Booked the Monkton Inn for Sunday lunch and we weren't disappointed. Delicious food, with lovely rare roast beef and great beer. Lovely service from Landlady and her waiting staff. Very accommodating for children. We will definitely come again. Thanks

We felt very welcomed as soon as we set foot through the door. It has a wonderful atmosphere and the staff were very friendly, attentive with a good sense of humour. The food was great, my entire family enjoyed their wide variety of food. Plus, bonus friendly cat! Thank you so much. We will certainly be back again soon and... More

We took a group of 14 of us to the Monkton Inn for Christmas lunch; the food was great, the service impeccable, all in all thoroughly recommended.

Customer service on point. Delicious food. I take a disabled gentleman out for lunch once a week and Val is the only person so far who speaks to him, and not through me. Excellent! We'll be back!

I was looking for somewhere to meet up with good friends approximately halfway between Bristol and Exeter. TripAdvisor came into its own - recommending The Monkton Inn - and with a South African twist fitted really well with my friends time in Jo'Burg. West Monkton is a beatiful little village just past North Petherton. The staff were very friendly and... More

Food wasn't very fresh tasting and waitress was rude to my mother because she didn't speak the best English. Have been before with friends and had a better experience then this one.

We booked on a Sunday and had to specify what food we wanted, if weren't having the roast. 2 of our party had the roast dinner and the roast potatoes were hard and appeared to be leftover. Definitely not freshly prepared. They did offer to provide new potatoes or chips, but roast was the obvious choice and we couldn't wait,... More
