Really enjoyed our meal at the Talbot inn. I ordered fish chips and mushy peas and was shocked when it arrives, the portion sizes are huge. The staff were friendly and there's a good selection of real ales. It's nicely decorated and has a cosy feel. Will definitely return, but will not have anything to eat all day before so... More

Have called into this pub for drinks a number of times (good real ales) and have always heard good things about food. Called in on Thursday night which is steak night. Order 2 steaks and 2 pies for £41, and the food didn't disappoint. Friendly service, good sized portions and good quality food.

I've lived locally to the Talbot for over a year now and I've heard so many rave reviews from so many people. Well my mother in law decided to take me down for the first time with my nephew recently. I have to say the decor is lovely, very modern pub feel and the service was friendly. But the food... More

Talbot is a nice local pub, but the food is just average like any other pub. Nice for last minute plans and a nice atmosphere too.

We visited here as a birthday treat for my partner after all the good things I'd heard and I do feel it was a little overrated. The staff were brilliant and were very attentive and the place it's self has a lovely warm atmosphere and is well decorated and modern. The food to me did seem a little mediocre and... More

Not eaten in restaurant yet but the bar meals are excellent, Tuesday's £6 menu is a bargain. Fabulous pub had a makeover recently and serves local hand pull from the Two Roses brewery in Darton.
