The Talbot

PLACES > Buildings > Inns
Sometimes referred to as on Silver Street and others on Market Place, The Talbot is c.16th or c.17th in origin, with it's early c.19th façade with tripartite windows and a pleasant arcade along the front partly supported on tuscan pillars. Investigation into a two square metre room adjoining the cellar, reported in Glevensis* No.19 1985, revealed a limestone floor which had collapsed at some stage. This was covering a supposed cistern or well. Deposits removed and ceramics were passed to an expert, and other finds to the Corinium Museum in Cirencester. Items were dated back to the late C.16th [from Germany] up to the C.17th. Most finds were related to the hospitality trade. For many years it was one of the top hostelries in the town

The Tetbury Troop [of Yeomanry Cavalry] met at the inn where they were supplied with a ‘bountiful and tasteful repast’ by mine host who was a member of the corps. Apparently this comprised delicacies of the season, and the choicest wines.
