The staff were very attentive and good but not intrusive. The food was very good and tasty, well presented. The restaurant was very pleasant, plenty of parking space. All in all well done and we will be back.

After holding a funeral at the local church the obvious choice for food and drink afterwards was the Monkton Inn. Peter and Vals hospitality and their range of food was excellent, our family could not have wished for any more. Many people who attended from far away commented what a lovely pub in a beautiful location.

The lamb main course was fantastic and cooked to perfection. The staff are friendly and polite.If there's one pub in somerset you've got to try... More

However the deserts at £5 each min was quite frankly appalling ........supermarket packet meringues with whipped cream and TWO black currants and ONE blackberry ... did not live up to the... More

Locally sourced meat, fish and vegetables - all cooked to perfection, and lovely after meal chat with the owners this evening. We'll return regularly to this Somerset gem.

This was our first visit to the Monkton Inn, but it will definitely not be our last. We were fortunate to attend on the first of the Thursday 'Steak Nights' where the steak is brought to your table for you to choose which type, and how much of it you want. Having recently been to 2 very high quality steak... More

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Monkton Inn. The proprietors, Peter & Val, were friendly and professional and worked very hard to ensure we had a great day. The food is excellent and the springbok casserole is a MUST!! Highly recommended.
