place and public house

Aged 442

Commemorated on 1 plaque

THE TALBOT First mentioned in 1580 as a beerhouse. In 1616 as a drinking haunt and in 1760 as a hotel. During the Civil War Charles I ordered that Tetbury be spared from destruction indicating that the King could possibly have dined within the building. In the 18c the frontage was rebuilt and in the 19c the hotel became a coaching inn. In 1881 the historic meeting of the Tetbury Gas Company was held here. Under the building is a deep well and a large stone cistern which probably supplied the water for beer making.
