What a find! On a weeks holiday and found this pub by accident. It was so good we came back 2 days later. Warm welcome, Doombar on tap and an excellent varied menu, what more would you want. With traditional decor and a warm atmosphere with well spaced tables, the Monkton Inn is ideal for a relaxing and enjoyable visit.... More

Having recently received details of their new listing we decided to visit this venue, attracted by the unusual menu and it's proximity to the M5. We were not disappointed and having been warmly welcomed and shown our table we were presented with our menus including a gluten free option, the most varied we have ever seen. The exotic choices were... More

Had a great time at the Monkton inn!! As soon as we walked in we was greeted and shown to our table. All the staff were brilliant! The food came out in good time. I tried the zebra steak, it was delicious! Lovely place with a welcoming atmosphere! Can't wait to go again! Highly recommended!

My wife and I have been here twice during our travels over the past few weeks. Its in a nice quiet setting and garden with traditional décor inside with a choice of bar area or more formal restaurant. Its very clear that the owners are keen to provide excellent service and train their younger staff accordingly. The menu is varied... More

Highly recommended, chilled atmosphere and friendly staff. Good food, more than average pub grub for sure! Will be going back ASAP. Cat is certainly not a problem :)

Popped in for lunch and was not impressed at all. Average at best. The food just about came up to scratch for a lunch. But u can't really go wrong with a sandwich. The begging cat was not pleasant trying to jump up while eating. Decor in need of a spruce just not impressed at all. Won't be rushing back.... More

Visited this pub/restaurant in late August after a recommendation from our accommodation hosts at Langhaller Manor House. At first glance the property gives an appearance of being a typical village pub lacking in impact with little outside lighting or ambience. However once inside that somewhat changes as you pass through the front bar and into the rear raised restaurant area.... More

We arrived as a party of 4 friends for lunch - 2 people really enjoyed the springbok burger, and commented the chips were nicely cooked. There were 3 vegetarian options and the mushroom tagliatelle was really lovely and full of rich flavour. The fish and Chip was also complimented by my friend who ordered it. The meals were reasonably priced,... More
