Popped in for a pint after lunch - nice pint and a nice place. I like Ripley !!

Old coaching inn with a very rambling layout. Seating in bits and pieces through the bars. Could be an ideal old pub but it feels that the hotel side takes priority and the bars are just an adjunct. Beers: Greene King IPA & Hogsback TEA.

Good pint of TEA but otherwise rather drab experience. Didn't eat to be fair

Difficult to find anything negative (or really positive) to say about The Talbot.
It should be the best pub in Ripley. The restaurant and garden attract the better end of the punter spectrum, particularly at lunchtime. "New British" style food is pricey, Sunday roast dinner is worth a punt, the restaurant is packed out most Sundays with a good atmosphere. People like it. Generally it has a younger livelier vibe about it. Unlike The Ship and the Half Moon, both of which unfortunately have more than their quota of village idiots at times particularly in the evenings
The upstairs hotel rooms are top notch. My parents won't stay anywhere else when they visit us. The other rooms in the new building are good, but lack character. The pub has a quality feel but the bar staff lack an effective manager and the onus is usually on food and weddings in the summer, which means the average punter can have a little wait to get served often by baffled looking gap year stoner-student type bar staff.
They do sell Peroni at nearly �5 a pint, and it seems to sell well! Don't ask me why. Especially as One Stop sell it for less than two quid up the road. The other beers (t.e.a, Pride, Abbot etc are all kept well and if the weather is good, sitting in the vast outside grassy garden is as good as it gets in Ripley. Children and dogs are welcome and don't seem to get underfoot as the parents/owners seem to keep them under control generally.
Despite the crap sniping from clearly fake reviewers loyal to The Ship and others, at least it tries. They promote live music and comedy nights which could be better supported by the locals and it does its bit for local fund raising, which is worth noting. In summary, this is a Saturday/Sunday afternoon pub. Its a bit more upmarket; a class apart from the other pubs in Ripley, just needs effective bar management and a bit more investment. Best in class.

I smell a rat or is it that the staff have just found this site ( see last 3 one post wonders).
We found the place average all but the prices there are far better places to go near by.
