“Lovely Food”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

When out for a meal with an old friend to the Talbot in Bishopton. The staff very friendly and helpful and the meal was first class, this is the second time that i have been and would go again. We went for about 6.30 because we did not book.but got a table and drinks, ordered our food with advice from the waitress. Warm bread came and not long after came our food, it was lovely and fresh and hot, the manger came over and asked if everything was alright. So we had dessert to finish off. Would go back again.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We were looking for a quiet location for a birthday celebration and from reviews the Talbot seemed to fit our requirements. We were not disappointed. The service was good - attentive but not intrusive. Neither of us like oversize portions and the fixed price two or three course menu suited us well. The food was excellent and we left left determined to make another visit.

“Fantastic Food!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

My husband and i went here last night for his Birthday. It was a lovely place to go and eat. We arrived early and were given the menu to look at while we had a drink. We were then taken to our table and asked if we would like more drinks while our food was being prepared. A basket of freshly baked bread was given to us while we were waiting.
We had a 3 course meal which was £19.95 each. the food was gorgeous, well presented and one of the best meals we have tasted in a while. The blonde haired lady who served us was really friendly and made us feel really welcome.
We left feeling happy and very full.
We will definitely be going back soon to try something else off the menu.
Thanks for a lovely night here. Top place to eat!

“Very nice little pub”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

The talbot is one of those places I forget about but whenever we go the food is lovely.

It's been a long time since we last attended but the pub is always clean, modern and staff helpful.

My partner is gluten free and they couldn't do enough to make sure everything was ok for. Very nice touch and put our minds at ease.

My food let it down (fish cakes to start) I wanted duck but they had sold out which is why I think I didn't enjoy it, the main was a parmo I have moved away so don't really have these anymore and I wish I never had it. The chicken was moist but the cheese was too much. However everyone else enjoyed and complemented there food. So I will only put it down to my awkwardness.

The food was kind of slow between courses however we enjoyed this as it felt we weren't being rushed out.

All in all I highly recommend the talbot.

Before 8pm Monday-Friday 2 courses £16.95

If your looking for some nice food , friendly staff and good wine then you can't go wrong with the Talbot
