The hotel has a nice ambience, although there is weird vinyl fake wood flooring in the bar. Sheltered sunny outdoor terrace for lunch, and airy dining area. Service was very good but the BLT was slapped together without much care and was very ordinary.

I stayed here on a business trip and found the bedroom quite spacious and well laid out. The beer garden at the back of the hotel is quite nice but I did find the breakfast in the morning not the best. The food was overcooked...More

A famed coaching inn with a restaurant in the leafy village of Ripley, just a short drive from nearby Woking, The Talbot is said to have been the place at which love blossomed between Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton. It's not just this tale that gives The Talbot such a sense of romance, from the traditional old beamed pub area to the glamorous glass backed restaurant, The Talbot is an obviously special place. Spacious and modern, the restaurant is light and airy during the day, a cosier feel falling over the room after dark, while outside, a beautiful garden and champagne terrace are the ideal al fresco spots. With an AA Rosette to its name, The Talbot offers food of a very high standard, garnering a mention in the Michelin guide. Chef Gavin Chilcott creates not only pub style classics, a must in the 15th century bar, but stylish modern British dishes with a strong focus on locality and seasonality.
