Dropped in for lunch on the off chance as had passed the pub many times on the way into Oxford. It is pleasant inside and had a good range of ales. I had the Wiltshire Gold from a barrel behind the bar and it was excellent. My wife chose the backed potato with prawns and I had the sausage sandwich,... More

I don't have a good word to say about our stay here. The housekeeping is shocking! The carpet in our room looked like it had never seen a vacuum cleaner. We had to keep our shoes on to keep our feet clean! We had two single beds pushed together with a hard ridge down the middle. The beds didn't even... More

It's so sad to read reviews that are borne out of another hotels incompetence setting you off on a bad wicket really.

The staff were very welcoming. Excellent home cooked food. Comfortable room. Plenty of parking. Attractive seating area outside by the river. Well cooked breakfast. The Inn has charm - and a wisteria in bloom outside!

This pub is excellently located close to Oxford on the river Thames (right next to a bus stop for those using public transport). We had a room in the old part of the building, which was quite good value for money but let down by a few things. The cleanliness could have been better e.g. dust around skirting boards, mould...

We enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Talbot Inn but the nights stay was slightly disappointing as we expected an extra large double bed in accomodation on the banks of the Thames, according to Booking.com. The bed was a standard double and the Thames was a fair distance away, with the waterside being a canal. That said, the staff were... More

I stayed with you twice in the last week and the service was first class from the greeting on arrival right through my stay. The rooms were lovely and very clean. During the night the rooms were quiet with a home from home warmth. Thank you. I would recommend an evening with The Talbot.

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...
