Although not one of Camra's heritage pubs, this is a fine old pub with an interesting if not historic interior. There are two rooms, one to the left in the front of the pub, the other to the right on entering and at the rear. The latter has live football on TV - I went in to photograph the hand pumps which are in here rather than in the front room - and a few locals at the time of our early afternoon visit, while the other was almost empty. The bar counter is made of barrel staves. This was only our third pub of the day and I was trying to take it easy after having two halves instead of one at the Railway Tavern, so I had a half of Bathams Bitter. It was so good that I drank it in a trice and had another.

The Bell & Talbot is a nice looking bare brick built pub that is just off the town centre.
Once inside there is an L shaped room with the bar to the front and facing inwards,the room is carpeted,there is bench seating and small stools for seating,the TV was showing BBC final score.
There is a smaller separate room to the left.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Wye Valley HPA which was a very nice drink to end our Bridgnorth crawl on,the other real ales were Bathams Bitter,Salopian Oracle and Hobsons Stout.
We both thought this was a very pleasant pub to end our pub crawl in.
I think we missed out on four pubs which is a shame.

A traditional pub on the edge of town, which was only a 10 min walk. The pub is traditional in décor and is very basic, the afore mentioned vinyls across the ceiling have now gone. There was an old banjo still on the wall and music is still played in the lounge at weekends.
The pub use to brew Clipper ales out the back, but has sadly gone. The barman did say they are thinking of starting up their microbrewery again, towards the end of the year and will be rebadged to Talbot Ales. They had five pumps on the bar, with four on, so we settled for the Three Tuns XXX.
