We stopped for lunch at The Old Talbot on the spur of the moment. We were hungry. It turned out to be an excellent moment of happenstance. The bacon and stilton panini took our fancy and what a great lunch we had. The panini were...freshly baked, crunchy and open crumbed, and generously filled with quality ingredients. The chips, among the best I’ve eaten, really, were an unexpected addition and bountiful in number. The simple salad garnish was very good too. The ale on tap we had to drink was also excellent. Add to this attentive friendly service and a reasonable price and you can’t ask for more. Brilliant! You won’t get a better pub lunch.More

Popped in for a bite to eat and drink and wasn't disappointed. We ordered two steak baguettes, one with blue cheese and the other with cheddar. Both came with what turned to be the most gorgeous triple cooked chips and a fresh side salad. The...service was courteous and polite. The food was to dye for. The best Light Bites we'd ever had the pleasure of eating. Highly recommend. We'll be back.More

We tried the evening food for the first time at the weekend, (despite living locally for almost 3 years!) and it was brilliant! Both of us being vegetarians means we are used to the options being tagged on the end of the menu or the...fish option being used as the vegetarian option - however, the menu was bursting with choice! I had the vegetable shepherds pie - i was worried it was just going to be made with fake mince, but there was not a fake mince twilit in sight! It was made with so many lovely vegetables and the most delicious sauce! I ate it so quickly and would have eaten another! My husband had the fish and chips and the fish was incredible! We will return, with family members too, as we were so impressed! Delicious! Thanks!!More

Met clients at this establishment for lunch in the sunshine. Location is awesome, on the actual A5! Service was impeccable. Great attention in the garden with regular requests for drinks etc. The menu was simple, food was cooked to perfection (locally sourced produce). The owners...made the effort to come out and make sure we were happy with everything. A wonderful touch. Pubs like these need to remain open - without our support they will perish. If you are driving on the A1 - look this place up (NN12 7QD) - it will not disappoint. As a regular TA reviewer, I would return here if in the area; with hesitation!More

We stopped at this lovely pub on our way through whilst looking for somewhere to eat. The menu was perfect a mixture between main meals and light bites like sandwiches and baguettes. The food was lovely, staff were very friendly and perfect family environment! Just...a shame we don’t live nearby to visit again soon!More

Visited this pub as a family of 4 for lunch on the eat out to help out scheme. Good value even without the discount. Good quality home cooked food and fab cheeseboard. Only minor negatives was the steak pie was a little fatty and the...apple pie tasted a little odd. Nice friendly staff and nicely decorated inside.More
