We had an inkling that Le Talbooth was going to be included in The Times Weekend section on Saturday, but you can imagine our surprise and delight when the restaurant was number 4 under the heading ‘Hot date 20 sexiest restaurants’ – quite an accolade after 65 years.

We describe Le Talbooth with many superlatives, including glamorous, iconic, fabulous, stunning and now we have another to add to the list – sexy! This is how the Times described this wonderful Dedham property:

The riverside terrace is idyllic, but for a more intimate ambience, head to the gently lit, oak-beamed dining room.

So, Le Talbooth is definitely a place to visit on Valentine’s Day, either for lunch with the normal daily menu or for the special Valentine’s dinner of Champagne, 4 course dinner, red rose and chocolates at £95 per person.

If you’d like to book, give Le Talbooth a call 01206 323150.
