Christmas has been celebrated at the Talbot Hotel for almost 300 years. Why not be part of that tradition?

A Cracking Christmas at the Talbot Hotel

Christmas is all about spending time with others, whether that’s friends that you’ve known so long they’ve become family, people you’ve just met, or people who’ve known you since you were small - there’s no set formula, but there is a fun familiarity of a group of people with a combined desire for good food, good conversation, and great times...Welcome to The Talbot!

It’s never too early to book your Christmas party for 2018 and we are already taking bookings, so please call 01653 639096 for further details.
