Contemporary cooking amid boutique glamour

Once a pub but now a hip boutique hotel, The Talbot has a stylish look and a friendly attitude with live music in the bar at weekends. The plush Barony Restaurant is the main dining option here and there's a small terrace for alfresco lunch or early dinner. The kitchen seeks out good regional ingredients and delivers a menu that matches the tone of the place for contemporary attitude. A strong link with local fishermen is evident with a starter of seafood chowder, which might lead on to turbot with mussels and saffron. For dessert, try the apple tasting plate.
