I came to the Talbot a few weeks ago to eat in the restaurant, they accommodated 9 and a toddler. The food was fantastic, lovely upmarket, yet still relaxed atmosphere and great service. My partner and I came back a week later and had a bar snack in the bar area- it’s great how they have both a classic feeling village pub and restaurant in one. The pub food was gorgeous, great live music and friendly staff. We have just moved to the area and know we’ll be spending lots of time here!

I've been passed this many times but never popped in. I was delighted to find the food superb; I had the Shoulder of Lamb, which was beautifully cooked and presented. My girlfriend had the soup of the day, which was equally joyous. Even the Bread for the start of the meal was superb. Fabulous service and prices pretty reasonable! Highly Recommended.

We visited here for Sunday lunch yesterday after finding it by accident looking for a roast.

We skipped starters and ordered the beef roast with Cauliflower cheese, stuffing and pigs in blankets.

The portions are enormous (that isn’t a complaint!) the beef was succulent, the potatoes well seasoned and just the right level of crispy and the sides complimented the main well.

Two mains, three sides and drinks were under £60 which I was gobsmacked at as I really expected to pay more for the amount of food.

Great job overall and a nice way to end the weekend.

I attended an event at The Talbot and had never experienced the food previously but looking at reviews now it all makes sense.

Great flavoured simple buffet lunch with plenty of variety and catering for different dietary requirements.

Will try day to day food some time in the future.
