Pub Overview

Fantastic Refurbishment Planned!

A full refurbishment of the trade area and toilets will create a much more premium look and feel, complimented by works to the kitchen, to enable the next operator to create a brilliant food offer. A new name will signify the brand new, contemporary offer - appealing to customers looking for that modern twist on the Great British Pub!

Vibrant City Centre Location

Wakefield City Centre is a great busy city with a vibrant night life. The Talbot is located in Wakefield City Centre, in a prime location just off The Bull Ring. There are over 4,000 people living just a 10 min walk time from The Talbot, as well as thousands of people that commute to the city centre to work, shop, or socialise.
