The Talbot

The Talbot was situated at 16 High Street.
The Talbot Inn is one of the earliest documented inns in Caistor, and is the earliest that remains as a standing building. It was a mustering point in 1642 during the Civil War, suggesting that at this point it was a significant public location rather than simply a beer house. It remained a significant social and commercial venue well into the 19th century, although it was eventually overshadowed by The Fleece, a new inn built at the site of the town's fairs and markets. The current building is unlikely to date from the inn's earliest days, and was probably built at the beginning of the 18th century following the fire of Caistor in the late 17th century. The building has been extensively altered and extended and little remains of its original appearance. The second floor is the least altered, and retains its original room layout, and also features such as skirting and doors. There is also an original staircase. The surviving features suggest an early 18th century date.
