“Great value, great service”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

We stayed here to visit friends in Uplyme - very glad we found it. Purpose built accommodation behind the beer garden, modern, clean, and comfortable, and Steve was extremely helpful and friendly. The pub closes between 4-6pm, so we had to ring to be let in. Breakfast was also good value and very well done. Would recommend this pub happily.

This lively, well run pub is obviously the hub of the thriving local village community, even so we made to feel very welcome by the owners, staff and locals. Would highly recommend staying here for a long weekend, especially if visiting one of the River Cottage Friday night events.

We were so happy to discover this little gem of a place when we were looking for somewhere to stay in Lyme Regis that didn't break the bank. From our arrival the owner Steve welcomed us warmly and we took advantage of the sunny weather to enjoy a drink in the pretty courtyard at the back which sits inbetween the pub and the lovely little row of rooms each with a private entrance. The room itself had everything we needed for a relaxed and comfortable stay. Steve kindly arranged our taxi transfer to River Cottage which made life even easier and we chatted with the other friendly guests. We actually ended up returning to the pub after our meal and Steve and Wendy played perfect hosts for the remainder of the evening. Breakfast the following morning was just the ticket and helped with our sore heads before we hit the road. We will recommend this place to all our friends & family - get in quickly though as they get booked up!

Straightforward rooms in small block at rear of main pub can be reached directly from car park or down steps from pub. Clean and perfectly adequate for our one night stay for our visit to nearby River Cottage and much cheaper than staying in Lyme itself, yet only a £5 taxi ride away. Ample parking too, good full English breakfast, friendly pub and owners, didn't get to try the pub food as no food on Monday nights. Will stay again if in area.

We stayed for a night in one of the five rooms. It was very good value at £60/night and the landlord and his staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful with arranging taxis etc.The breakfast the next day was also great value for only £5 each. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this pub.

This is a gem of a place.
We have eaten here several times over the last few years as we occasionly stay up the road in the camp site, during summer months for a few days at a time (Hook farm, which is a great place also) We have never had a bad meal, and is good home cooked pub food. This time we did not eat, as we had not planned on staying. We had accomodation booked elsewhere on the beach in Lyme Regis for the weekend, as it was my 40th birthday, and we were having dinner at Hix restaurant and River Cottage, over the weekend. However we managed to get an extra day off work and go a day early, with the prospect of finding somewhere to stay once there. We stopped at the Talbot purely for a drink before going into Lyme to find a place to stay. We were told by a lovely bar lady that they were not doing food that night if we were looking to eat, but they could arrange for an Indian to be delivered or for us to get any take away we wish and eat it in the restaurant. I just happened to ask her if they had any rooms and at what price etc. She said yes and gave me the price (with or without breakfast) and also recommended a few b and b's and hotels in Lyme, as I told her we really fancied something other to eat rather than takeaway. I cheekily asked her if they could knock a tenner off as it was lateish and we wouldnt have breakfast as we were planning on going to the River Cottage canteen for breakfast (which is amazing by the way) She checked with the landlord and he agreed to do a discount of 10 pounds! We had a drink and asked if she minded if we just pop down the road to Lyme to see if a b and b she recommended was free.
We decided in the end to return to the Talbot as what they were asking for one night was such good value and they were so friendly and welcoming, plus being quite tired ourselves.
They gave us a room instantly and we decided to order an Indian to be delivered (Cinnamons in Axminster) The room was lovely, clean and bright with a lovely shower/bathroom and smellies too, tea coffee biscuits etc, in a seperate block to the pub.
We were asked where we would like to eat our food that we had ordered, and a table set up for us. We had a couple of drinks while we waited and then sat down to an incredibly fresh and tasty curry...it was delicious! We are both very foody people and know a good Indian when we have one!
After having a few drinks and a bottle of wine we sat at the bar with the landlord, who was incredibly friendly and gave us info to get to the river cottage.
This place is well worth staying in and cant fault it, its actually nicer being up the road in Uplyme rather than Lyme itself as its away from the crowds and bustle of the seaside town and out in the countryside. We will definately stay again, and will be 100% eating there when we camp next at Hook farm.

We spent one night here - originally going to River Cottage for Valentine's Night dinner - then it burned down so we went to a restaurant in Lyme Regis instead (see separate review for Hix Oyster and Fish House). As mentioned by other reviewers there are 5 rooms - we had number 2. It wasn't large but very clean and comfortable and Mine Host was extremely helpful. The pub was very quiet but served good beer and cider. Breakfast was a hearty full English. We'd go back if we need to stay in the area again.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 5 are on the end of the line (so only one neighbour - not that we noticed any noise from...
