“Excellent value food in an otherwise 'average' pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Have had meals in this 'Fayre & Square' pub twice in the last two weeks - Two Sunday Roasts at £5 each and, on an evening, 2 steaks (5 oz) with chips, peas, mushrooms etc at £5 each. Did not order the inexpensive desserts, but others in the pub did and they looked ok for the price. Both meals were nicely cooked and presented and the staff were polite and helpful. The pub is looking a bit 'tired' these days and could do with a good clean up and makeover, but on the basis of my two recent visits is excellent value if that is what you are looking for.

“Food good but pub not pleasant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We have been here several times for Sunday lunch and the food has always been good and value for money but someone needs to get on top of the cleaning and teach the young staff the importance of clearing and cleaning the tables, watching them remove a plate at a time or take away a few glasses but not return for others or to wipe down the tables was frustrating and it is not nice to sit amongst tables covered in dirty plates and glasses and salt !

“Value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Get what you pay for. Sometimes very good, other times lacking. Tables and menus need cleaning more thoroughly, very sticky.

“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Went to the open mike night at The Talbot yesterday evening and ate while there. This isn't a pub for a special meal if you likw gourmet cooking but for some food for convenience it is just fine and reasonably priced too. I had carribean vegetable curry and was pleasantly surprised. Must add though that the huge pink cakes on display are very off putting but I guess some people must like them.
