The food we had was excellent and the ambience has improved with new owners. Short stroll from eynsham village centre of just one stop on the bus from the village. Was moderately quiet for a Saturday night and this didn't make sense to us given the quality of the food

Me and my partner were in Oxford for a couple of days and needed somewhere to stay at short notice so decided to look on LateRooms.com for places to stay and we stumbled across the little gem of a B&B just outside Eynsham.... boy were we happy with our choice! Wish we were staying longer as we couldn't fault the... More

Ideal, and in a lovely position by the river. A problem with the room was quickly and efficiently dealt with. A lovely dining room, full of character. It is a beautiful area with many places to visit.

A few months back I stayed overnight at the Talbot as I used to live in Eynsham and often go back to visit friends. I used to drink at the Talbot frequently under the previous management, which was always wonderful. Unfortunately I had a terrible experience this time and will never stay again. I had pre-paid for a full English... More

But the room i stayed in was nice and modern with en suite facilities. it was quiet at night and i got good sleep for the entire week. The food here... More

Called here as they have ales in barrels which us unusual these days and the beer was excellent. We decided to eat in the restaurant which seems busy. Menu choice not too extensive and was changed yesterday. I opted for a simple jacket potato with prawns and garlic bread and my partner had the burger. The garlic bread was lacking... More

Good Morning. Many thanks for your review albeit, a not so clever one! We're glad you enjoyed the beer and the quirky way of serving it. I was sorry to read that your jacket potato was a bit hard - had you mentioned this at the time we would have gladly replaced it for you. I will ask the chef... More

My Husband and I know this pub very well as we lived locally until recently. We decided to stop off for some food one night at around 9pm. This is the first time we have eaten there since the new management have taken over. The staff were brilliant, super friendly and really efficient. The food however, was a different matter.... More
