Jack’s Bar

Opened in the summer of 2022, Jack’s Bar proudly takes centre stage at Talbooth House. Located adjacent to the lounge, it is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing evening drink, an after-spa cocktail, or cheeky nightcap.

The bar was designed by Jack Milsom, Paul and Geraldine’s youngest son, who took inspiration from the trendy bars he had seen across the globe. It really is a wonderful focal point and location for guests to enjoy a pre-dinner drink before being driven in our courtesy car to Talbooth Restaurant.

Jack’s Bar transforms from hotel reception desk to boutique bar in a matter of seconds. Be sure to enquire if you’re interested in private hire. 

Open to hotel & spa guests and available for house parties. Non-residents are welcome as long as we aren’t hosting a house party (usually at weekends). Call ahead to avoid disappointment or be sure that the bar at milsoms Dedham is of course always open.
