Dined here on 17th January, 2015 - Warm and friendly greeting, the staff were cheerful and efficient, the food was to die for, will certainly be returning to this restaurant very soon. The menu was varied plenty to suit all and were asked if we would like more vegetables even though there were plenty. The puddings came with cream, custard,... More

Booked for Sunday roast on 18/12015 at 13.30. Was expecting a good meal as had read the reviews. Was very disappointed due to the lack of selection of meats, there was only beef and pork and they had run out of pork! Asked for the main ingredient of the £11 risotto and that was mushrooms! For £11!! My son and... More

Over-priced, Small Sunday Lunch menu and measley portions. Only roast beef or pork. But they had run out of pork. Mother had a Chicken salad as she wanted the pork. 4 pieces of chicken some Salad and apple for £11! Roast beef ok but nothing to write home about. Suprised it was awarded Somerset pub of the year. We certainly... More

Homely local inn with welcoming atmosphere and good food. Choice of eating in the bar or dining room We dined at the weekend before Christmas and were telephoned ahead of the day to ask if we had children in our party as they were thinking of having an entertainer. We were an all-adult group of seven, but Father Christmas visited... More

I've given this pub 5 stars mostly for the food. It was really yummy and well presented. My tips, if the owners would like them, are to perhaps consider smaller portions as i was stuffed! My husband had a really nice view of a rustic brick wall but I only saw a white wall in need of some repair at... More

The Monkton Inn provided a marvellous welcome, really good food (the steaks were out of this world for flavour and tenderness) and the wines were priced at sensible mark-ups unlike most restaurants. One of the best pub meals my family and I have enjoyed for a very long time. This is not the first time we have visited The Monkton... More

Excellent food, varied menu, great atmosphere and engaging hosts. Even took the time to come out and chat on what was a busy service. We had our desserts on the leather sofa in front of the wood burner. What a great place to spend Sunday lunch on a cold winters day.

We hadn't been to this pub for a couple of years. The food then wasn't very good so we stopped going. We decided to give it another try and were so disappointed that things hadn't changed. The barman was unfriendly and the food was bland. Won't be going there again.

We go to the Monkton whenever we are celebrating. The menu is interesting and includes South African dishes. The food is always excellent and the service good. The awards the Monkton receives are well deserved.
