I recently paid a visit to the Monkton with my mother, it did not disappoint. The variety of food was fantastic, cooked to perfection, definitely great value for money. Service was friendly, polite and efficient, food was always served with a smile and all waitresses were happy to help.

The food was very good, interesting menu with a myriad of options. The fish pie was very good, the alligator burger equally good and salads whilst not overly appealing to look at tasted very good. The down side was the length of time it took to be served, if you are in a hurry then go elsewhere, we waited almost... More

Visited with a friend who lives locally & is a frequent visitor. Not very busy on a Tuesday lunchtime, we sat in the pleasant very large garden. Friendly & helpful staff, food was OK - I had steak & chips which was an average price I suppose, but not the best quality cut of meat. Having said that I would... More

We live locally and used to visit here fairly often, like all pubs it goes through fazes of being good and poor. We decided to visit again with some friends from Germany and I recommended the fish and chips. These have always been a little expensive for the portion size but were always very good. The last couple of times... More

Having been several times previously I was pleased to return , the ambiance is excellent with lovely out door space. The food is excellent, freshly cooked and very well presented. However on the down side, it is very over priced. My husband and I had Tai chicken curry which was, a very small portion of rice and a similar portion... More

Having frequented the Monkton several times over the past year, I felt inspired to write a review due to their unrivalled and consistent high standards. The menu is diverse and interesting and the food is always excellent, with their trio of steaks amongst the best I've eaten. The owners, Peter and Val, together with their staff, are always friendly, welcoming... More
