cocktail starter but it's a small point. Quite a few of us had the lamb, the portion sizes were large and the meat, Yorkshire... read more

Been coming here many years. Great pub, food is ok, if you eat upstairs in the restaurant it's a quality treat for the family.

We recently went to the Talbot with 15 friends and family to celebrate a Birthday. Due to the limited selection on the menu, three of our group asked if they could pick something from the bar menu. They were told "no, we don't do that", by who I assume was the Head Waitress. We asked why, as they were still... More

The broccoli and cauliflower were rock hard could hardly cut through it. The chicken and sauce were bland as bland come and... More

We were given the menu which only had a small selection on it, a couple of our party asked if they could order for the bar menu as they didn't fancy anything from the restaurants menu. "NO" was the response from the... More

Four of us visited the Talbot yesterday tea time for the £5.00 menu. It was excellent value the food was very good but most of all the atmosphere was exceptional. The bar area was packed and all the tables outside were taken. A lovely find in a lovely village. Looking forward to trying the restaurant on an evening.
