“Birthday Surprise Taster Trip and Stay”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Birthday present from our daughters and what an excellent choice, The staff are welcoming, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely bedroom at the front with views over the grounds and river valley. It was a good size and very clean. The surprise trip included the taster menu with wine and what a fantastic present it turned out to be, luckly our diner table was reserved with the booking. First class food and wine, an absolute joy and tribute to the chefs, first class 5* dining. We also enjoyed the 'supper club' in the bar area the following evening, great steaks and food.

Room Tip: If booking make sure you reserve a table in the restaurant at the same time, it was fully booked up...

A short stay, but one that was made special by the exceptional service and excellent GM - his attention to detail and the 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude made our stay. Our junior suite was a lovely light and well decorated room, with a great view. The hotel and grounds are well kept and I am sure that things will go from strength to strength with the new GM already making a great impression and going the extra mile - well done!

We got a great deal using a groupon voucher for afternoon tea. On arrival we were shown to a table in the lounge already set with tea crockery and the menu showing us all the lovely cakes we had coming to us. We had a choice of tea which came in a large teapot followed by the food about 10 minutes later so we didn't have to wait too long. The sandwiches consisted of 3 fingers sandwiches each made with really soft bread and delicately filled. The scones were freshly baked and there was about 4 different types of cakes, a lemon mousse type thing and another creamy lemon posset but the star was a delicious macaroon. I would have preferred just one more sandwich and maybe one less cake but no complaints. It was a lovely afternoon with delicious food, polite staff and in beautiful surroundings.

Dear F00die_Sam

Thank you for coming to visit for afternoon tea. We have recently redesigned the cakes on our afternoon tea offering, I am glad you enjoyed them.

Remember to come back in the summer to take advantage of our new garden terrace opening soon.

Best regards

This was a surprise for my 7*th birthday! And it was a very pleasant one indeed, we were welcomed and our room was well equipped and very clean. We have two elderly dogs and they were made most welcome with their own bed and water bowls. We ate in the hotel and the meal was superb, we all had different choices and each of use thoroughly enjoyed every one.
The grounds were well kept and our two dogs enjoyed lap around them, only thing missing was a doggy bin.
Staff were very attentive, though the lady / girl who took our original booking did not appear to be the sharpest knife in the draw, however all the reception staff during our visit were good.
The only minus were the towels were grey and rough on my old skin!

We will return.

Room Tip: If you want a bath room one is shower only and a wet room in every sense when the shower is on!

Dear Biddys78

Thank you for taking the time to post a review online. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the team looked after you. Good point on the doggy bin, funny it has not come up before, I shall keep an eye out for a suitable one. Sorry to read the towels where not up to standard, usually they are very soft and comforting.

We do hope to see you and the dogs again.

Best regards

After 25 years we wanted to do something special, so we booked in at the Talbot Hotel for a 'taster menu with overnight stay. We were given a free upgrade to the Houghton Suite, perhaps because it was our anniversary, I'm not sure. The room was lovely, and made us feel special. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The meal was really good, to say it was a taster menu, it certainly filled you up. I am hoping that we will make a return visit. Highly recommended.

I used a Groupon Voucher for afternoon tea a few days after Mothers day. What a lovely experience! Parking was easy in the large car park with disabled parking spaces, and a flat surface into the Hotel so it was easily accessed by my mum. The staff were very welcoming, and we had a choice of two different reserved tables for the afternoon tea. The tea consisted of 3 small but tasty sandwiches each, a scone with jam and cream and several slices of different cakes. We also had a surprise "extra" of a lemon possett dessert with strawberries and cream.The room was pleasantly busy with other residents and visitors having afternoon tea. There were menu cards available with the recipes of some of the cakes which was a nice touch. The staff showed us round the restaurant and gave us a printed lunch menu. I feel the staff worked hard to show case the Hotel and food. Well done!

We booked to stay at the Talbot Inn for a special 'James Martin Dinner'. The whole experience was fabulous and unforgettable. The accommodation was luxurious and comfortable, the staff extremely helpful and friendly and the dinner was just superb. There is a generosity about this place. Nothing is too much trouble and there are refreshing touches such as complimentary room service for tea/coffee.

The food was exceptionally good. Top class, fresh, seasonal ingredients, locally sourced and superbly cooked and presented. Portions were just right and the matched wines were perfect.

Just wish this hotel were closer to Kent but am looking for any excuse to visit again!

Oh... and.....James Martin was utterly charming and even more gorgeous in the flesh!!

Room Tip: We had Room 17 which overlooked the front of the hotel. Even though there was a car park below we w...
