Owners and staff very efficient and friendly. Rooms comfortable with nice large beds. Beer garden was a sun trap so a couple of cold beers after work sitting in the sun, extremely pleasant. After dark when it got too chilly to sit outside we had a couple more beers in front of the large log fire. Restaurant food excellent. I... More

I have driven past Monkton Court Hotel many times. It always looked austere and n inviting. How I missed out. Some friends asked us to join them there for a meal. The food and the service was excellent. The food that jumped out at me was a blue cheese souffle. I was surprised at how light and fluffy it was... More

We came with my 95 year old great uncle for a quiet dinner. Lovely warm welcome and very accommodating of his preferred seating requirements. Pre dinner drinks served in the bar area in front of a glowing homely fire, then taken through to the dining room for food. Beautifully presented soufflé, steak and Thai curry.....and that was just the bar... More

Absolutely loved it. I'm gluten and lactose intolerant and when I mentioned this to the lovely waitress (I think her name was Leanne), she said that she would make sure my meal was as per my request. And it was. I couldn't fault anything about my meal, neither could anyone else I was dining with. They made us feel very... More

What a fantastic place to stay! The staff could not have done more for us. We arrived between Christmas and New year and on the first night found that we had the place to ourselves. I expected the owners to have parts of the hotel shut off as it was only us but no. Roaring open fire wonderful fresh food... More

Good choices on the menu and the food was well cooked but we waited a long time between ordering and eating. OK if you have all evening but was a bit irritating as we were hungry. The service was very friendly and helpful but maybe needs a little more organisation.

Having driven through storm Angus from W.Sussex, the warm welcome and roaring fire were the best way to start our one night stay at this charming country house hotel. Our bedroom was a good size and well appointed. Despite being low season with no other resident guests, dinner was very enjoyable with generous sized portions.

This was a completely unplanned stop and born of necessity. as I entered the reception there was a lovely coal fire burning so I sunk into one of the easy chairs and sipped on a pint of Guinness while I surveyed the menu. I decided on rolled belly of pork and was soon shown to a table and within 10... More

We visited the Monkton Court Hotel as a group of 37 guests for dinner, arriving by coach. With plenty of time to spare before dinner, we were served a range of diverse drinks. The tables were all prepared beforehand, and we sat for dinner in tables of 10. We had already chosen our food, the three course dinner menu, which... More
