I recently stayed over at the Talbot inn for an overnight business stay. My overall experience was excellent. The inn itself has a nice rustic feel and serves a wide range of traditional English food and ales. I opted for the 'Talbot cow pie' complemented by a nice cold pint of 3B. In the morning, I indulged in the complimentary... More

Stayed one night at the Talbot and had a lovely meal in the evening. Staff were friendly and Helpful. An enjoyable experience. Our room was available at 12:15 when we arrived and we were able to put our bags in the room before our trip into Oxford. The local bus stops outside the hotel about every 15 minutes which makes...

We stayed one night to break a long journey and to visit Oxford (which was very convenient, using the park and ride system). Our room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We had an evening meal in the pub and breakfast the following morning. We found the staff very friendly and helpful; there was a good choice... More

It is with regret that I write a disappointing review for this place, not about the room - which was fine, but about the terrible service throughout! I made a late booking on behalf of my partner who sadly found himself 160 miles away from home, attending to his son who had been involved in a serious car accident. It... More

Good Morning Amy. Thank you for your review, all be it retaliatory. You reserved two rooms via the on line booking console Laterooms. Our bookings and cancellation policy is very clear, both before you book and subsequently on the confirmation you receive. When you booked two rooms, that took us over the staffing threshold for breakfast and housekeeping for Monday... More

Myself and my daughter recently stayed at the Talbot Inn and found it to be a great place to stay. The bus is right outside and about 15mins to Oxford. No need to take a car. Extremely clean and well thought out room - we were upgraded and had a lovely renovated room. The staff are very cheerful and helpful... More

Just spent the weekend here doing a section of the Thames path. Couldn't have been better. Staff friendly and welcoming. Lovely rooms. Excellent pub grub in the evening. Dog friendly. Even put up a last minute addition to our group. Highly recommended

We stopped at this pub/hotel whilst looking at property in the area. One side of the pub is suitable for dogs and we enjoyed a warm welcome from the staff who gave the dogs a treat (biscuit). The menu is extensive, although we just had a sandwich. We did have an issue with one of the sandwiches but it was... More

We stayed here last weekend, and only booked the night before. The room was clean having recently been refurbished but there was NO mention of sharing a bathroom!!! Breakfast was nice as the pub itself serves excellent food. The pub is so on a toll road (of 5p for cars!?!). I wouldn't stay here again for the £50 the room... More

Many thanks for your review albeit, I'm surprised that you were surprised about the shared bathroom. I have traced your booking and it appears that you booked on Thursday 15th and stayed on Friday 16th. You booked through Laterooms.com and the room you booked was very clearly described as a 'Shared Facilities Double'. At the Talbot, we have 8 really... More
