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 (a talbot is an extinct hound). Arkell's bought the pub in 1997. 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 proudly presents a mouth-watering menu of freshly prepared fair, is one you'll find easy to find but hard to leave. - Modern en-suite accommodation - 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 - Newly re-furbished bar and restaurant - Genuine character with exposed beams running throughout - Dogs welcome - Plentiful car parking available

Delightful Old World Pub

Food: Evening meal great, breakfast less so, spoilt by some inferior ingredients.

Beverages: Great real ales, good range. Drinks provided in bedroom excellent

Accommodation: Good, but spoilt by very mouldy shower, which we would not use, as health hazard. The inn is lovely, and very atmospheric. Staff attitude variable, from really personable to rather couldn't care less. Would we stay again. Yes. But we hope the quality control heeds the negative bits. Good value for money.
