In with the new at the Old Talbot

There’s a real buzz around the Old Talbot, Potterspury.  The remodelling continues and the updated décor, menu and offerings are taking shape. The welcoming atmosphere is drawing in new and regular customers to this gorgeous coaching inn.


The pub retains a traditional feel yet the dining area has a brighter and airier atmosphere. The wooden floor has been brought back to life, the walls painted and warm lighting added. Crisp, white table clothes cover the stylish new tables with comfortable new dining chairs to compliment them.  It all provides a fresh look for every type of get-together.

The transformed menu has received positive reactions to the quality and variety on offer.  The locally-sourced ingredients and olives and bread while you wait are equally popular. There are options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with lighter bites, sharing or slightly more sophisticated choices. Similarly, the gluten-free and vegan dishes bring exciting options.

Families of younger visitors can relax with the children’s menu – it is a affordably priced with 2 courses and a drink, in fact only costing £5.25.  Favourites like the fishfingers and beefburger will tempt even the fussiest little eater. They’ll be equally unable to resist the puddings – warm rocky road with chocolate sauce and custard – Yum!

The tables are carefully set out to ensure a degree of privacy if you are looking for a more intimate dining experience. With dishes offering spicy, fishy, Mediterranean and traditional styles complimented with some delicious wines or beers, you are sure to enjoy the experience.

MusicOn alternate Saturdays local bands and artists will certainly entertain you. From the vocal expertise of the Fabulous Miss Jones bringing her versions of Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse to Drew Rice presenting his Soul and Motown sets – you’ll not be disappointed.

Add into the mix an open mic night every second Tuesday and you could be listening to the next musical star. Simply bring your voice, guitar or music and sing! No music – then test your melodic skills at the karaoke evening. Alternatively sit back and relax with the fabulous tunes being played on the recently installed piano. With landlord Tony’s amazing Frank Sinatra style tap renditions you’ll be unable to resist all that this little gem is bringing to us locals.

Open seven days a week and with evenings that offer more than beer and food, this is definitely a true local to be proud of.
