Our restaurant menu is available 12:00 - 21:00 daily
The Talbot has been graced with a few awards over the years, including, most recently, The Good Pub Guide's Country Dining Pub, Worcestershire 2018 award.
In the words of Jay Rayner, our plates are "a plate that cares", and that's true not just for the customer they are going to, but also for our local community, using only local ingredients and produce given to us by the community in times of glut.
This makes our menu ever-changing and diverse, with a strong emphasis on the traditional. We take centuries-old recipes, and mimic them with the produce we have available, bringing many wonderful plates to your tables.
We have a number of delightful rooms to welcome the 'private' diner into, which are outlined below. These restaurant rooms are for those who wish to be away from the hustle and bustle of the Bar rooms, and want to enjoy a more serene, table service setting.
The Shoot Room
Also known as The Library, it is ideal for a range of private dining functions, from weddings and family get-togethers, to corporate dinners.
The Shoot Room will seat up to 20 on one table, and a maximum of 38 on smaller tables.
We can tailor menus to your individual requirements.
Also known as The Garden Room, and sometimes The New Room, this is the newest addition to The Talbot, and features stunning views out to the river, and the Pig Lawn, where our home-grown pigs can be seen snuffling about their daily routine.
The Conservatory can be used for private dinners, wedding, and many other functions, with menus tailored to individual occasions. However, it is also a popular area to sit in the summer, just for a general visit and one of our restaurant meals.
The Restaurant Rooms
THE BLUE ROOM
Our formal dining room, brimming with the scents of fresh flowers, cut and arranged by Mrs Clift, with table service, and napkin rings that share a menu item from The Talbot kitchen, for you to take away and try at home.
This area is generally for private dining functions, but if you have a larger group and would like to discuss the use of this area for your event, please do speak with us, and we can see what we can do.
THE GOLD ROOM
The more informal dining room, for those who wish to be away from the bar crowds, but who still want to be within reach of the drinks available. Suitable for both private dining, and also for informal parties, where access to the bar is important.
This area can be set up with both drinks and food buffet tables, which means it can be quite multi-functional, dependent on your occasion's needs.
If you are interested in a private function, please do call, and arrange to meet with our Head Chef, to discuss all the details.
