A former strawberry barn, this Badger pub is full of character and charm. Well kept and well run this is a restaurant pub that also has plenty of room for those who simply want a drink. I like that there is a formal restaurant area in conjunction with the large and welcoming family pub area. The choice is yours. You can also eat in the pub area, where you can have a simple dish of cheesy chips or other various sharers as well as a full meal with desert. The ambience is relaxed and refined, so may not suit those looking for something more upbeat or loud. The rooms appear to have themes, such as the racing car theme in the room in which we sat. In another room there is a large mural of women picking strawberries. The strawberry connection is found in various little things around the pub, like a mural of The Beatles on the outside ("Strawberry Fields Forever"). The pub itself is named after the talisman strawberry which grew in the area. Service is excellent - polite, professional and quick. There was a choice of three Badger ales. Large outdoors seating area at the back, and a very large car park. We liked this place. We liked the ambience, the beer, and the food. And it was good value.

Visited the Talisman today for a late lunch with my son, Order a jacket potato with beans and cheese, couldn't believe that we waited 50 minutes for food to arrive (after asking twice how much longer we would be waiting) there was hardly anyone in the pub at about 3pm, so the wait seemed far to long for such a simple order, when the jacket potato arrived it was so under cooked half was raw and had been microwave.... We left the pub and food quite quickly, the standards for some reason have dropped and I won't be returning!!

Excellent pub. really friendly Landlord and staff.
Plenty of room, plenty of tables, lots of interesting nooks and crannies so you never feel hemmed in. The food is consistently really good quality, even something as simple as ham, eggs & chips is superb.Sunday lunch is always great,and the prices are very reasonable compared with other pubs in the area. I've never been disappointed with this pub and I definitely recommend it as a great all rounder.

Great range of beer, good food, good service and nice decor. I visited on a Sunday lunchtime and it was fairly quiet.
