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 function rooms. 

Please also note that our restaurant is closed on Monday evenings until further notice. 

Due to the recent change in government guidelines, can we please remind all guests to wear a face covering when in the public area unless exempt. Thank you for your support and co-operation.
