EVENTS & CONFERENCES
Our unique pub is steeped in history, which has been respectfully preserved to maintain the integrity of the grade II listed structure. Warm and rustic finishes provide a homely, boutique look and feel throughout the restaurant, bar, function rooms and hotel.
Independently owned, the Clift family have been managing the Talbot for forty years and are supported by a dedicated and talented team who help make The Talbot unique. Over many years we have developed our own style; we are firmly rooted in the traditions and seasonal produce from the Teme Valley region and strongly believe that what we cannot produce ourselves should come from a known local source. We make and grow nearly everything that goes into our pub food, from the bread to the vegetables and even the beer itself! That’s right we have our own on-site bakery, kitchen garden and a produce our own beer at The Teme Valley Brewery!
The Talbot is the perfect UK staycation destination! Our 10 en-suite boutique bedrooms offer a warm, homely retreat if you’re looking to escape to the country and our enviable location makes us a great base to explore the local areas and attractions across the Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire counties. You could even nip across the border for a day trip into Wales! We are easily reached by road and rail, and we are only an hour’s drive from Birmingham International Airport.
The ethos here at The Talbot is simple. We’re all about being authentic and excellent in everything we do; from the food & drink, our hospitable welcome and the home-from-home space we’ve created. So whether you’re joining us for a drink at the bar, an evening meal or staying the night, we aim to go above and beyond every time during your visit.
We have been awarded The Good Pub Guide award for Country Dining Pub, Worcestershire 2018, for which we are extremely proud.

What People are Saying
Beautiful views from the room, exceptionally comfy bed. The food was amazing.
Very well run pub with rooms, polite and helpful staff.
Idyllic location with a beer garden by the river. The room was quiet, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a real treat with fresh fruit and homemade jam. A really enjoyable stay.
Very comfortable room, plenty of space (in the King Charles room), best shower ever, great breakfast, great community pub
From the minute we arrive we were made to feel very welcome, it has a real family atmosphere. We had both Breakfast and dinner which are both excellent. Thank you to everyone there for making our stay so much fun, and we loved the beer!
Our second visit which once again we very much enjoyed. Need we say more?
A bit of a gem: so much more enjoyable than the sterile and “corporate look” chains. In a beautiful location with great view from the bedroom window, friendly bar staff & decent local beers. The breakfast was great & waitress very attentive.
Full of atmosphere and a lovely welcome to a tired traveller. Superb food and a wonderful night’s sleep in a very, very comfortable bed after a nice hot bath.
It was the best hotel we stayed at on our walking holiday (and the others were pretty good). Restaurant staff were efficient and very personable. Breakfast was outstanding. The full English was excellent as was the smoked haddock. Sourdough toast and home-made marmalade and jam. Dinner was very convivial and delicious. I would make a detour to visit the hotel just for the food.
Fabulous setting on the river Teme. The Talbot has plenty of ambiance and a good selection of local beers. Great breakfast too. All in all, a very agreeable stay.
The hotel represents the England of my childhood … the food is very much to my taste and the service is friendly but unobtrusive. The atmosphere is informal yet at the same time courteous.
I like it. [This is] an attractive part of England, to some extent passed by by the modern world. The Malvern hills offer some of the best views in the country.
The best things about the Talbot were the people and the food and drink! We were very comfortable – comfy mattress, great shower and very clean bathroom – and our dog was made very welcome. The staff that served us in the evening and for breakfast were friendly and professional. We had excellent service. We love the ethos of the pub serving homegrown and local food with nothing processed. I commend you for that. Not only were the ingredients excellent but the cooking was too and we enjoyed delicious meals all three evenings. Thank you so much.
Eat at the pub – no need to go anywhere else. The food is first rate and the beer from the brewery excellent too.
Magnificent food: breakfast was huge and varied; the options for lunch and dinner similarly excellent. Extremely pleasant beer garden by the river. Superb beer brewed on site.
Nice old English pub. Just what we were looking for. Welcoming staff – nothing was a bother. Comfortable room, clean and tidy. Coffee and tea facilities were good quality. Lovely bread and ale from the in-house bakery and brewery. We really enjoyed the food. If you like historical interesting buildings as a change from the chain hotels this is a good place to stay.
Staff were friendly and thoughtful. Felt immediately at home. Food, locally baked bread and locally brewed beer were all exceptional. Breakfast was served an hour early to suit my schedule and it was delicious. Morris dancing ended a perfect evening. It was fully booked so I couldn’t stay longer!
The bed was fantastically comfortable! Also I had dinner and breakfast at the venue and both were equally delicious! I can’t lie one of the best breakfasts I think I’ve ever had in a hotel.
Nothing I’d change to be honest. The staff were very friendly. The room was great and food was fantastic. 100% will be my venue to stay at as and when I’m in the area for work.
The Talbot was lovely with friendly staff and wonderful bakery and brewery on site and tried to source everything locally. We really enjoyed our overnight stay.
Beautifully situated. Charming old building with a lovely garden in which we were lucky to enjoy the good weather.
The dinner and breakfast were excellent with great local produce. We were welcomed and well looked after by the staff. I would recommended staying here and hope to return.
Breakfast was very tasty and a nice relaxed atmosphere in the morning. Stunning location with amazing views set in a peacefull village. Enjoyed a great early evening walk through grassy meadows and woodland,the scent of wild garlic in the air and wildlife all around. Polite and helpful staff and just a lovely old fashioned pub with a great double sided inglenook fireplace. Definitely would stay here again and again and find more adventures
