About our venue

The Talbot is situated in the centre of the pretty village of Iwerne Minster on the main A350 between the Georgian town of Blandford and the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury in Dorset. The south coast with the towns of Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth is only a short drive away. We are spoilt for choice when it comes to places of interest as these include the Larmer Tree Gardens, Stourhead Gardens, the Dorset Steam Fair, Compton Abbas airfield and Ashley Wood golf course, to name but a few. If you enjoy exploring the open countryside there are some lovely walks nearby - including a climb to the top of the ancient hill forts of Hambledon and Hod - this should sharpen your appetite for lunch or dinner! The pub has a traditional exterior and contemporary interior including open log fires. There is a relaxed and informal dining atmosphere with meals being served in the dining room, the bars or outside on the heated terrace. Our reputation is such that a large proportion of our clientele travel from afar to dine with us, but we also have our regular locals who often take refuge in one of our bars - the village bar - our snug! The Talbot will delight those in search of award-winning food, good drink and superior accommodation. Come and try us out soon.
