The 16th century Talbot was one of the most prestigous hotels in Tetbury.

The Talbot is now converted into eight self contained flats called Talbot apartments.

The Citizen, 5th December 1980 – Hotels ‘not to be sold’: Rumours that either The Crown or The Talbot hotels in Tetbury are to be sold in the near future have been denied by the brewery firm of Whitbread Flowers. “All that is happening is that The Talbot will be let on a lease at a future date,” said the brewery spokesman.

Licensee of The Talbot is Mr Greg Hill, who took over from his father just over a year ago. Mr Hill, senior, had been landlord of the hotel for 13 years. Mr Greg Hill said he and his wife, Linda, are giving up the licence to return to Ashford in Kent where his wife will return to teaching.
