“Friendly service and a very warm welcome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed at the Talbot Inn for a couple of nights. Throughout the whole weekend the staff were incredibly friendly and any request we had they were happy to cater to. The room was very clean and spacious and the bed was very comfatable, we both had a good nights sleep. The food was exceptional and was good value for money. We would highly recommend the steak and ale pie. The bus stop is right outside the inn and commuting to the centre of Oxford is a doddle, approximate journey time is 20 mins. Overall we would highly recommend the Talbot inn.

We were meeting friends in Oxford but left it late so couldn't find anywhere short notice in town, so we found this pub outside Oxford by chance really and so happy we did , great food , lovely big room , great ale , and really attentive staff , so whether your staying or passing well worth a stop

Last weekend we wanted to enjoy a quiet weekend near Oxford and to join friends for a Birthday celebration. My wife found The Talbot Inn somehow online and booked through "Late rooms".

We arrived Friday evening and had a very warm welcome, were shown to our room (which was really pleasant). The reception reserved us a table in their little restaurant for dinner and made us feel very welcome.

The dinner was superb, great home cooking - and very large portions!

The breakfast was basic but traditional - and must have used local ingredients cos the sausages were lovely!

The beer was great - for those who like a pub to serve good ale!

No issues with noise and despite being very busy - parking wasn't an issue.

I should imagine in the summer the proximity to a small river with a platform to eat and drink away the evenings would make it a real joy!

If you are in the area - its well worth a visit!

Room Tip: All seemed good - tucked away from the road behind the main pub...

Stayed here for a couple of days recently. Room, in the annexe, was super, nicely laid out, very clean and comfortable. A little traffic noise but nothing too bad. Staff very good and helpful. Only downside was the evening meals - very basic pub grub, enormous portions. Would have preferred half the amount of better presented food. Overall good.

Enjoyed a lovely 2 night break at the Talbot Inn. The local village is a short walk away with some traditional English pubs which are worth a visit.

There is a bus stop just outside the Talbot which runs directly into Oxford and is really convenient. There is also a late night bus service from Oxford so on the Saturday night you can get a late bus back to outside the pub, saving on expensive taxi fayre!

Room really nice, really large and comfy beds..

We ate an evening meal at the Talbot and it was lovely, great value for money, very friendly staff.

Breakfast was lovely, only criticism is the coffee was a little weak for my tastes!

In summary a great place to stay to enjoy Oxford and the surrounding area at a great price.

Stayed the night whilst visiting family. My Mum recommended it as she lives near in Farmoor. Excellent food, really comfortable bed, the room had all the facilities required, spacious too. Breakfast was cooked to order and filling, set us up for a day shopping in Oxford. Really recommend this Inn, close to Oxford, but not too close and a regular bus service late into the night for those seeking the night life.
Excellent Beer too!
Parking a bit tight but available. It is on a main road near a toll bridge so egress in the morning can be slow during rush hour

Room Tip: Double room was great and spacious enough with all you need facility wise.

Didn't stay here, five of us just dropped in for a couple of pints and dinner. The staff were friendly, the beer was good and the food even better. They had a game casserole on special, which was excellent, and my daughter had a steak which again was top notch. She is a student at Oxford and said that she had been out to places there that charged three times the price for something half as good.
