Visited in January for a romantic and long weekend. Stayed before we love this inn and this part of the world.
Room was clean and still looking smart and crisp from the refurbs over a year ago. Love the corridors upstairs, the floors are older than the USA. You feel like your on a ship at sea, with a rolling deck, till your feet get used to them, magical.!!
Food was good, if a little pricey, but there were offers for residents, which made a quality meal very good value. The breakfasts were good, almost the best i have ever had. And the service was from kind and considerate staff.
I like the fact that i see the chefs buy some of their produce from the quality green grocers next door.
Midday a bowl of soup, or the bar menu was always welcoming, and hit the spot. The Talbot is fairly central to the town for many other, and varied great eateries. The beer here was excellent and doing frequent sampling through the spring still is.. Henry's and 6X are fabulous - well kept. Other local ciders and beer.
Step down off the pavement into the Bar, it is a jewel. You'll be entertained by your eyes and your ears. And you'll rub shoulders with them all. The bar manager is a bit eccentric, like a one man show - with beer.!! Heard he may have left..
The bar buzzes in the evening, and it's one of the nicest and friendliest bars in town, open fire, kind people, great ambiance, great welcome. Parking during the day is abit of a pain, but small price to pay for such a fulfilling stay.
I like this town, and i enjoy my frequent visits to this inn, can't recommend this place enough. Enjoy.
