I have always had a special place in my heart for the Talbot having worked there as a teenager, and it has remained one of my most favourite restaurants throughout the years. We have had two major family events at the Talbot, our Wedding breakfast and evening reception and also my daughter's Christening. I can honestly not fault a single meal/over night stay/drink I have had here and would recommend to all. The guests at our wedding said both the sit down meal (a 3 course meal from a menu of 4 choices each course), was the best food they had tried. That along with the hot evening buffet were the talk of all the guests, even two years on!
The rooms in the hotel are beautifully finished with a "three bears" type feel to the chunky wooden furniture, with stunning bathroom en suites. The restaurant is rustic, with original Italian music, candle lit tables and in Winter a large central open fire.
The menu is all freshly prepared, and the steak and fish selection really can't be beaten anywhere locally.
I am looking forward to them opening on lunchtimes, as it will be my first choice for a summer lunch by the river.
The Talbot really is a special place and I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.
