I recently visited the area with a friend and found we spent most of our time in the area soaking up the atmosphere of this fantastic establishment. It is a truly memorable and special place.
Firstly, the setting is amazing, a beautiful thatched building within a beautiful village setting. Inside is fantastic, clean and comfy. A lovely, warm welcome from staff was reinforced by other patrons in the bar, conversation and entertainment was free flowing making us feel like we were amongst friends rather than visitors. Nothing was too much trouble, and anything that could be done to improve our experience was done, without any hesitation.
The food was reasonably priced and was of the highest quality. This is made even better when I discovered that all ingredients were locally sourced and everything was homemade by The Langton itself, even having its own butcher. I think between the two of us we nearly got through the menu and were unable to pick fault with anything.
Even though we weren't staying at the pub we booked in for breakfast each day. A selection of fruit and cereal to start with, then, Roz (the breakfast queen) cooked a magnificent breakfast to order. The breakfast was good value and will set you up for the day no problem.
We took the chance to buy some of the burgers and sausages made by the Langton Arms butcher. They were great, even someone like me with below average skills in the kitchen can't ruin them.
In summary- great location, great food, and great people. We're unable to find fault with anything here and looking forward to finding an excuse to return.
