Stopped off on the way home with very hungry bellies, choice of carvery or off menu. It's a lovely place, decking by the river for warmer days, had my disabled daughter with us, wheelchair access was good. Staff were attentive & helpful, food was lovely, we were there late & carvery was still good. The only reasons for not giving... More

We had the misfortune of staying at the Talbot Inn recently. Should having taken heed of the reviews, but the photographs looked so beautiful that we could not resist. Our room – no 9 – was awful, nothing like the pretty pictures. The room was very small. The floor was so dirty that we put down newspaper to protect our... More

Thank you for your frank and forthright review. You clearly have an eye for detail. It's a shame that your eye for detail failed you when making the reservation via Laterooms as you would have noticed that these rooms are our simple and functional rooms in the original building, as described on our website and Laterooms. We make no effort... More

Had business in the town and wanted a light bite. The outside looked attractive and no problem to bring the terrier in. Nice traditional but very clean decor. Good ales on draught - barrels on display. Food was of the traditional type but well done and just what was needed that day. Staff were friendly and efficient. Only poor point... More

There was 11 of us who booked for a meal at the last minute and we all had a fab time, the food was amazing and the size of the starters and mains were huge and such value for money. I have been here before as living in the village and it was nothing to compare to this visit. The... More

We live in the village so could walk to The Talbot. Good reputation in the local area so thought we would try it with friends. Booked online, very simple, confirming email took a couple of days but we were reassured when it came! Monday before Christmas, place was fairly full but unfortunately waiting staff were unaware of what was "off".... More

Value for money and very generous portions in authentic English country pub atmosphere. Choice of at least 4 roast meats and loads of veggies. Have to say the food was very well prepared. It's about expectations, and this place did not disappoint. Popular so get there early.

Stayed here for one night while on business in Eynsham, and thought that I could manage one night on the cheap.. well, cheap for a reason, gentle readers ! I can't argue with the price which was very favourable, but in retrospect I might have pushed the boat out a little further and had a more comfortable stay. I knew... More

Thank you for your review. Our original rooms aren't at the cutting edge of luxury but are simple and functional. As you point out, they are very reasonably priced and offer great value for money in our area. Please try the Talbot again and book a Wharf Lodge room - they are really nicely appointed and offer a much higher... More

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

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.
