A group of four of us visited The Monkton Inn on Wednesday last week, the pub was busy for a mid - week night (a good sign). We were greeted politely, shown to our table, ordered drinks (which arrived promptly). We had a selection of starters including carpaccio of beef (amazing), king prawn cocktail, tapas and soup - sweet pepper... More

I went to the Monkton for a wedding reception 2 weeks ago. The Monkton is in a lovely countryside setting with plenty of tables outside as well as in. The food was good and the service was exceptional. Along with a fabulous hog roast in the evening and an excellent band booked for the occasion we all had a wonderful... More

My husband and I were looking for a relaxed wedding reception. We wanted the same location from the wedding breakfast, through to the evening party. The location and food key to our requirements. We were not disappointed, Val and Peter (landlady & lord), were so accommodating from the first meeting to the day of the race. The location is a... More

Having found this when searching for somewhere to eat whilst on a short break, we were not disappointed. Excellent beer garden, friendly, good honest food and service, a hidden gem. We returned for a second time and were equally impressed. We will revisit again when we are in the area. Thank you to the owners and their staff for making... More

Booked The Monkton for an 18th family birthday meal based on really excellent feedback on Trip Advisor as well as experiences of others who had been there before. Our expectations were high. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. Durban curry was tasteless, as was Kingklip. Steak was cold. Veggies were uninspiring. Starters were fine. It was the mains that really let... More

Having driven past this pub a number of times we eventually got around to going in for a meal last week. We are both fussy about where and what we eat, and finding a pub that can please us was becoming difficult..... Well the Monkyon Inn did the job!! Lovely landlord and landlady, very friendly, very helpful and eager to... More

With 2 girls serving a busy pub inside and out we feared the worse, but they did a fantastic job as did the kitchen. A menu that will keep you going back and service and food that will not disappoint.

We go to The Monkton Inn 4 or 5 times a year as we know we will always have a good meal. We went last night with family and were not disappointed. All of us had a perfect meal. I decided to try ostrich on the chiefs recommendation and it was delicious. Staff are lovely and friendly and service is... More

We visited purely on other Tripadvisor reviews and to be fair, as strangers to the area without phones or satnav, it took a bit of finding. As expected it turned out to be more gastro pub than pub, and even though we hadn't pre booked (Sunday evening) we were warmly greeted, seated and had drinks and menus in our hands... More
