A Place in History

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. The Talbot remains as one of England's finest coaching inns and has 43 en-suite bedrooms, restaurant and bar and four event spaces which are ideal for meetings and events for up to 100.

Lighter snacks, tea, coffee and sandwiches can be enjoyed in our cozy bar or sunny terrace area which is open everyday for residents and non-residents. We welcome furry friends in our bar and terrace area. 

There is a large car park available (and four electric charging stations) at the rear of the hotel. 

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
