Seven of us went to the Monkon Inn for lunch. Food good and very reasonably priced, service quick and friendly. The only downside was the limited and disappointing choice of real ales.

Couldn't agree more with 'anontaunton'. Although have been here a few times and the food has always been good, the waiting staff lovely and the prices reasonable, the last time I went the manager was unnecessarily abrupt and rude. I'm not asking for redcarpet treatment, but on my last visit he was actually quite offensive - perhaps I had previously mistaken him as characterful and dour. Sadly, having been to many pubs in the locailty, I do still think they have the best on offer in terms of food - good beer selection too - but I won't be visiting again.

Anontaunton in now not only promoting his/her own pub with over optomistic views of their own pub, but is now stooping so low as to slag off rival pubs too.
This pub is basic "what you see is what you get" sort of pub, and as such very much better than the Maypole, (check out their reviews)

Went for lunch with a friend today, and was quiet shocked at The Monkton Inn. A rude man greeted us with 'Have you booked' and on answering no he tutted. It would have been alright if at half past one and the place was full but sadly not.
Three other tables eating. We sat and ordered drinks very quickly, ate and left.
The food was nothing special for a 'Gastro' pub, a pint of Guiness is 3.65!
Will not go back as our meal was rushed and it seemed if we were interupting an easy lunchtime session.

Heard great reviews but was a little disappointed. Nice prices for gastropub food but portion sizes fairly small and lacked any wow factor. Waiting staff seemed very stressed, bar staff run off feet, although wine list not bad and choice of beers on tap pleasant enough . Maybe it was an off night, would like to give them the benefit of the doubt.
