The Talbot has for centuries played its part in history. It is said to have provided the stage for Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton’s love affair to blossom in 1798, and remains one of England’s finest coaching inns.

The Talbot retains many impressive historic features, whilst introducing a contemporary twist. Wonderfully relaxed and welcoming, you’ll find a cosy bar with open fires, real ales and outstanding food. Our restaurant features a stunning copper ceiling and glass wall overlooking the Summer terrace and garden.

There are 43 stylish bedrooms, plus impressive meeting, wedding and conference facilities for up to 120 guests.

The Talbot  is conveniently located on Ripley High Street, just off the A3, less than 2 miles from J10 of the M25 and only half an hour from central London. It is also just 20 minutes from both Heathrow and Gatwick international airports.

Parking is available at the rear of the property in our car park however spaces are limited and should these spaces be full then alternative parking is available in the village green car park or the High Street itself.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, yet professional style and relaxed and informal surroundings and hope to welcome you to The Talbot very soon.
