Once a staging post for travellers on the road between London and Brighton, The Talbot is still the hub in the historic village of Cuckfield. It’s now a contemporary pub and restaurant that prides itself on making the most of the local larder, whether it’s Dark Star ales or seasonal dishes such as crab arancini, watercress and lime mayonnaise; roasted pork tenderloin, heritage carrots, white bean cassoulet and roasted apples; and lemon meringue tart with raspberry cream.
