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.
