Being so close to the river, the Talbot has seen its share of floods over the last few years. Most recently, it was flooded twice within a few months; first in October 2019, and then the following February. This last flood in particular occasioned a major refurbishment project spanning the entire ground floor.
The kitchen, bar and reception/library area had to be stripped completely, and are being refitted, while the cellar is in the process of being moved above ground.
This gallery will give you an insight into the damage and building work, and let you follow the changes being made.
