The Talbot Inn first appeared in Chorley on the 1861 census and was one of a handful of pubs in close proximity to the railway station, the others including the Waggon Makers, Station Hotel, Railway Hotel, Leigh Arms and Railway Hotel.  It has been a hairdresser/Barber's shop now since around 2006 and no longer trades as a pub.  Next door the Waggon Makers, now called Sam's Bar is still open.

Listed landlords at the Talbot Inn were Richard Holden (1861), Mary Ann Holden (1865), James Higham (1871), Robert Halliwell (1871-85), Michael Walsh (1885-89), William Baxendale (1891), Emma Gent (1901) and Thomas Costello (1911).
