An easy walk from Lyme Regis, especially via the riverside route and probably up there with the best pubs the town has to offer. As ever, this being the Devonshire side of the border, the beers are from Otter rather than Palmers and the ale went down well even if a guest of the local Town Mill brewery would have been welcome. A tortoise sits in silence in a pen in the corner.

I called in several times during our holiday nearby, mostly to refill my 4 pint take out flaggon. Also had Sunday lunch which was very good. The beer was mixed in quality, I got served seriously cloudy beer on two occasions, although it was still drinkable both times. I also had a few really good pints there. I give it a 5/10, not enough care taken to be any better.

all was well ( good carvery, real ale not bad without being brilliant)
and chatty, pleasant staff.
There were one or two families with well behaived kids, no problem.
But then in walked a group of 10 with four toddlers and a baby.
Utter chaos, screaming and the parents totally unphased by their kids awful behaivour.Desapite filthy looks from most of the other pub users the parents and pub staff did nothing.
The sooner small kids are banned from pubs the better !!!

This is one of those pubs that you just feel is the way pubs ought to be. We live nearby so have visited quite a few times, though not enough to be considered a regular. The beer seems well kept to me, even if Otter is not my all-time favourite; and the food good and honest: not pretentious. There are plenty of locals that eat here out-of-season, which must be a good sign. It can of course be busy on hot summer days, but we've never had a problem with service. I would recommend a visit without hesitation.
BTW regarding the "zero" rating below I am sure this is unfair and so I have upped the 8 that I would probably give this pub to compensate a bit. The Talbot deserves better. I am always suspicious of any reviewer who has only commented on a single pub - there must have been some reason good that the normally very calm landlord chucked them out.

An excellent pub situated in a very pretty part of the world. Just up the hill from here and about 5 minutes walk is a great campsite that caters for tents and tourers so The Talbot is the perfect place to end the day, or to pop in as it's on the beautiful walk from Uplyme to Lyme Regis.
The pub keeps 4-5 ales on at any time and for the time we were there, these were from Otter or Dartmoor breweries. Without doubt the best pint of Otter I have ever had, including The Bridge in Topsham which is some achievement, although The Talbot does have the advantage of being nearer the Otter Brewery.
Service was never anything less than efficient and friendly and the locals are happy to engage in conversation too.
The food here also demands attention. The menu is firmly planted in the 'pub grub' rather than the restaurant pigeon hole, but it's reasonably priced, served efficiently, servings are plentiful and the food - particularly the meat - is locally sourced. The fillet steak was incredible and cannot be recommended highly enough.
On a nice warm evening, go down the stairs and out of the back of the pub to the large garden and patio and enjoy the view of the surrounding valley. There is also a stream running through the garden. Also at the back is a block of 5 single story apartments which form the pubs accommodation.
One comment about the note below. Although this pub has a juke box and a TV, it's not a sports bar, it's not rowdy and is not the place you'd expect to find people getting leathered before moving onto a club etc. The juke box is always played at background levels, as is the TV (if it's on). It's also not the sort of place you'd expect to be hearing offensive language coming from another table. If your 'private conversation' was overheard, which it clearly was, then you were rightly asked to leave and if you have to play the race card rather than own up for your own misbehaviour then it's you that sounds like the racist, not the pub landlords and clientele.
