The Talbot Inn is a traditional yet stylish coaching inn located in the heart of the historic village of Mells, 5 minutes from Frome  in some of Somerset’s most stunning countryside. Two hours from London by car or train and 20 minutes from Bath, The Talbot offers great food in a classic pub environment with all the comforts of a smart hotel, but at great prices from £95 per room b&b.

There is a main bar, snug, courtyard and map rooms which are all open every day for classic pub food and drink. Upstairs there are 8 bedrooms, two with adjoining children's rooms.  Separated by a cobbled courtyard is the 500 year old Sitting Room, Coach House Grill Room and a pretty garden.

In the Coach House Grill Room, which is open Friday to Sunday, food is simply grilled over a charcoal and wood fire in the way country inns cooked hundreds of years ago.
