About The Talbot

If you like home-cooked food and real ale served from the barrel, you'll love The Talbot.
The historic Talbot Inn offers beautiful en-suite accommodation, an award-winning restaurant and all the charm of a traditional English inn.
There was a building on the site as long ago as 1376 and the building was originally used as a wharf where goods to be moved down the river were loaded.
It has been a pub since at least 1774. Originally it was called The Horse and Jockey, but was re-named in 1836 (a Talbot is an extinct hound). Great care has been taken not to spoil the pub's genuine character during the recent refurbishment; the exposed beams are original, with the charisma and atmosphere of a country pub retained.
On a sunny day you can sit a relax on the patio or on the decking next to the wharfstream and enjoy a drink or meal. Inside, you can take pleasure in a variety of ales served straight from the casks behind the bar. Our menu and wine list is varied and offers great choices at excellent prices.
The Wharfstream Suite is now open for bookings with 8 charming en-suite rooms all named after local locks.

Bought by Swindon brewery, Arkell's, in 1997, The Talbot prides itself on being a pub for all the family and hosts various events not to be missed.
