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 under an hour from Central London, The Talbot was once a frequent hitching post for Lord Nelson in the 14th century and is known as a venue where his relationship 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 - ideal for meetings and events for up to 120. 


Parking is available for guests at the rear of the property. Overnight onsite parking is subject to availability and is charged at £10 per 24 hour period. Alternative parking spaces are also available in the village or on the High Street. If parking on site you must register your car registration on arrival at reception to avoid any penalty fines. 

We have three electric charging points for Tesla and Electric cars. The charge is £12.50 per hour. 

We are committed to achieving environmental and social sustainability within the hotel and are working with Green Tourism to ensure we are giving our guests an environmentally-friendly stay. 

On behalf of everyone at The Talbot and whatever the ocasion, we look forward to welcoming you very soon and please do get in touch if you have any questions. 

Warm regards,
