We have lived in Taunton for 15 years and never found this restaurant - so much wasted opportunity on our part. This fabulous restaurant is in a beautiful location and has a lovely garden.. The interior is lovely and we sat in the Snug with our dog welcomed too. There were two vegetarians in our party who were very pleasantly... More

Visited for lunch on Sunday and we had a pleasant welcome on arrival. Food was superb and staff efficient and polite. Landlady made us feel very welcome and our overall experience was superb. One of the best rural pubs we have visited in the area and will definitely be returning.

we regularly visit when cycling on a Sunday. Pete and Val always make the effort to come and say hi even if busy which is always. Great beers, food cooked perfectly. Had the roast beef which was excellent and served in good time. Partner had fish and chips which she said was lovely. Waitresses are brilliant and friendly. Highly recommend.... More

Visited for the first time and was very impressed. Pub is only 3 miles from Taunton and is tucked away 1/2 a mile off the main road on a leafy lane. Good sized secluded garden and plenty of parking the Inn was welcoming, light and airy. Menu was simple but exotic - you can have a Croc burger or Springbok... More

The Monkton Inn has all the ingredients for a great pub but is poorly let down by the obnoxious landlady. On our visit she loudly proclaimed "since taking over this place, my opinion of the human race has plummeted". She spent the entire time bossing a poor new waiter around, who was clearly terrified of her abrupt manner; and so... More
