Whilst serving a variety of patrons throughout history, The Talbot enjoyed its moments in the spotlight in 1798 when the inn is reputed to have provided a trysting-place for Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton's love affair.

    I recently had my wedding reception at The Talbot, it was a great day. Throughout it all the two gentleman who were the hosts were excellent and nothing was too much for them. The food and service of the food was great and we had no problems. Everyone working that night was brilliant! Due to The Talbot being taking over we did have a few problems with co-ordinators at first. However when we had a permanent co-ordinator to talk too, she was very helpful and quick to reply to emails. The Talbot is in a lovely setting and if you want a small and lovely wedding The Talbot is the place!

    We had a wonderful wedding at The Talbot Ripley in June 2017. The wedding planner, Krystyna, was very efficient and guided and helped us with our plans for the day. The Surrey Barn was decorated beautifully and was a very intimate venue - just what we wanted. The MC on the day was great and nothing was too much trouble. The food was good as were the staff. We had a perfect wedding day!

    My husband and I married at The Talbot on 1st July 2017. Our wedding was 2 years in the planning and worth every moment of it. Kristina, Russell and the entire team were fantastic! Given we had so long to plan our wedding we knew exactly what we wanted - nothing was too much to ask of the team and they were so helpful in offering suggestions for the day and recommending suppliers as well as generally going above and beyond at any opportunity.

    In the run up to the and on the day itself we knew we were always in safe hands with The Talbot team! We had the most perfect day and our wedding was nothing short of amazing thanks to the team at the Talbot. Several guests commented it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding and commented how great the venue and staff were too. Huge thanks to all at The Talbot for making our dream wedding a reality!
