The Talbot Hotel is situated in the centre of the picturesque, stone built, town of Oundle Northamptonshire and is close to the beautiful St Peters and Most Holy Name of Jesus churches. The hotel is licensed for civil weddings in both the timber panelled Whitwell Room (maximum 70 guests) or in the Westgate Suite (maximum 100 guests). The Westgate Suite has its own bar and provides direct access to our Secret Garden. The hotel provides an historical setting for your wedding but its layout and features also make it a pleasant and relaxing environment for your guests. We think this is an important aspect of a wedding venue. We were rated Wedding Dates leading Northamptonshire Wedding Venue in 2014. Please note due to increasing demand early booking is advisable.
