The Talbot, Ripley, stands as one of the country’s most historic coaching inns and has for centuries played its part in history. It is known for providing the stage for Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton’s love affair to blossom in 1798 and originally dates back to 1453 when it was used as a coaching inn for people commuting from London to Portsmouth.

Retaining many period features, the hotel now has 43 bedrooms, 4 function rooms including our historic barn with beams – ideal for weddings and events. There is also a contemporary restaurant offering a selection of British timeless classic dishes. See for further details.
