Venue Overview

New Strret, Oundle

The Talbot Hotel is a beautiful Coaching Inn in the heart of Oundle, near Peterborough and Northampton. We can offer tailor-made packages to suit all your needs and would love to discuss this further with you.


The Talbot Hotel is situated in the centre of the picturesque, stone built town of Oundle Northamptonshire and is close to the beautiful St Peters and Most Holy Name of Jesus churches.

The hotel is licensed for civil weddings in both the timber panelled Whitwell Room (maximum 70 guests) or in the Westgate Suite (maximum 100 guests). The Westgate Suite has its own bar and provides direct access to our Secret Garden. The hotel provides an historical setting for your wedding but its layout and features also make it a pleasant and relaxing environment for your guests. We think this is an important aspect of a wedding venue. We were rated Wedding Dates leading Northamptonshire Wedding Venue in 2014. Please note due to increasing demand early booking is advisable. 

The Talbot boasts 34 beautifully designed bedrooms. We offer a selection of Classic, Feature and Deluxe rooms, one of which includes a four poster bed. All of our rooms have quality linen, free WiFi access and complimentary tea, coffee, mineral water and biscuits. Being a Coaching Inn, each room is uniquely styled, individually designed and steeped in history. We have dog friendly rooms available and a private car park at the rear of the Inn, helping ensure a relaxed experience for your guests. We can offer a number of our bedrooms at a negotiated rate for your guests.

Talbot Hotel review

After looking at and checking several venues for our civil partnership in March 2014 we decided on The Talbot Hotel in Oundle. We wanted a venue that had character and would be flexible and welcoming to our needs. We had two meetings with the manager, Bruno, before we made

our choice of venue. We were concerned that as we were only 16 in number The Talbot may not have been appropriate for a small group and we may not have received the personal service a large party may have received. We are delighted to say that our concerns were inappropriate.

From the very start of our planning (which was only 2 months earlier) we could not have received a better service. Every possible option was offered and our own individual requests were totally met. We used the Whitwell room for our service. Drinks to follow were provided in the Snug. Our meal was then served in the Whitwell room and we spent the rest of the evening there. The rooms worked great for what we needed.

With regard to the menu we had a great selection to choose from. We had very mixed dietary requirements for such a small group. Not only were all the requirements totally met, but each guest still had an option of three dishes within their dietary group. Even the Parmesan cheese was replaced with a vegetarian option. All the meals looked good, were served at the appropriate temperatures and tasted good. We had asked for leisurely service so our meal did not appear to be rushed in any way. This was achieved. All our guests commented on how much they had enjoyed the meal, every aspect of it.

The service from the staff was just great. They looked and acted professional, but they were friendly and personable. You do expect staff to be friendly and efficient, it is their job, but it actually seemed like the staff cared and enjoyed serving us in whatever area was there job. Nothing was too much trouble and really we could not think of anything we would have liked the staff to have done differently.

We all stayed the night at The Talbot. We had booked the 4 suites, and 3 regular rooms. Although we were all local, staying on site was great. The accommodation was perfect. It was a bonus to be able to enjoy breakfast together the next morning.

The only thing we should have done differently was to have asked in advance for the dining room to have had a table to seat 16 at an arranged time for breakfast so we could have been together. When we did go in for breakfast we were spread round on different tables. The breakfast food was very good and it was a lovely way to end our weekend.

We have been totally delighted with every aspect of our event and are very happy that we chose The Talbot Hotel in Oundle. Not only did The Talbot meet our expectations, it exceeded them. We received a beautifully tailored event that suited our needs. We would like to offer a very sincere thank you to Bruno and his whole team; you really did do an excellent job. We would love to come back and do the whole thing again.

We had our wedding in August 2013 at the Talbot hotel. The day went so well as all staff were so helpful, and went out of their way to make the day extra special. The whole thing was very reasonable on price and it was a 5 star venue. The hotel was beautiful, especially as it was summer and we was

able to use the garden area. The food was michelin style in both our eyes and many guests were amazed by the food. I would highly recommend this place as a wedding venue!

We got married in October 2013 at the talbot hotel in oundle. I have to start with the staff, who honestly made our day. A very special mention to Andrew who made our day run smoothly and without a hitch. He was on hand through the whole process and on the day when timings went off slightly (as they

do) he adjusted everything only quickly checking with us to make sure that it was ok to do so. As you will see, on your special day you can suddenly forget what you are supposed to be doing after the vows have been said and all the staff made sure everything happened around us and took all stress and worry out of our day. The grounds and rooms made a beautiful backdrop for our photos. The secluded garden was perfect for keeping all the guests together and a great area for the children to play when they got bored while everyone knew they were safe. The rooms were amazing and everyone commented on what a beautiful place it was. It is wonderful for weddings that are a little more intimate as it is just the right size for these. Honestly any request we had was organised and we couldn't have had a better day. Any time we wanted to pop in to have another look at the rooms there was no issue which made it so easy to arrange and plan decorations way before the wedding. We would recommend this venue whole heartedly as we would love for everyone to have a wedding day as memorable as ours. Thanks to all at the talbot hotel.
