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 ... Read more

It was an incredible day, Russell and the guys were absolutely brilliant and kept us all very, very hydrated. Thank you to Russell for everything, it went without a hitch! We will definitely be back.

We had the most amazing day Saturday, we want to do it all over again! The team were great and Russell was absolutely amazing, I can not thank him enough he really went out of his way and then some and made us all giggle about Michael! It will be something to remember. All my family said how fantastic he was and how attentive he was. I have to say I felt very special, I didn't have to worry about anything either which was great. After forgetting things on Friday and suddenly realizing I didn't bring the bridesmaid dresses!! And my father in law being late, Russell was great and made sure I didnt worry about anything and we had ... Read more

We got married on 20 September, Krystina was so helpful and we felt very special. The decor by Ether Events was outstanding, the whole day was wonderful. Rooms booked and our guests enjoyed themselves, would really recommend the venue. In fact we intend to celebrate our first anniversary there.
by Cat and Phil on Tue, 9th October, 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 ...

What a wonderful day we had at the Talbot Inn for 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 Heidi and Chris on Fri, 10th August, 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.
by Gemma and Jason on Wed, 1st August, 2018
Me and my husband were so happy we chose the Talbot inn for our wedding. It's such a gorgeous venue, the food is amazing and such lovely staff. Kristyna 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 have asked for a better and special day. Everyone said how beautiful the venue is. We will definitely be visiting the Talbot Inn soon.
by Jess and Mark on Tue, 31st July, 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!
by Jayne and Jim on Tue, 3rd July, 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 ... Read more

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 too fast in the end! Thanks to everyone.
by Koralie and Daniel on Thu, 28th June, 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.
by Laura and Liam on Wed, 13th June, 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.
by Lisa and James on Mon, 11th June, 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.
by Brittany and Adam on Wed, 6th June, 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.
by Jennifer and Sam on Tue, 22nd May, 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 ... Read more

We cannot recommend The Talbot and its fabulous Staff enough. It was the perfect venue for our September Wedding. We couldn’t have wished for a better Wedding Coordinator in Krystyna. Living 70 miles away, we were totally dependent on help and advice and communications were great from booking the Wedding to the day itself. Krystyna is incredibly kind, helpful and patient with a wealth of experience and a true professional. She clearly loves and cares about her work and puts a lot of effort in creating the very Wedding you are looking for. Flexibility was key to us regarding the menu and accommodation for our guests, both the night before and the day of the Wedding and Krystyna never failed ... Read more

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! ... Read more

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! :)
by Kirsty and Simon on Mon, 30th October, 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 ... Read more

We had our wedding at the Talbot in August this year. We hired the barn which is totally gorgeous, it has beautiful beams and when it's dressed with the fairy lights and wicker hearts and lanterns it looks stunning! A beautiful room for a wedding ceremony! The bar area in the barn is perfect for drinks after the ceremony. Our guests also enjoyed sitting in the cobbled courtyard outside for drinks as it was a sunny day. The venue is full of character and provided a great atmosphere for our wedding. Krystyna did an amazing job making sure everything was organised for us. She was brilliant in terms of answering all my questions via calls and emails and responded very ... Read more
by Liz and Isaac on Thu, 19th October, 2017
This is an amazing picturesque and historical place to get married in. The staff are all wonderful and make sure that your day goes smoothly and make you feel so special. I can't thank Russell and Krystyna more for their dedication and hard work during the day and evening ... whoever gets married here will have a wonderful and special unique experience.
by Lisa and Alan Thompson on Fri, 13th October, 2017
We had a March wedding breakfast and reception at the Talbot. The entire team were amazing. Especially Russell who kept the day moving and entertaining, always made sure we (bride and groom) were happy too. Thank you to the whole team for such a memorable day.
by Fran and Richard on Fri, 13th October, 2017
Great venue, fantastic food, excellent team: Krystyna and Russell and very professional organisation. Our wedding day was fantastic!I would warmly recommend this venue. Thanks for making it so special.
by Bella and Dec on Fri, 29th September, 2017
We got married at the Talbot in September 2017 and we could not have had a better day. They made all the organising beforehand so easy and stress free and the day itself went so smoothly. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and perfect to create exactly the kind of setting we wanted. We had so many of the guests come up to us and tell us how much they enjoyed the food! And a special mention must go to Russel who was our host for the day. He made the day flow faultlessly and was so lovely and attentive to us and our guests. Would 100% recommend the Talbot to anyone thinking of getting married there!
by Katherine and Simon on Mon, 25th September, 2017
We had our wedding on 9th September 2017 and can't say how wonderful it was. We have had so many compliments about the food, venue and staff. The staff really couldn't have done anymore for us and made our day all the more special. Everything ran exactly how we wanted it to and both Krystyna and Russ were amazing. If we could do it all again we would go back to the Talbot without hesitation. A big thank you to Russ and Krystyna for making our day THE BEST ever.
by Emma and Mark on Tue, 19th September, 2017
I cannot fault this hotel or the staff in any way. Krystyna the Wedding Planner is the most attentive, kind and sweetest person you will ever meet who takes her role very seriously and has a keen attention to detail. Russell our host and toastmaster organised every single detail of our day ensuring our guests knew where to go and what to do, he sorted things out that even I'd forgotten!! He can read a crowd brilliantly and will have your guests eating out the palm of his hand! The serving staff are polite, friendly and attentive and will still be wearing a smile at 2am! The food was absolutely second to none and to have all our guests comment ... Read more

Fantastic experience all round. Very helpful and patient in the lead up and very slick on the day. Excellent value for money and a beautiful all-in-one setting. We felt at ease on site and with the staff.
by Katy and Alex on Fri, 1st September, 2017
My husband and I got married at the Talbot Inn in July and it was just fantastic! Krystyna guided us through every step and made the whole planning experience a pleasure. The day itself was perfect and Russell was a fantastic Master of Ceremonies. The service was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend The Talbot Inn as a wonderful wedding venue for all future brides and grooms. Thank you for giving us the best day EVER! x
by Claire and Paul on Thu, 31st August, 2017
Amazing wedding venue and staff that nothing was to much trouble for. From the booking of the wedding right up until the day 29/07/17,we had amazing support from Krystyna and her team. Russel helped make our day one we will never forget. Can not rate the Talbot highly enough, venue perfect and amazing staff. Thank you so much
by Gemma and Jon on Tue, 25th July, 2017
I recently had my wedding reception at The Talbot, it was a great day. Throughout it all the two gentleman who were the hosts were excellent and nothing was too much for them. The food and service of the food was great and we had no problems. Everyone working that night was brilliant! Due to The Talbot being taking over we did have a few problems with co-ordinators at first. However when we had a permanent co-ordinator to talk too, she was very helpful and quick to reply to emails. The Talbot is in a lovely setting and if you want a small and lovely wedding The Talbot is the place!
by Jan and Pete on Tue, 25th July, 2017
We had a wonderful wedding at The Talbot Ripley in June 2017. The wedding planner Krystyna was very efficient and guided and helped us with our plans for the day. The Surrey Barn was decorated beautifully and was a very intimate venue - just what we wanted. The MC on the day was great and nothing was too much trouble. The food was good as were the staff. We had a perfect wedding day!
by Mel and Stu on Mon, 10th July, 2017
My husband and I married at The Talbot on 1st July 2017. Our wedding was 2 years in the planning and worth every moment of it. Kristina, Russell and the entire team were fantastic! Given we had so long to plan our wedding we knew exactly what we wanted - nothing was too much to ask of the team and they were so helpful in offering suggestions for the day and recommending suppliers as well as generally going above and beyond at any opportunity. In the run up to the and on the day itself we knew we were always in safe hands with The Talbot team! We had the most perfect day and our wedding was nothing short of ... Read more

We had our wedding on 19th May 2017. Everything from our initial viewing of The Talbot to the clearing up after the wedding could not have been better. The staff were exceptional and could not have done more to help. They carried out our day exactly as we hoped and to top it all off the food was amazing. The following day all of our decoration bits and been put together so we just had to put it in our car. We received exactly the right amount of communication from them and if ever I had a question they were quick to respond. All of this was at a very reasonable price. The total of our wedding was less then ... Read more

The Talbot hosted our wedding on 30/04/17. We had Krystyna as our planner and Russell as MC. The service we received from both was amazing. From food tasting, planning and the big day itself they were helpful and professional at all times. On our wedding day the staff were fantastic, always polite, smiling and friendly which was noticed not only by ourselves but by our guests also. Many of them commented how wonderful the day had been and what an exceptional venue it was. We highly recommend the venue and will definitely be back for a meal soon.
by Alex and Dave on Thu, 18th May, 2017
Talbot, Ripley - a great place to get married. The Talbot has a fantastic atmosphere. The buildings are full of character and are not soulless, like some purpose built wedding factories. The staff were great, hard working, friendly, helpful and committed to making sure we had a fantastic day. The feedback we received from our guests was they had a wonderful day with great food and surroundings. Would highly recommend and a special mention to Krystyna for all her efforts leading up to the wedding and Russell for his hard work on the day of the wedding. Thank you
by Sally and Marco Pinto on Tue, 28th March, 2017
This is a beautiful venue, especially the barn. Krystyna, our coordinator was wonderful, so helpful with every detail. Russel was fantastic at working the guests and looked after us all day. Such a friendly team. We are goung to miss them! A truly magical day from start to finish
by Maddy Bell on Wed, 15th March, 2017
Just a quick email now things have calmed down a bit to say a massive THANK YOU! We had the most amazing day and everyone commented on how smoothly it all went. The food was perfect - I think every plate was empty! Russell was an absolute super star all day and he really is a massive credit to the Talbot. Thank you for all your help in the run up to the big day, it really was appreciated and we couldn't be happier! So thank you again, I wish we could have the day all over again, it truly was everything we had hoped for and more!
by Lil and Mat on Wed, 25th January, 2017
Got married on 24th September 2016 (sorry my review is so late!) We had the most amazing day. Charlotte and Mark were brilliant - we originally had a different wedding planner that left, but Charlotte and Mark picked this up seamlessly. Everything we needed was done. The day could not have gone any better. Food was amazing, ceremony room looked beautiful, and the turn around was quick. Cannot thank the Talbot enough for making our day so wonderful :):) Would definitely recommend, and we'll be back for our anniversary!
by Helen and Jonathan Trollope on Tue, 3rd January, 2017
The Talbot hosted our NYE wedding. My husband and I are very grateful to the staff ... Mark in particular who was totally fantastic! This is a superb venue... We had the intimate ceremony we had hoped for in a beautiful setting and nothing was too much trouble. I can't recommend the Talbot highly enough.
by Rochelle and Conor Jackson on Tue, 22nd November, 2016
A huge thank you to Mark Robinson and all his staff, the hotel was beautiful, our rooms were lovely and the wedding went according to plan - what more could you ask for ! We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a wedding venue :)
