Thought to pre-date 1818, The Talbot boasts a stunning country location, near to Biddulph Grange Country Park and to a series of pretty bubbling streams and ponds. Offering well-loved British pub cuisine, you can enjoy this and the views from by the cosy hearth-fire or the beer garden. The eye-catching building is composed of gorgeous red-stone, housing other rustic characteristics like brick fireplaces and oaken beams.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Talbot menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Talbot ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.
Nestled in the remote Staffordshire countryside, The Talbot is just 24 minutes’ driving to Stoke-on-Trent.

Fantastic setting, cosy inside, however there were candles on the table, which required asking a member of staff to light. Staff member quite vacant to surroundings and customers. Stated she would come back to light it following her taking the food order, but never came back to light the candles. There was a party of 7. Food did not come at the same time, therefore some had to wait before eating so we could eat together. Most dishes were warm and not hot. In fact one meal was sent back, as when it arrived it was not hot but aired. However this was instantly changed when raising the problem and the staff member was very apologetic. Having received the bill at the end of the night, we discovered the initial disinterested staff member had added someone else’s food bill onto ours! Going to the bar I thought would be problematic because there was quite a few people waiting, and only one member of staff at the bar. However the one member of staff recognised myself as a diner that evening, and I was served quite quickly.

You support Good dishes and poor dishes. Salmon, Chicken pie, steak and ale, Gammon are tasty and good. Your recently introduced Lobster fishcake falls short of expectation and rated very poor. The fishcake is very small; does not contain any recognisable meat,( not even a claw), tastes of M&S mush and at £3 + vat per cake is ridiculously expensive. Snob value only. I also found it difficult even confusing to check whether the bill was correct after 33% discount for food was made. Not good.
