The Talbot Ripley
High Street, Ripley, GU23 6BB
Nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Ripley, The Talbot stands as one of the country’s most storied and historic coaching inns. Boasting many period features from throughout its 500 year history, as well as the benefits of an extensive contemporary refurbishment, in addition to the summer gardens and large terrace.
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. Nowadays we are known as one of the foremost inns in the region, retaining our position as a welcoming site for weary travellers, with a cosy bar and outstanding restaurant.
