An ideal place for the first meal of our holiday, on the way from Surrey to East Devon. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. The village is quiet, off the beaten track, just the place to relax after a morning on the road.

Went again for lunch this time with friends. The service atmosphere etc was very good but this is an above averagely expensive gastropub so I would expect everything to be 'fine' at least. I did not expect underdone duck confit, overcooked pigeon breast and somewhat boring vegetables (what was the purpose of the carrot puree?). The bill was £150 for...

Dear jerryhardy A surprise to us to read your review. Your bill was £141.45 which is only £35.36 per person which included drinks on arrival, starters, main course, some desserts, coffee and more drinks. I can assure you the confit of Duck Leg was not under cooked and the pigeon breast was definitely served pink. The staff checked back with...

The Langton is a lovely traditional country pub in the village of Tarrant Monkton. We have dined there on many occasions and always found the fare in the restaurant to be of high quality. The service is attentive, too, and quite a cut above most pubs. The only (slight) criticism/opinion/observation I would make is that the chips are described as...

Dear chemistatlarge, Thank you for your kind review and your frequent visits to see us. Lovely to know that we are a cut above the rest in both food and service, we try hard to be the best.

Our party of 12 thoroughly enjoyed agreat couple of days stay. The rooms were very comfortable, the food wonderful and was matched by the attentive service. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we couldn't have wished for a better place to spend a couple of days with friends.

We visited to celebrate a special birthday. This is our second visit and once again the food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. The staff are second to none! Although not cheap, it was not extortionate and absolutely delicious. The menu was varied, with something for everyone. Defiantly worth the drive out!

Lovely day out with the Lions Club for their 44th year Chater Lunch with our Mayor as the guest of honour. Held in the function room with buffet service, ample portions of the main and dessert, an observation and not a criticism would be serving a demitasse of soup instead of a bowl which is filling and cheap, but maybe...

The ensuite room we stayed in on two occasions is very comfortable and clean and we were able to arrive very late and were still made welcome. Evening meal is superb and full English breakfast delicious. Very easy access to rooms and restaurant and car park. Beautiful countryside all around.

Coming from hectic London, a weekend in Tarrant Monkton was the perfect escape: an hour and a half outside the Big Smoke it is the quintessential village, showcasing the English countryside at it's best.
