The Talbot was freezing cold,the cutlery was dirty and sticky. Lime and soda must have had a passing glance at the lime! Liver pate was ok but toast was cold. Apple pie was heated in microwave so pastry was a little soggy. Husbands jumbo scampi was good. Personally wouldn't go back in a hurry.

They had double booked us.That was sorted. On the day very slow service. Orders were taken 3 times for drinks but they never brought any back. Main meal just... More
