We have visited Stephan Langton over the years and decided to pay a Saturday night visit. The food was excellent and the service friendly. We will be visiting again soon. Good choice of food with spotless premises.

Had a fabulous catch up with a friend of mine here - delicious lunch and lovely ales on tap. Staff were friendly and efficient and kept us well looked after throughout our (very!) leisurely lunch. The pub and surrounds are gorgeous.
