A Little Pub History
The Bell & Talbot Bridgnorth pub was first licensed in 1831 as The Bell Inn. Talbot was added to the name in 1844 by Richard Evans. A brewhouse was added to the building in the 1800’s and produced beer until around 1920.
In September 2015 Keith Lacey was proud to take over the reins when he became the manager of Bell & Talbot. Keith looks forward to seeing you and is keen to build the pubs reputation for good beers, cask ales and live music. He will even shoot a good game of pool with you if time permits.
Bridgnorth is a tourist delight with its first historic records going back to 895. There is plenty to see with the Severn Valley Railway, the Castle Hill Railway ( The oldest and steepest funicular railway connecting Lown Town & High Town ), Northgate Museum and annual events such as the Bridgnorth Music Festival, Bridgnorth Beer Festival and Bridgnorth Lions Sponsored Walk.
