The Langton Arms an attractive 17th century thatched inn occupies a peaceful spot in the centre of Tarrant Monkton next to the church. Tarrant Monkton is a small thatched Dorset hamlet nestling in the Tarrant Valley surrounded by some of the most spectacular countryside in England which has changed little since it was immortalised in the novels of Thomas Hardy at the turn of the century. The Langton Arms is a free house run with true care and offers a fine selection of drinks including an ever-changing supply of outstanding real ales. The Inn is renowned for its excellent food and offers a wide variety of interesting homemade dishes including vegetarian meals at value for money prices. We serve food all day at weekends in the front bar from 11.30am to 10.00pm on Saturdays and 12.00pm to 9.00pm on Sundays. We have 10 guest rooms including Taddlestones Cottage. There are six guest rooms built in rustic brick around an attractive courtyard . Plus four rooms in the beautiful neighbouring cottage Taddlestones. Our rooms are furnished to a high standard and have full en suite bathrooms colour televisions and tea/coffee making facilities. You may specify at the time of booking whether you require a twin double or family room. The Langton Arms is so much more than a pub with award winning menus excellent accommodation conference facilities a civil wedding license and a caring team of staff it offers the warmest of welcomes.

2/9/11 I have eaten several times at the Langton Arms over a period of 5 years and each time the food has been good but this time I was not at all impressed! Firstly very disappointed with the menu choice and secondly with our meals (4 of us).The meal which was a main course and 3 desserts and a bottle of house wine, two beers, a coke, and a glass of house wine cost us £100 (tip included.

Sea bass fillets were overcooked and dry, battered fish was over-battered, and 2 dishes of Thai Green curry were very small portions - just 3 pieces of chicken arranged on the plate covered with the curry sauce. 2 creme brulee were average and the sherry trifle had too much cream.

I won't be back here for dinner but may try the lunch. Avoid the langton Arms when the steam fayre nearby is on. The kitchen obviously can't cope when the place is busy.
