"Georgie and Sam have a natural talent for making places look cool but comfortable, hip yet homely."
"Georgie and Sam Pearman, spruced up the 26-bedroomed Talbot earlier this year, bringing a modern style to the imposing 17th-century coaching inn. The sedate, white-tableclothed restaurant has been replaced by oak-floored rooms where modern art and antique finds rub alongside ancestral portraits."

"Food and drink are exquisite: locally sourced, lovingly cooked, properly served... the Talbot the parliament of this food capital of Yorkshire..."
