A Place in History


We have been very busy behind the scenes getting everything ready to welcome you back. We have refreshed our south facing garden and terrace and painted The Barns in readiness of welcoming you back. 

Our doors are always open and bookings are now being taken for the terrace and restaurant but it is not always necessary to reserve a table so please feel free to pop by. Food is available from 6.30am! Please remember that face masks are still required in the public areas. 

Your well being remains of huge importance to us and our staff have all completed COVID-19 awareness training.

We look forward to seeing you very soon. 

Kind regards

Francesco & the team 

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Surrey village of Ripley just under 5 minutes drive from RHS Gardens Wisley, The Talbot stands as one of the most storied and historic coaching inns boasting many period features from its 500 year history.

Conveniently located just 30 minutes from Central London, The Talbot was once a frequent hitching post for Lord Nelson and is even said to be the site on which his love affair with Lady Hamilton blossomed. 

More recently, The Talbot is known as one of the foremost inns in the region offering a warm welcome to weary travelers to rest and relax in one of our 43 en-suite bedrooms.  All our guests recieve complimentary car parking and Wi-Fi. 

Whatever the occasion for your visit, we look forward to welcoming you.
