Kentucky Bourbon Trail - Official SponsorWhen visitors walk into the Old Talbott Tavern, there's a feeling about the place. It's well kept, but the passage of time is evident in a few creaking floorboards. There's an air about the place that speaks of people who have come and gone, spending time in the pub and retiring to their rooms before an early morning departure.

Travelers used to arrive on horseback or in buggies; today they come in automobiles. Tourists and locals mingle and lives intertwine in the "ordinary," a place to rest and receive nourishment before traveling on to their final destination
