About the hotel

Steeped in history, The Talbot is a fascinating place where details are recounted in a plaque in the bar. There was a building on this site as long ago as 1376 and the building was originally used as a wharf where goods to be moved down the river were loaded. It has been a pub since at least 1774.

In those days it was called The Horse and Jockey but was re-named in 1836 to The Talbot which is an extinct breed of hound. Today The Talbot is a one-bar pub with a partitioned restaurant area and great care has been taken not to spoil the pub's genuine character whenever it has been modernised. The exposed beams are original, as are many other parts of the building. This beautiful Oxfordshire pub, which offers its guests a hearty menu of decent home cooked food and great beers, wines and other bar drinks is easy to find but hard to leave. - Eight Modern en-suite rooms in a peaceful Wharf side lodge - Three simple rooms in the original building which have been recently refurbished - Traditional Arkells Ales served straight from the barrel - Excellent links to Oxford and the A40, A34 and A420 - Traditional freshly prepared home-cooked food - Serving locals since 1774, some are still here!! - Cosy bar and restaurant - Genuine character with exposed beams running throughout - Dogs welcome - Plentiful car parking available - On the Thames path

Overnight Eynsham

Enjoyed a good night sleep in comfortable accommodation and had a great evening meal, cow pie, and a good breakfast.

Excellent value and very friendly and helpful staff. I will return.

Great breakfast, good room, ok pub, bad organisation

I specifically booked a room with a double bed, but when my husband and I arrived we were shown several rooms with single beds by a member of staff who clearly didn't know which room had which kind of bed.

He did offer to push the beds together, but we weren't keen on that. About half an hour later, while we were having a drink in the pub and trying to decide what to do, a person who I think is the manager came to see us to offer to push the beds together. when we said we were thinking of going elsewhere, she said we would be charged the full price of the night and that in any case most hotels push single beds together to make double beds. That may be true, but it does make a difference and out stay was less enjoyable because of it. At no point did the manager suggest a discount or try to see our pint of view, although she did offer us a free drink when we agreed to stay. Also, the next day, another member of staff came into the room while we were preparing to leave, within the time agreed over breakfast, and said he didn't realise the room was let. In short, a good value room - nice and big with a decent bathroom - in a reasonable, but rather shabby pub with a great English breakfast served with a smile, spoiled by frankly poor organisation/management. Also, the hotel is on a very busy road, which didn't bother us, but could be problem for some.
