To mark my long awaited return to BITE after a short hiatus, I decided to call in at The Monks Head for a swifty after work today. Parked up in the Morrisons across the road and felt obliged to make a purchase as I can't stand people who freeload in supermarket car parks. Anyway, I bought 8 hot and spicy ribs and devoured them outside the boozer, before entering with my cajun spiced chicken leg in my jacket pocket ready for post-pint sustinence. I always thought this pub was quite rough, but it is actually very pleasant and "old" inside, lots of interesting things on the walls and a massive open fire that looked like it had been used recently. 1 small room, Nice and cosy inside, especially on an evening. I sauntered to the bar and was disappointed to see only Greene King IPA available on cask, but I was gasping for refreshment after the wings were spicier than expected so ordered it without hesitation. While stood at the bar, I was badgered by what I assume is the pub dog; I don't have any time for dogs really so I have no idea what breed it was, however I don't mind pub dogs as a rule so didn't make a fuss. This hound wouldn't leave me alone though, and I realized it was because of the chicken leg I had in my pocket - the dog was going bananas. I fooled the dog and quickly made my way over to a welcoming table, wedging myself in so it couldn't get near me. My pint was very enjoyable in fact, something I rarely say about Greene King IPA, and I supped it in about 10 minutes. It was time to leave, and I am happy to report that my chicken leg was quite superb.

nice oldy worldy pub but mainly full of men we need single woman of all ages to help brighten up the place and for romance since most pubs are closing and at 55 a little to old to go to clubs, it would be nice to meet some single woman from in and around Larfield. the beer is good as well, also the garden is lovely, parking a problem but use Morrison opposite.

popped in to the Monks head on a Saturday afternoon, from what i remember of the quaint little pub a few years ago that had great service and good food and was welcoming, all that is well and truly past. stood at the bar for about 10 mins while the rather unsightly staff possibly the managers had coversations with rather grotesque people sitting at the bar.. I don't like being ignored at the best of times but more so when I want to buy a pint !! we madev a hasty retreat feeling very disappointed..... I WOULD STRONGLY SUGGEST MISSING THIS PUB NOW AT ALL COSTS JUST TO AVOID BEING DISAPPOINTED.. A real shame because this place used to be a real gem of a country pub.
