The Talbot Hotel

Yorkersgate, MALTON, YO17 7AJ

2 rosettes

Equidistant from Castle Howard and the Yorkshire Arboretum, The Talbot stands on a B-road running to the north of the River Derwent. It's a rugged but pastoral setting for an accomplished country-house hotel, in a house owned by the same family since the second George. A dining room done in pale green and gold, showcases contemporary cooking of distinctive flair. Dressing a Whitby crab involves adding lardo, fennel pollen and a sorrel sorbet as well as the more usual avocado, but the different layers work well together, as they do in a seasonal main course of Dales grouse roasted in hay, accompanied by its confit leg, mulled red cabbage, salt-baked veg and a bramble and juniper jus. A seafood pairing to conjure with offers wreckfish and crayfish with crispy buckwheat in a rich bisque sauce. The resourceful technical range extends into entertaining desserts such as milk chocolate ganache with rapeseed oil and aerated chocolate, damson sorbet and a caramelised plum.
