Our Story

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 over thirty 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

“Great to come back”

Great to come back. Great beer, location and staff. Made welcome and thoroughly chilled. Planning the next stay already.


“Cosy room with good amenities”

Cosy room with good amenities (fantastic freshly baked shortbread was a great touch) with a fabulous breakfast – great value. We only visited overnight after a friend’s wedding, but the local area looked great for walkers. “


“Pleasant, friendly service”

We spent a couple of nights here to visit friends in the area. The staff were ALL very friendly and helpful, from the lady with the vacuum cleaner to the manager. A very relaxed stay in a warm and pleasant room. Lovely breakfast as well.


“Charming, characterful and great value”

The pub is full of character and was very busy when we arrived (always a good sign). I loved the Gala Pie, followed by a delicious bread and butter pudding. The next morning breakfast exceeded expectations with lots of fresh fruit, fruit juice and an excellent cooked breakfast (the best possible tomatoes). Overall great value and highly recommended.”
