Excellent food and caters very well for food allergies

Been several times now and food is always high quality plus the chef always takes the trouble to customise meals to cope with my wife's allergy to dairy products.

A group of sixteen met here for a pre-ordered lunch. The day was sunny and the Monkton is set in a pretty hamlet, with plenty of parking available. The service was very helpful and pleasant and the food did not take too long to arrive. The Trinchada - slices of beef in a not too spicy sauce was generally much... More

Just had lunch at the Monkton Inn. We took our labrador and were welcomed into the bar area by the very friendly owners. The restaurant area looked immaculate with wood flooring and loads of seating outside in the garden. We elected to sit by the log burner and sat down to enjoy a lovely 3 course pub lunch with a...

Despite having booked a table had to wait some time before being acknowledged. No warm welcome. Once seated waited over half an hour for starter and then a further 40 mins for main course. Unfortunately not worth the wait..Expensive for what it was. Extremely disappointed.

We were recommended this restaurant by some friends that have lived here for longer than us. We went here for our wedding anniversary and had a really nice meal. It was steak night so that pleased my husband, and their were plenty of other options as well to tempt us back another night. The food was superb. I definitely recommend... More

My family and I booked a table at The Monkton Inn for Sunday lunch on Mother's Day. On arrival we were seated at our table, which unfortunately was directly opposite the bar and just next to the main entrance. This meant that we were constantly met by a draft and a stream of people entering the pub who then gathered... More

was delicous as usual, i would have loved to have stayed for dessert and another pint, but sadly Sunday Lunch was ruined by unruly, screaming kids just running wild, so we left and had a beer and dessert elsewhere i would have given 5 stars but i don't understand why parents cannot control the kids when people are having.

We booked The Monkton Inn for a pub lunch and were impressed as soon as we walked in the door. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and were extremely friendly and helpful. The menu was a lot more exciting and adventurous than your average 'pub', mainly due to the South African element the pub has... More
