A day we will cherish forever
Venue Service

By Cat and Phil, on 09 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

We got married at The Talbot last month and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. It was perfect. Krystyna, the wedding co-ordinator, made us feel at ease instantly. As a woman who manages events for a living, I have high expectations and a tendency to want to manage all the details but I knew from the first meeting with Krystyna that we need not worry about anything. All of the staff were incredibly attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The majority of our guests (60) stayed overnight. The feedback on the rooms was wholly positive and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the restaurant overlooking their beautiful garden the next morning. All in all, a wonderful experience and a day we will cherish forever. Thank you Krystyna and the team for helping us create some very special memories.

Day was everything we had dreamed of and more
Venue Service

By Amy and Matt, on 22 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

The reception for our daughter’s Wedding was held at the Talbot last Saturday and day was everything we had dreamed of and more. From the first time we met Krystyna, the Event’s Manager we felt totally confident that everything would be done to make the day very special. We were made to feel that our daughter’s wedding was the most important date in her diary nothing was too much trouble. The function rooms and courtyard at The Talbot are lovely and have so much atmosphere making it perfect place for a wedding. The food was all delicious and the staff were all efficient and very pleasant ensuring our guests were well looked after. Thank you to Krystyna and all the staff at The Talbot we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

Absolutely amazing
Venue Service

By Heidi and Chris, on 10 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2018

Absolutely amazing!! Krystyna and the team helped us over the course of a year to create the most magical day for our friends and family. They host numerous weddings every week yet they still made ours feel like the most important event they were organising, everything was very personal and no request was too much trouble. I would highly recommend the talbot for your special day, it’s the most beautiful venue with amazing staff.

Highly recommend the venue
Venue Service

By Jen and Phil, on 03 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2018

After a couple of initial bouts of miscommunication in the early wedding prep, we have to say that we had a wonderful wedding day at The Talbot. Russell was an absolute gem on the day - nothing was a problem or issue at all. He knew his job inside out and went out of his way to make sure that we and our guests had everything that was needed, and were where we needed to be. He even brought me a bucket of ice for my feet as my wedding shoes were aching on a particularly hot day, and put aside a plate of dinner for my toddler that didn't want to eat. The venue was decorated perfectly by Ether Events , and the staff were happy and helpful. The gorgeous, lit courtyard was a beautiful alternative, and another way to mingle with our guests in the evening. We are so grateful for all the help received from Russell and Krystyna, and highly recommend the venue.

What a wonderful day we had at the Talbot Inn
Venue Service

By Loraine and Alan, on 13 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

What a wonderful day we had at the Talbot Inn our wedding. Russel, our toast master was amazing he was so great and made the day go so well. The food wow! Most of our guests remarked on the wonderful lamb shanks, they were so tender and so big everyone enjoyed the food. The rooms were very good, we stayed the night before it was so hot, but the staff gave us fans in our rooms! Would recommend The Talbot Inn for your wedding venue it was beautiful. Many thanks to all the great staff who helped out to make our day so perfect.

By Jess and Mark, on 31 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2018

This is the best wedding venue ever! So romantic, and utterly beautiful. Krystyna and Russell you were amazing. We felt so special and cared for. We honestly couldn't have wished for a better day. Every last detail was taken care of and no query too small. Thank you for everything. We highly recommend The Talbot Inn to everyone for a special event or the perfect romantic getaway!

So happy we chose The Talbot
Venue Service

By Gemma and Jason, on 01 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2018

Me and my husband was so happy we chose the Talbot inn for our wedding. It's such a gorgeous venue, the food is amazing and such lovely staff. Krystyna was amazing and always quick at emailing me back when I needed to ask any questions. Russell was great on the day of our wedding; explained what I had to do step by step and made me feel relaxed. He was amazing with my 8 year old son who was nervous walking me down the aisle and doing a speech. We couldn't of asked for a better and special day. Every one said how beautiful the venue is. We will definitely be visiting the Talbot Inn soon.

Would recommend to anyone

We had our Wedding here (15.07.2018) and it was absolutely amazing. The venue is stunning, the staff are all very professional, polite and couldn’t be more helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

Best day of my life!
Venue Service

By Nicole and Daniel, on 01 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

We got married at the Talbot Inn, July 2018 and it was the most amazing venue. Intimate and characterful. Krystyna was lovely and made the planning stress free - she is very organised and the whole team were extremely friendly. Russel was also amazing on the day, again very friendly and well organised, made everything run very smoothly. The food was INCREDIBLE!!! And the hog roast in the evening was even better! We did get married on the hottest day of the year and it was very hot in the venue while saying our vowels and eating, and also the rooms were hot to sleep in at night, however on the whole, it was the best day of my life and I’ll never forget the people who helped that happen- thank you everyone at the Talbot Inn!! Mr & Mrs Wise ??

I would highly recommended The Talbot
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
