Venue Service

By Jayne and Jim, on 03 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

we have just had the most amazing wedding at the Talbot Hotel in Ripley, all thanks to the amazing staff at The talbot. Our wedding coordinator Krystyna is simply amazing, nothing was too much trouble, always at the end of the phone to answer any questions, gave us plenty of advice and tips and help with planning our special day. Russel our toast master and everything else as this man can seriously multi task!! Russel was just incredible on the day, our day flowed like clockwork because of him, I can’t thank you enough. He is so enthusiastic and so much fun. We had a wonderful meal all our guests commented on how good the food was, special thanks to the chef and his team as it can’t of been easy cooking for such a large event on an extremely hot day. Fabulous friendly team of waiters who worked so hard all day and into the evening, much appreciated. The Talbot sparkled especially into the evening, as the canopy of twinkling lights were switched on in the courtyard, just beautiful. I had the bridal suit very special indeed, very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommended The Talbot to anyone planning a wedding or any event. Thank you so much to you all at The Talbot

From start to finish the team were fantastic
Venue Service

By Sarah and Steve, on 28 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

From start to finish the team at the Talbot were fantastic, Krystyna was supportive and informative and most of all patient when dealing with my queries. Russell was brilliant on the day as was the whole team. The venue is great and we loved every minute of our day that just went to fast in the end! Thanks to everyone.

Nothing was too much effort for the staff
Venue Service

By Koralie and Daniel, on 28 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018

We recently had our wedding at The Talbot Inn and cannot thank everyone enough. Nothing was too much effort for the staff. From start to finish, Krystyna was so helpful and listened to our requests with no problem. Russell, our toast master, put us at ease on the day and was very helpful. They both made the day run so smoothly and our relaxed party theme was just what we wanted. We did not have to lift a finger on the day. The venue is stunning and we got loads of great pictures. We highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a relaxed day.

Amazing professional service from start to finish
Venue Service

By Brittany and Adam, on 06 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

We got married at The Talbot end of May 2018, and had amazing professional service from start to finish. We had a music festival theme and Krystyna and Russell were both excellent in assisting us with the planning all the way up to the day of. The staff made sure every little thing went off without a hitch and were so accommodating and approachable. We had our ceremony in the barns, which was such a beautiful room to get married in, and the reception in the Wisley. Very good value for money and the best wedding BBQ we have ever eaten! Would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

Cannot recommend enough
Venue Service

By Laura and Liam, on 13 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2018

Krystyna and the team were fantastic, guiding us through the planning process. She really helped to make the day special. The team on the night quickly fixed issues, including producing the missing side for the vegetarian food in a matter of minutes. The venue itself is a gorgeous setting for wedding celebrations, couldn't recommend enough.

We had the best day of our life!
Venue Service

By Jennifer and Sam, on 22 May 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018

My husband and I got married at the Talbot Inn on Easter weekend in 2018. We booked the venue in 2016. Krystyna, the wedding organizer, went through the journey with us. We would have not done it without her help! Krystyna has been very friendly, helpful, and calm! She made the preparation stress free! The whole area in Talbot Inn is quirky, comfortable, and homey! There is plenty of space. The day before and after the wedding, we spent a lot of time with our guests in the bar area at the Talbot. Although the bar area is not exclusive for us but it felt really private. For the wedding, we had our own area for food and drinks. It was good to have everyone in one place so we didn't have to walk around to find our guests. The venue is big enough to have 66 guests for the day and 90 guests for the evening. Richard, who's our wedding host, kept everything on schedule and organised. The food was excellent - for both wedding breakfast and evening buffet! Both of us love the Talbot Inn! We had a great day with everyone's help in Talbot Inn! Can't thank you enough Talbot Inn...especially to Krystyna!

They made our wedding day perfect
Venue Service

By Lisa and James, on 23 May 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018

This is a very special venue with a very special team who made our wedding day everything we wanted it to be, and more. It really was our perfect day. The team at The Talbot pulled out all the stops to make our day so special and - more importantly - stress free. They were wonderful and we would strongly recommend the Talbot as a fantastic place to get married.

The most exquisite day of our lives
Venue Service

By Deborah and Mark, on 24 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017

We would like to thank Krystyna, Russell and all the wonderful team who worked so diligently to make our wedding the most exquisite day of our lives. It is a beautiful and historic building full of character, intimacy and charm. A location that is quaint and rural yet easily accessible by road and rail for our planned guests, with ample parking and accommodation so that we and our party could seamlessly join our whole day together in one venue. We simply cannot praise you all enough. Especially praise goes to Krystyna for the understanding and sensitivity she showed when, only days after we had initially met her, we were hit by the sudden decline in health, and subsequent loss of Mark’s dear father. But through it all, was the calm, gentle and assured guidance of Krystyna, helping to pull us through these times, and bring us to what can only be described as the most joyous, delicious and precious day we could ever have hoped for. Everyone involved in our day added a special sparkle, but the gem in the crown was certainly the fabulous Krystyna, Russell and the team of the Talbot. Russell was, it must be said, the most admirably competent and engaging master of ceremonies and daytime organising absolute whiz. Many of our guests commented on his good humour and ‘nothing-was-too-difficult’ attitude. The rest of the team were equally attentive, kind, willing to please and genuine people. Embarking upon a journey at the Talbot for the most spectacular and memorable day of our lives, with staff who anticipated our every need, and that of our guests. You all began our married lives as Mr and Mrs Harrington, and we will never forget it. Thank you is simply not enough.

Thanks to The Talbot for an amazing experience!
Venue Service

By Alena and Phil, on 15 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2017

Me and my wife selected The Talbot for our wedding and we were so happy to have done so. Despite being forced to organise things at such short notice due to circumstances beyond our control, Krystyna and her team were so very flexible at accommodating all of our wishes - keeping the whole process stress free for us. Then on the day, the service staff were great, and extremely friendly. Our MC, Russell, was perfect, helping everything run smoothly and being able to adapt to every problem that we seemed to encounter. Many thanks to everyone at The Talbot for such an amazing experience! :)

I will never forget how perfect our day was
Venue Service

By Kirsty and Simon, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2017

We had our Wedding at the Talbot on the 26/10 and it was the best day of our lives. Krystyna the Wedding Coordinator is a perfectionist which is what you want when you are planning a wedding. She is extremely kind hearted and nothing was too much trouble, she went above and beyond during all stages of the planning which made me feel reassured that our day was going to be everything we had dreamed of. The day went perfectly without any problems, this was due to being in the capable hands of Russell who looked after us and our guests on the day. He was so much fun and at the same time clearly very experienced at what he does. He made sure the day flowed and once again nothing was too much trouble. All of the staff I came into contact with before the big day and during the wedding were polite and chatty. The food we had the night before in the bar was tasty and the Wedding Breakfast was even better. We had so many compliments about the food which made us really happy. The rooms we had were lovely and clean, the beds were like sleeping on a cloud. I will never forget how perfect our day was and this down the team who work so hard and are brilliant at what they do. The venue is perfect for what we wanted and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thank you Krystyna, Russell and the rest of the team for the best day ever!

We can honestly say it was an absolute dream
Venue Service

By Ana Maria and Anthony, on 23 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

We had our wedding at the Talbot on October and we can honestly say it was an absolute dream. Right from the start we had the best experience worn Krystyna, the head of sales and then onto the actual wedding day where Russel and his team did an incredible job. No issue was too big and all our needs were met without even realising it was being done which meant we could just relax and enjoy the day. The atmosphere and the food were key for us and both were outstanding at the Talbot. We would throughly recommend this venue if you are after a relaxed but high standard wedding were the people and the food are the main focus! All of the wedding guests repeatedly told us what a great wedding it was and a lot of that was down to the staff making it run so smoothly and with great warmth!
