Of course we are very pleased to be open and very much appreciate your custom, it is lovely meeting families who are on their holidays and especially lovely seeing the children enjoying themselves. However, we are getting an unprecedented amount of emails, phone calls and FB messages asking to a book table to come and eat.
While we are trying our very very best to answer each and every request we may well be missing some responses in time for you to book your chosen date with us, we apologise if this has happened to you. Also, during our food service times between 12 and 2 on a lunch time and 5.30pm and 8.30pm in the evenings it is sometimes not possible to take your booking over the phone as we are busy serving customers who have already booked and are eating with us.
Our wonderful loyal staff are incredible and are working extremely hard, please bear this in mind if you call at a busy time and they cannot attend to your request there and then. We simply will not accept our staff being shouted at or sworn at by any customer who for whatever reason cannot have their request dealt with immediately! We will however ask you to call back at the end of the meal time service or leave a number and we will endeavour to return your call – but not if you have been unkind or disrespectful. We really are trying our best here.
We will be offering our Light Lunchtime Menu Friday-Sunday between 12pm-2pm (weather permitting).
We will continue our takeaways on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings from 5.30pm-8.30pm. Please do ring to book a time slot.
Please know, that we are trying our best, and are dedicated to giving you our customers, our best attention and service during these difficult but progressing times.
Any questions please do not hesitate to give us a ring at the pub on 01297 443136 and we will try our best to help.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
Best wishes, TEAM TALBOT

Steve and Wendy endeavour as much as possible to source the wonderful regional products of The West Country. We have always had a great relationship with our Local Brewery, ‘Otter Brewery’ based in Luppitt Near Honiton, which is only a 30 min drive from our Pub. We have a regular weekly delivery which ensures we can always offer our locals and visitors a great pint of Otter Bitter, Otter Ale and all other Otter seasonal Brews.
We endeavour as much as possible to source the wonderful regional products of The West Country. We have always had a great relationship with our Local Brewery. Our Ciders are of course, as you would expect are local, from Devon and Somerset Orchards, and we serve at least two different lagers and Draught Guinness. We have a good selection of Red, White and Rose Wine. We also serve a good selection of West Country Gins and some tried and tested cocktails.
Our 5 bed and breakfast rooms are situated at the rear of the pub in the garden area. The lovely thing about our rooms is that you can come and go as you please without having to come through the pub. Each B&B room has its very own front door which you access by going around to the back of the pub. Because of the lovely location of our bed and breakfast rooms, we can accommodate late arrivals and late check outs, just discuss this with us when you book.
We are fortunate to have lovely garden areas to sit, chat, eat and drink. We have areas where you can sit in the brilliant sunshine or if you prefer in the cool and shade. Our green fingered staff and local nurseries ensure we have lots of lovely flowering tubs, baskets and colourful borders.
Best Roast Lunch!
“We were staying in nearby Lyme Regis and fancied a pub lunch. The Talbot arms serves the best roast beef!!!! The veg was great and we were told we could have more if we wanted. The staff were lovely. I wish them well in these weird times.”
This is the place for dinner.
“Short menu of home cooked yummy stuff. That can be easily delivered on time. Great fish pie and lasagne etc. Plus some stuff from the grill. Burgers etc. Feels very safe with a high attention to detail. We ate out a few times and this was the best organised. I know some folk are reluctant to eat out. So if you want to try it. This is the place.”
Just what we needed.
“Camping nearby and felt like a change: good beer (Otter brewery); nice food in generous quantities (we had fish pie and veggie lasagne – but the highlight was the warm treacle tart and clotted cream) and really friendly manager and staff. Thank you for a lovely evening!”=
Here at The Talbot Arms, we are very proud of what our bed and breakfast and little village pub has achieved.
