Talbot Hotel

This is the side entrance to the former Talbot Hotel in Bank Street in the City Centre. The hotel was built in 1878 to a design by architects Andrews & Pepper. The hotel took its name from a large hunting dog said to be capable of bringing down a fully grown stag, the breed is now extinct. The hotel closed in 1974 and the ground floor of the building is now used as a shop.
