Malton – synonymous with good food.

With Malton-born chef James Martin now in charge of the kitchen, the Talbot Hotel tops the list of must-visit places for local and visiting gastronomes.

James, who is well-known for his cookery shows on BBC and Channel 4, makes the most of the area’s renowned butchers, fishmongers, game dealers, farmers and cheesemakers to produce menus of classic but simple food of the highest quality.

“North Yorkshire is in my blood, and I’ve been thrilled to see my home town of Malton build a reputation as a foodie destination based on the abundance of growers and producers in the area.”

“Guests can look forward to finding all my favourite Yorkshire produce on the menu from Wakefield rhubarb to Whitby crab.”

The menu at the Talbot changes regularly to take advantage of the seasons. Dishes are produced with flair by a team of highly trained chefs and served in a professional yet understated manner.
