Bedrooms at The Talbot Inn are big enough to dance around in. With DAB radios, phone docks and quaffable wine downstairs, there's every chance you might.
The Telegraph

Established in 1480, The Talbot Inn is a traditional yet stylish coaching inn located in Mells, a historic village in the beautiful Somerset countryside, just two hours from London and just twenty minutes from Bath. The pub has a cosy main bar stocked with local ales, a restaurant and grill room both serving unpretentious pub food, a sun-filled cobbled courtyard and a beautiful garden perfect for the warmer months.

From the publican to reservations our team are the beating heart of The Talbot Inn. Take the time to get to know the many faces behind notepad, bar and kitchen door. Find commonality and spark a conversation the next time you visit us. 

Dan
Dan 
/ Publican
Dan has long shunned his native Yorkshire for the idyll of Mells bringing not just his warm nature but also a full range of facial hair styles into The South West. The consummate publican and family man – if that is a phrase.
Georgie
Georgie 
/ Reservations
With too many hobbies to mention , including flower arranging and swimming, and a new one added every other week, Georgie is the embodiment of conviviality. Having, practically grown up in The Talbot, she loves the pub as much as we love her.
Nathan
Nathan 
/ Host
A frustrated beach cocktail barman at heart but with a true heartfelt passion for all things hospitality. Nathan does almost everything, so you can talk to him about anything including the play lists and his latest gin making venture ideas.
Faye
Faye 
/ Host
Caring and simply delightful, a guest was heard to say about Faye and it is indeed true. Faye has worked at The Talbot for many years (and we hope many more to come) and so you can ask her about obscure local things to do.
Moni
Moni 
/ Chef
The bringer of a little Andalusian sunshine (and sometimes a lot) into even the coolest of Mells winters’ nights. With a scrupulous eye for detail and care for everything we produce she keeps everyone in check even the head chef.
Lee
Lee 
/ Chef
Like all chefs Lee loves his food, he also loves producing great food for our guests with the abundance of local produce literally on our doorstep. He’s worked in many places and all his experience culminates in The Talbot kitchens.
