A period pub in rural Devon...

Jan and Maria welcome you to the Talaton Inn, a traditional period pub in the heart of the ancient village of Talaton, Devon. Talaton was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and still remains a thriving village and community.

A perfectly placed free house

Seven miles west of Honiton and four miles north of Ottery St Mary, Talaton is close to Escot Gardens, Cadhay Manor House and Killerton House.

The Talaton Inn is a free house serving an extensive range of beers, including some excellent local brews. Our period bar with its feature beams and fireplace offers a warm welcome for a cosy drink or snack. We also have a separate lounge bar and dining room, again with feature open fireplaces, providing a relaxed atmosphere for a great meal out.

Local produce, traditional fayre

Our food at the Talaton Inn is traditional pub fayre, prepared using local produce. We serve daily specials and great value offers like our £5 Special and Sunday Lunches - voted Top 5 in Devon by the Times. Please see our Food and drink page for details. All the menus are created by Jan, the Chef and changed on a regular basis. The Talaton Inn also hosts regular Theme Nights, provides takeaway food and a bar and catering service for local events and functions.

Outside we have a large car park for visitors, plenty of seating to watch the village go by while you enjoy your drink and food and a smoking shelter with table and chairs!

Sporting activities are an important part of village life and the Talaton Inn is home to several teams, including darts, euchre and skittles. The public bar has a dartboard area and the skittle alley-cum-function room is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for private parties free of charge.

As such, the Talaton Inn plays an active role in village life. There is plenty to see in Talaton and from here you can access many walks of varying intensity in and around the beautiful Devon countryside, so well worth a visit. Please see our Hours page for details of our seasonal opening and food serving times and we look forward to welcoming you soon.
