Had a lovely meal here last weekend. The pub has recently been refurbished and now offers a lovely environment to enjoy a relaxing evening with friends/family. The new owners/staff are very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Having read recent reviews, I had concerns, but to my delight, I can honestly say that the food on offer was excellent...

Booked a table for four about a week ahead of our visit. On arrival we were shown our table and told that there was a large table in and so things would be a bit slow. No problem with that, but I do wish restaurants would let you know when you book so that you can decide whether to visit... More

5 of us chose a sharing platter for lunch which was great value. Prawns, duck, rare beef, pate and 3 types of cheeses with lots of lovely bread, home made pickles and chutney. Service was friendly and efficient and quick. we will go back.

After a recent refurbishment The Talbot is looking fantastic and has a lovely cosy feel to it. We dropped in on the off chance of a table for two on a Saturday night.

This is a great little pub with a homely atmosphere and well-sized pub classics (and more) at decent prices. Well worth a visit if you're passing through Ruyton XI Towns and feeling the pangs of hunger!

The previous review made me doubt my decision but decided to have a steak anyway. And am I so glad that I went for my own decision. Both our tuna and rib eye steaks were cooked too perfection. Will definitely be visiting again soon. Please make your own mind up but it wells worth it
