Even on arrival we were given a warm welcome! The food was exceptional, hot and tasty! I highly recommend the Gammon and the pint of Tiger ale was amazing! Truly a great place to visit/eat and relax, and would recommend it to anyone. Polite and friendly staff and an amazing decor. How pubs should be!

Seeking out a lunch venue we first looked in on the Fox; but at " one course for £8.50" ( we only wanted soup or a sandwich) we thought this exhorbitant and went on to the Talbot instead, a classic pub with no pretensions to the "gastro trade". We both ordered hot pork sandwiches and an order of chips. The... More

This atmospheric pub in the heart of Much Wenlock in Shropshire, is an excellent place for a really good pub lunch. Friendly staff and good, well cooked food. And the very best Ploughman's lunch we have enjoyed in a long while. Highly recommended if you are visiting this delightful village.

We received a warm welcome and a place by the fire on a very cold night. Food and service were excellent and good value for money. Friendly locals who filled us in about the history of the area. Will be back Denise and Simon Kane

We decided to visit the Talbot for lunch and we were not disappointed. The pub is very traditional with black and white beams, has a lovely warm atmosphere and real ales. I had fish and chips, my daughter had the chilli and my son had Shropshire chicken. All arrived well presented, piping hot and were delicious, the portions were very... More

We decided to book ahead on a Saturday evening in November after researching places to eat. We were visiting for the weekend so relied on trip advisor for recommendations of places to eat. While it wasn't our first choice I can honestly say we had a lovely evening and would highly recommend. The waiter/barman who took are booking was possibly... More

We had supper at the Talbot having surveyed all of the pubs in Much Wenlock! The Talbot is, in our opinion, the most traditional (believed original build in 14th Century), the friendliest locals and most pleasant helpful staff. We were not disappointed. My wife had fish and chips, I had the Pie of the Day,Pork with Leek. Both were well... More
