Le Talbooth was established in 1952 and its picturesque setting beside the River Stour makes dining in Dedham a delightful affair. The riverside terrace and lawn in the heart of Constable Country enjoy a natural backdrop which would inspire any artist.
Le Talbooth weddings are magical. Whether dining in the River Room (riverside restaurant) or dancing in the (April to October) Marquee – the location is picture perfect.
Green, immaculately landscaped gardens, the meandering River Stour (often with visiting swans) and, of course, outstanding food, wine and service.
Le Talbooth Restaurant and Marquee can also work seamlessly with Maison Talbooth – our luxury 12 bedroom country house hotel just around the corner – which holds a wedding licence and can be booked exclusively as an option.
Nothing is too much trouble and we have a dedicated wedding team to talk through any enquiry and help manage the entire process. If you would like to find out more, please visit our dedicated Milsom Wedding website or call our team on 01206 323150 and ask for Alex, Keighley or Alice.
