The Talbot Hotel
The Talbot is an old city hotel in Gouger Street, with a number of different tables inside and outside. Merkel and Myrtle chose on of the booths in the Sports bar. The décor of the bar included classic dark wooden shelving. They served a short menu of basic pub meals.
The hot chocolate was three dollars and came in a tall glass with a handle. There was plenty of froth and sprinkling of chocolate on top. The drink was creamy and tasted of good milk chocolate.
