This is our local pub, its an excellent place for a bar meal or lovely restaurant upstairs. We recently called in for Sunday lunch, I had turkey and my husband the roast beef. It was piping hot, plenty of meat with a yorkshire pud and nicely cooked veg in a separate dish. We didnt have room for a pudding but... More

Room for disabled parking good but limited. Wheelchair access is not very good. As a person with a physical disability who doesn't have to rely on a wheelchair, I was able to walk up and down the steps at the back entrance. The staff were friendly and helpful on arrival. We were able to take a seat and just order... More

Four of us plus 2 German Shepherds called in for Sunday lunch on the 11th. We were made very welcome and ate in the bar area. The food was very very good and there was lots of it and all at a very reasonable price. £36.00 for 4 meals and drinks. The locals were friendly and loved the dogs. If... More

This has recently become our ‘local’ and we visit maybe once or twice a week. There is a nice atmosphere and has always been relatively busy. There is a wide range of ‘real ales’ is that is your thing. Ive only eaten once and ordered a cheeseburger, the portion was massive and was very very nice. All the other food... More

Welcome to the area! We are pleased to have more local patrons who love and support their village pub! We will soon be adding 2 craft beer lines to the bar as well, so if you are a real ale fan, I'm sure you might give these a try too. Kind regards, Leah More

This was our first visit to the Talbot Inn and it was a very nice experience. We both ordered the steak and ale pie, one with the mushy pea’s option and the other with the vegetable option. Both were large portions and no skimping on the meat here. The accompanying fresh tasting carrots, broccoli and cauliflower and homemade chips all... More

Sat upstairs in the restaurant, pub is nice also but the restaurant just has a nicer feeling for eating as a couple in my opinion. Went for the Sunday lunch roast but there was other main courses that took my fancy like the steak and ale pie. I had soup to start and my partner had the prawn salad, we... More

Visited the Talbot Inn today for a Christmas meal with work colleagues. Really nice place. Plenty of room at a large table upstairs for the 8 of us.

Hello, Thank you for your very kind review following your visit over Christmas. Point taken on the beef, we generally tend to slice the beef quite thickly but I do see how this can present a 'cutting' issue, any of the staff are happy to provide a steak knife should you require one next time. We do take pride in... More
