We were impressed by the online restaurant menu so asked for a table upstairs. We were seated straight away by a lovely server who was able to recommend a local beer to accompany the meal. The "lamb Henry" was lovely and the speciality potatoes chorizo band paprika were an excellent accompaniment. Generous portions were great value, unfortunately no room for... More

A lovely traditional but second to none, English pub serving fabulous food with excellent service. The upstairs restaurant is cosy but not cramped. Plenty of space around each table created a relaxing atmosphere. The food is delicious, well presented and plentiful. Children had their own menu covering the classic favourites which were home made with the same pride that was... More

I came here with others and knew it was a great find. I have to admit that due to myself having flu I had no sense of taste at all, so it would be unfair to comment on the taste of the food, though the others all really enjoyed there meals. The restaurant upstairs looks great, the tables set out... More

Came here for a visit to the restaurant upstairs and thought highly of this place. There's a great atmosphere in the bar downstairs with friendly staff, good beers and a lovely, cosy restaurant upstairs. I have to admit though that I can't at all comment on the taste of the food because I had flu and therefore couldn't taste anything,... More

Me and the wife eat at the Talbot quite regular, the bar food is just as delicious as upstairs in the beautiful restaurant, excellent presentation excellent value and excellent tasting, and wonderful friendly staff, £5 meals are far better than others at double and even treble the price. A good selection of beers, wines and spirits which are very competitive... More

After moving from the area, we made a special trip back to this old favourite. It was great to see that the amazing food and brill service was still on offer. Lovely Barnsley hospitality and service with a smile. Thank you

I've been meaning to eat here after seeing all their positive reviews, so visited on a Wednesday lunchtime. Warm welcome from the lady behind the bar. Pub was pretty quiet, but not unusual in mid week. Ordered their Haddock & chips, which came with mushy peas. Good quality fish, proper homemade chips & generous portion. They do Sunday Roast's for... More
