We visited to celebrate a special birthday. This is our second visit and once again the food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. The staff are second to none! Although not cheap, it was not extortionate and absolutely delicious. The menu was varied, with something for everyone. Defiantly worth the drive out!

Lovely day out with the Lions Club for their 44th year Chater Lunch with our Mayor as the guest of honour. Held in the function room with buffet service, ample portions of the main and dessert, an observation and not a criticism would be serving a demitasse of soup instead of a bowl which is filling and cheap, but maybe...

Dear James M Wonderful to hear that the Lions Club had a fantastic 44th Charter Lunch with us. You are absolutely right, a fine pub is one that takes care of its customers whomever is working that day, as we should all be offering the highest service standards all the time & that clearly happened.

The ensuite room we stayed in on two occasions is very comfortable and clean and we were able to arrive very late and were still made welcome. Evening meal is superb and full English breakfast delicious. Very easy access to rooms and restaurant and car park. Beautiful countryside all around.

Coming from hectic London, a weekend in Tarrant Monkton was the perfect escape: an hour and a half outside the Big Smoke it is the quintessential village, showcasing the English countryside at it's best. This was my first visit to Dorset but my friend, an annual freequenter of the Langton Arms, booked us into the quaint and charming public house....

Dear supercook123 Sorry to heat that Burns Night was not a success for you and your party. There was definitely plenty of food, nothing ran out during the evening and our long serving Head Chef was on duty and tastes everything before it goes out. Having spoken to him this morning, he was happy with everything that we served on...

Pub is good for families as there is a play area outside and large open space as well. My family spoke highly of the roast beef although the roast potatoes had seen too much of the inside of the oven. My meat pie was very flavoursome although the meat was a touch dry. Nothing a spot of gravy couldn't solve...

We visited on a busy Saturday lunchtime and all ordered Ham, Egg and Chips. The food was delicious and the serving team were friendly, cheerful and prompt. If you're looking for a great value, high quality pub lunch around the Blandford area then this place hits the spot.

Dear Yargybarn, Wonderful review of what we like to think of as a proper pub lunch of local free range eggs, our own Langton Arms Butchery ham and homemade chips, it doesn't get better than that!
