From reading other reviews this has changed hands and how sad it is. It has been allowed to run down and has so much potential. A couple of the staff smiled but the other staff were very unhappy and unhelpful. The food was appalling. I booked a room specifically asking for a room with a view and yep! got the... More

After our initial visit back in July my wife and I were in the area and looking again for a late lunch. The obvious choice was The Tolbot Inn and it didn't disappoint at all. The new owners have listened to the customers and have changed and updated the menu to suit the season and customers needs. The menu Has... More

Not everywhere is open for meals on a Sunday evening but The Talbot Inn serves food then. We picked the pub due to the good reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Our waitress was lovely and apart from the toilets needing some TLC, overall it was very good. We had pie of the day (steak and mushroom) and lasagne.... More

We booked this online some time ago and arrived for a two night stay on Friday 22nd August. We checked in and went to our room no.3 on the ground floor overlooking the car park. For a two night stay you might describe it as adequate. I can definitely say that my son had a far better room than ours... More

My wife and I called in for a late lunch today at this great pub. a traditional pub with a great selection of local beers (Arkells Craft Lager is great) We are all a little sceptical about what you get for the price on the menu but I figured for just under a tenner I would try the New York...

Having used this pub over the years boating through Eynsham we looked forward to its usual good food and beer. How wrong we were..the pub has new management and the food was average. They did have a nice selection of beers on tap however, which helped. I do not know how long the present staff have had the pub but... More

We've always enjoyed eating and drinking at The Talbot, run by the lovely Trevor, and were disappointed (and more than a little worried for the future of the pub) when he moved on. There was no need. We fancied a steak, rang to check the menu and to book a table, and turned up on Monday evening. The beer we... More

Popped in for a friendly pint, staff were chatty as were the locals. Nice local beers on tap and out of cooled barrels.

Not as good as it was. Needs the rooms to be re-furbished and the menu to be improved if it is to be good value at the new, higher prices.
