A traditional village inn in rural Devon...

Jan and Maria welcome you to the Talaton Inn, a traditional inn 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.

Updated village venue

The Talaton Inn has recently been updated with new wooden floors, double burner stove and new tables and chairs.

So while we have created more of an open plan interior, we have been sympathetic to the inn's origins. Creating a larger space for events while still providing a traditional village inn atmosphere for a relaxing time out.

Outside is a large car park and plenty of seating to watch the village go by while you enjoy your drink and food.

We offer daily specials, a £5 lunch, an evening set menu, a smaller eater menu, Sunday roasts - voted the Times Top 5 in Devon, theme nights, takeaways, catering for upto 100 at the pub and an external bar and catering service for local events and functions.

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 Fridays and Saturdays. As such, the Talaton Inn plays an active role in village life.

The Talaton Inn can be found seven miles west of Honiton and four miles north of Ottery St Mary, close to Escot Gardens, Cadhay Manor House and Killerton House.

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.
