We were staying with friends who live locally. They booked a table to save cab fares. I would've rather travelled further, paid for a cab both ways & had a decent meal! As soon as we walked in it smelled of stale chip fat. Waited...More

Great food here, plenty of parking, We found the decore a little dark and dusty, lots of old fashioned style tables and chairs. It's atmospheric I suppose , found it a little expensive for pub grub, Food well presented and the service was good.

There are good signs when you visit a pub or restaurant. The First is a large car park slowly filling, the second is a number of staff iready to assist or serve rather than hiding behind the doors. The Talisman passed both tests, and was...More
