Lovely friendy establishment. Visited with my godmother for a catch up and ate a lot more than I intended to. The scampi was perfect. I have to say probably the best I have tasted. Lovely lunchtime meal.

Arrived in ample time for the meal and we were greeted by a very pleasant barman. We were given menus and a short while later shown to our table. The restaurant area was very nice and the waitress took our order . A little while later she returned with some complimentary granary bread and butter, only to be instantly followed by the starters......a little annoying . The starters of pigeon and scallops were delicious . When the waitress removed the dishes. we were asked if we wanted the bread leaving, having answered yes , she promptly removed all of the cutlery ( nothing to butter the bread with or forks for the main course ) . This was soon rectified , but again almost immediately the main course arrived ( time to digest the starter would of been nice ) . The main of lamb rump was again delicious and nicely presented . We finished the meal with raspberry cheesecake and chocolate brownie , they rounded off a very pleasant meal . All in all a beautiful meal, just needs the waitresses to concentrate a little more and not rush the courses . I would still return .

Yesterday we took a drive out & stopped off in Bishopton for a drink, we browsed the menu and were tempted by the lovely choices & different types of food available. It was 2pm so we thought we had missed lunch, however the very friendly barman said it was not a problem & we were welcome to Oder lunch. So pleased we did creamy garlic mushroom starter, hot seafood platter both were Devine, also very nice wine to boot. We were so pleased we stumbled across this smart elegant pub with a tranquil atmosphere, really good service too needless to say we will be back soon.

Living not far from here and having never been today we popped in for lunch. Had a two course meal off a set menu and both courses were absolutely gorgeous. The desserts looked great but we were to full to try and eat one, but we will definitely save space for them next time! Couldn't fault it, from great food to great service and will be back!

Have eaten at The Talbot for many occasions and it is without doubt my favourite place to eat.
The family owners are obviously passionate about what they do and this shows in the service you receive from start to finish. The food is consistently fantastic....I love this place and will be back soon!
