The Talbot is a fairly posh looking corner pub.
Once inside there is a decent sized single square shaped room with the bar on the left side,the room is bare boarded and the seating is normal tables and chairs,there is also a small area to the rear left.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Taylor Landlord which went down well,the other beer was Hackney american Pale Ale.
The Background music was decent and the pub was quite busy on my Saturday afternoon visit.
I was happy enough having a drink in this pub
Not sure why some of the reviews are so critical of the pubs in this area,but then again i am happy in going in most pubs i visit.

This pub is really more of a style bar/restaurant than pub and certainly no boozer. The walls are all bare brick and what wood there is, is painted Farrow & Ball smokey blue. Basically there's no décor at all apart from a mirror on a wall. Furniture is largely old school stuff or leatherette sofas. A few lamp standards are dotted around, though lighting is very gloomy indeed. Muted music played and clients seemed mainly to be French.
Ales: just Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Hackney Brewery's American Pale Ale which was a bit warm and cost £4.10 a pint which is about right for the area.
The food here would have to be seriously good to get me to return because as a pub, it fails on all fronts. Fortunately The Scolt Head is a lot better and is just around the corner.

There were a couple of ales on here – Timothy Taylor Landlord and London Fields excellent Love Not War (£2 a half). This place is branded as a “pub & dining” venue, so there are no surprises inside. The walls are either exposed brickwork or painted battleship grey, and there’s no other decor apart from the large chalkboard menu. There is a cluster of leather sofas in the middle of the room, with other furnishings being assorted chairs (including those re-cycled school chairs we see so often now) and dining room style leafed tables. It’s a gastropub so obviously pub grub is thin on the ground, with main courses ranging from £13 to £16 or so. Other typical gastropub features were present on the bar counter, such as bags of crisps in a wooden box; lemons in a bowl; a jug of what looked like already mixed Bloody Mary; and celery sticks in a glass.

This is obviously a child friendly pub judging the number of buggies coming and going, and kids running around. There is some bench seating at the front of the pub, and as I was leaving I saw a few people sitting on a first floor balcony, the access to which I had failed spot when in the pub.

The Love Not War was in fine shape and was definitely the best thing about this pub in my opinion.
