As luck would have it, we visited the Talbot during one of its beer festivals yesterday. The pub itself is on a prominent corner at the bottom of a steep hill and just across the road from the River Teme. The main bar area looked very traditional and had a few locals in. All 3 of the main Teme Valley ales were on - This, That & T'Other. But, we ventured across the road to the beer tent. A fourth Teme Valley beer was on - Shepherd's Delight. Other unusual ales on were Artisan Ales BB/01 & BB/02, Beckstones Beer O'clock, Clun Green Man IPA, Corvedale Ale of Odin, Drfitwood Spars Blue Hills & Stocks Special, Foxfield Nick Of Time, Hobson's Black IPA, Lakehouse Amber Session, Ludlow Weissbier, Pershore Helles Lager & Salisbury & Jones Ernest. There were also a couple of ciders, which I had to sample - Barbourne Major Jane and the much more local Ankerdine Cider Shed Village Idiot. Both were quite dry. The Talbot is certainly an excellent place. It's a real pity I couldn't stay longer. My favourite pub of the weekend.

17th century building with many alterations and additions. The conservatory isn't up to much but the traditional lounge bar and tap room are more in keeping with this country inn. The Teme Valley Brewery is located on site and their This, That and T'other were on sale yesterday as well as their seasonal Jack in the Green which was good. Local draught ciders available too. The beer garden overlooks fields of cows and pigs adding to the general ambience. Home to one of the UK's oldest Farmers' Markets every 2nd Sunday of the month.

Used as a base to complete a walk. Got back and offered the choice of This, That or T'Other. Made use of the descriptions on the wall to work out that That would be the preferred!

Nice pint, food looked lovely. Great experience.

Hard to fault in terms of what a country pub can aspire to. Easy-going, comforting, inclusive and relaxed. Very much an 'inn' that brews its own excellent ales, offers high quality, locally sourced, fairly priced food and importantly provides a hub for the community and its visitors. A fine building and a very well run business. Hats off to them as I don't think they do mediocre.

What looks like fairly major building work appeared to be in progress on the hotel section when we were there recently, but that didn't prevent this place from standing out as the best in a locality remarkably well provided with good pubs.
I think I'd need to be around for a bit longer than I was to feel at home in the taproom, which is the kind of old fashioned locals' public bar you don't often come across these days. The other bar, though catering for the pub's flourishing food trade, nevertheless retains absolutely the character of a traditional pub.
They make a point here of emphasising the local origins of everything they serve (bar the fish). The food, though I agree it's quite pricy in the restaurant, is very reasonable in the bar, and they offer some original ideas, always, in our experience, of excellent quality. The beer is from their own Teme Valley Brewery situated behind the pub, and is also first-rate, as well as being cheap (�2.35 a pint for 'This' bitter). The service was friendly and helpful - it was nice to be recognised and welcomed on only one's second visit.
Altogether, it's hard to find fault; it's a place I'd make a sizeable detour to visit again.
