Spent a lovely morning looking around the shops in stow ... Stopped at the talbot for lunch after seeing their pie of the day advertised outside ... Walked in and the foyer smelled a bit of toilets ... But we continued onto the bar which looked pretty newly decorated Ordered two chicken and bacon pies and 2 drinks , cost... More

Beautiful old traditional pub, with an open fireplace. Quality food, good selection of beers and friendly attentive staff. Warm and cosy atmosphere, the Sunday roast, and then treacle pudding is a must!! 5 stars from me

I've had a few beers in here on several occasions recently and one meal, so far. The service was brilliant and they have a good respect for pulling decent pints. The food was reasonably priced and very tasty, with decent sized portions too. The new owners are on hand and very friendly and the clientele are local people (always a... More

Much improved pub after the refurbishment. A warm and welcoming pub which did a excellent steak and kidney pie 👍

There are so many pubs to choose from in Stow but we loved the Talbot. There is a great selection of food and drink and the staff were attentive and friendly. I had locally-sourced sausage and mash which was yummy!

The sausage & mash are currently my favourite too. Just right for these chilly days. Glad you enjoyed and thank you for your positive review. More

A freindly welcome and good service. Local pork chop and sausages, both dishes freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Good value in a pleasant atmosphere. Would recommend

Excellent choice of well-kept Wadworth's beers. Good pub grub at sensible prices, unlike the rest of the Stow pubs which are overpriced on the food. Very welcoming licensees and staff. Main course was so generous we couldn't manage a pud! Please ignore the review that says not improved. It's an old building and nothing can be done about the upstairs... More

Thank you for your review. It is very much appreciated. We take a great deal of pride in our beers. Equally so, our food. You are, however, unfortunately incorrect when you say we have disabled facilities on the ground floor. Installing toilets downstairs was very problematic and not a possibility during the refurbishment. That being said, I hope this doesn't... More

We went here for lunch and we're just passing and decided to give it a go as it was a cold day and they had a real fire. The staff were very welcoming and warm too. Food wise, good pub grub. I had a beef and ale pie with real suet pastry! It was really tasty. All in all a... More

This pub is right in the middle of Stowe. Its had a makeover and we found it to be clean, welcoming, with good food and an excellent range of beers. Nice for a meal or just hanging out, enjoying your drink.

Had a fantastic Sunday roast, we came into the Talbot with about an hour before food service was finishing, there was plenty still on the menu to choose from. The food came very quickly, and the food was hot. I chose the pork and my husband chose the beef. The food was tasty and the plate was not over filled.... More

Thanks for your wonderful review. Our Sunday roasts are proving very popular. Very glad you enjoyed yours. Lemon Posett is the perfect finale to roast pork. Come back soon and see what we're adding to our Christmas menu. Cheers. More
