Went there on Saturday and even tho they were busy the service was friendly and they couldn't do enough for you. There was a wait but to be expected when place is busy. Definitely go again

Did not have the first meal I wanted so had to order an alternative. Do not sell any cider on the meal deals. Can only buy soft drinks in pints no halfs.

called in after driving down before we checked into hotel, a lovely meal for the price which are very reasonable. Nice barmaid who was very polite and the pub was very busy.Does seem to be short staffed this is probably due to costs than bad management but everyone was working hard, waited an average 20mins for meal

Service bad, food cold and just overall rubbish.I ordered sides which never turned up. The steak was full of fat and very chewy. There is nothing good about this place apart from the decor. ...........

Laughable! Once again the Talbot has let us down! Once we arrive the tables weren't in place as reserved which can be forgiven but they then proceed to tell us that their menu is out of date by 2 weeks! Even though they accepted the order they still asked us to change as when we were there! Starters were mixed... More

We met the family for lunch a good but not a large crowd in. The menu was a good standard pub lunch, service was good and friendly and the four meals we ordered were all served at the same time together and we all enjoyed them.
