Positive Reviews

Pleasant friendly pub with comfy rooms

Guests have described The Talbot Inn close to Oxford and Witney as a lovely rustic looking English pub that serves good traditional pub fare and offers comfortable accommodation as well. People on business stay overs as well as leisure travellers have good things to say about the B&B, describing it as charming and quaint. The rooms are comfortable and the refurbished rooms have a lot of character felt guests.

Great for exploring the Thames path

Located on a Thames tributary, the B&B is ideally located for exploring the Oxford-Witney area and the Thames path felt guests. Overlooking the river, the B&B has a river deck and views that guests are appreciative of.

Great food, ale and service

Guests describe the food as excellent traditional pub fare with excellent beers from Arkells of Swindon. Mentioning members of the staff by name, guests have described the service as efficient, charming, polite and fun. The staff is friendly and welcoming not only of guests but their dogs as well.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathroom

Two of the budget pub rooms at The Talbot Inn have a shared bathroom, which some guests found not to be to their liking.

Rooms above the bar

Guests have also warned against the rooms above the bar, since they tend to get noisy. The annex rooms overlooking the road also have less favourable mentions.

Could be better

Some guests felt that the B&B has a lot of unrealised potential. With some imagination and investment, the establishment could be a lot better than it is currently.
