Gentle reader, I grew up in a Yorkshire mill town, reknowned far and wide for the 'earthiness' of some of its pubs. But the Talbot - or 'Number Ones' as it is locally known - is in a league of its own. The interior is reminiscent of the Golden Heart of Spitalfields... all deep brown wood panelling, topped with 70s curry-house flock wallpaper. The barstaff were a mother and daughter team with several dozen tattoos between them. I am quite sure they could literally drink you under the table and still subdue a drunken sailor. The patrons were of the professional boozer variety, stella drinkers to a man, with an above-average number of facial scars among them. None of this you would guess from the outside, because you can't see in through the opaque glass. Sadly, we didn't see a repeat of the time when one of the patrons decided to go to sleep lying in the middle of the floor, where he remained, unmoved and ignored, for the next six hours. In a town increasingly dominated by Charlie and Jocasta Second-Home, it's good to know that a working port like Bideford still has a proper sailors-on-shore-leave-punch-up-over-a-cheap-tart-at-closing-time boozer. And I mean that in a positive sense. It's not a pub for me, but it is a great little pub, in its own way.
