We were staying in Skelwith Bridge for a week and this was the nearest pub/hotel. We appreciate good quality food and are quite prepared to travel for a good meal which was our intention. We ate in the cottage on our first night and called into the bar for a drink. We were extremely impressed with the warm and friendly welcome that we received from the bartender. They had a selection of real ales and the bar was full of people eating bar snacks so we decided to give it a go the following night. We were not disappointed so ate in The Talbot Bar for 4 nights out of 7. Between us we tried quite a few things on the menu with only 1 regret. One of my favourite meals is liver & onions with mash which was on the special board on the first night when we called in for a drink having already eaten. Unfortunately they sold the last portion just before I ordered the following night and it did not reappear during our 4 visits. It's not fine dining but it's damn good pub grub at a reasonable price, good real ales and a pleasant friendly atmosphere.
