very good service. We had at least 3 different staff serve us, and all very good. Full table service including drinks. Food was fine, mid sized portions which suited us. Easy parking and access. 4 people, 2 rounds of drinks and coffee - £95

Definitely more of a restaurant than a pub these days, The Talisman provided a good lunchtime menu and good service.
