By direction of Annie Clift upon retirement The Talbot Hotel comprises a Grade II listed property dating originally from the 15th century located close to the Worcestershire/Herefordshire borders enjoying an idyllic location on the banks of the River Teme in the beautiful Teme valley. The Hotel and Public House has developed an outstanding reputation over the 40 years of the careful stewardship of Annie Clift and family and in 2018 The Talbot was awarded the Good Pub Guide Award for Country Dining. The Talbot has been home to the ever popular Teme Valley Market over the past 25 years which is held every second Sunday of each month. In addition to the Hotel/Public House the business brews and sells its own beer/larger which are brewed on site trading as the Teme Valley Brewery.
