I have just returned from Cuba and had to arrange to meet my son and family to get our chocolate Labrador back as they had kindly looked after him, normally, when we have the Grand kids at half terms we meet "half way" at the M40 services, costly, not very inviting. I wanted to treat them to a nice meal as a thank you. As always, I go through Tripadvisor to get the low down on pubs in the area, this time I needed a dog friendly one. I spent well over an hour last night trying to find a place that had good reviews, in the end I called my son and asked him to look, he found the Talbot and I called, spoke to a polite young lady who said dogs were allowed in the bar area and there was a large table for us to use. We arrived and although the area was badly flooded were pleased to see the nice setting the Pub is in, make sure you have the 5p for the toll bridge if you come from the south,!!
We ordered a variety of dishes from the menu and specials board, all were served hot, plentiful by Ron the landlord who was attentive throughout, no complaints at all from any of the six who ate, two of us had the treacle pudding and it was very very nice and again, plentiful.
When we came to pay, Stacey was apologetic about the delay with the food, saying lots of people had ordered at the same time, we hadn't noticed a delay, but it shows the standard of care and attention at the Talbot. The cost for our visit including 3 coffees, a cider and 2 cokes was just under £80, a very fair price especially when you see the silly prices of the small portion places nearer to Oxford. We shall for sure make this our regular meeting place on future meet ups.
