As the Talbot is undergoing major renovations on the entire ground floor after flooding earlier in the year, the restaurant and hotel are currently closed until early December respectively. We are serving drinks to the beer garden from a limited bar all week long, and food from a mobile catering unit outside on weekends.

From Thursday the 24th of September, you'll be required to wear a face covering in the Talbot shop. The eight small tables inside will receive table service, while drinks and food in the beer garden will continue on a take-away basis as before (from the windows/porch, or Pig Ark).

The Pig Ark (our little catering van) on the River Lawn is open Friday - Sunday, 1:00 - 7:00

Pizza (Margherita / Pepperoni) £5

Burger (Beef / Cheese / Halloumi) £5

Hotdog £5

Cheesy Chips £5

Chips £4

All seating is outside, except for a small handful of tables in the conservatory; there's no need to book.

Our beer garden is open until 7pm every day, and we are serving beer, cider, wine and soft drinks. There's no need to book in advance.

Due to ongoing refurbishments after flooding earlier in the year, inside seating is very limited, and everything is very much concentrated on the beer garden outside.  We are hoping to reopen the restaurant, bar and hotel before Christmas.

Please allow for slightly varying opening hours and a more limited range of drinks while the building work continues.

We want to make sure that everybody stays safe in accordance with the government guidelines. Please view our risk assessment here: HSE risk-assessment-COVID-19


Our shop in the conservatory is open from 8:00 - 3:00 on weekdays, and until 12:00 on weekends.

We are selling fresh bread, garden produce, take-away beer, eggs, milk, and more.

You can contact us on 01886 821 235 if you have any questions or would like to place an order.

As demand has dropped in recent weeks, we are now only selling fresh bread on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Wednesday's, Friday's and Sunday's bread will be the previous day's.

(Please note that this only concerns bread sold at the Talbot shop - bread from the Talbot bakery sold at other locations will still always be fresh, unless labelled otherwise at the specific site.)

The Talbot at Knightwick

A traditional coaching inn, offering a warm welcome to enthusiasts of good food since the late 14th Century.

Run by the Clift family for over thirty years, The Talbot is managed by Annie. There is a strong emphasis on organic and locally produced ingredients (with the exception of fish delivered from Cornwall and Wales), and traditional, seasonal and sometimes ancient recipes, all re-worked with an imaginative flair and real emphasis on wholesome flavour.

In a peaceful setting on the River Teme in Worcestershire, we are easily reached by road and rail, and we are an hour's drive from Birmingham International Airport. With well-appointed en-suite bedrooms, we offer a superb base for exploring the area.



Access to The Talbot

The Talbot is a 15th Century building, and all of the bedrooms are on the first floor; there is no wheelchair access to them. There are two staircases, one to the old wing and one to the new wing; both are fairly steep but there are handrails. In some of our bedrooms there is a step up into the bathroom, and all showers have built-in shower trays.

Access to the ground floor for wheelchair users is by ramp (over one small step) to the reception door. From there, the whole of the ground floor is level, including The Gold Room Restaurant, which opens out of the lounge bar. The only exception is The Blue Room Restaurant which is one step up from the lounge bar.

There is a lavatory with wheelchair access on the ground floor.

The Talbot Newsletters

Here at The Talbot, to ensure you are kept up-to-date with all the latest news, stories, and events, we are starting 'The Talbot Newsletters', a blog of two halves: 'From The Kitchen Garden...' gives stories from our Talbot gardeners, specifically with stories and gardening tips from Sue Bayliss, our head Gardener. Second to that, are 'The Talbot Journal', which will advise of events coming up in the coming month, and give a review of the month just gone.
