The Langton Arms is a beautiful, multi award-winning 17th century thatched country pub with its own restaurant, function room & private gardens. Nestled in the heart of chocolate box Dorset countryside, it is situated in the pretty village of Tarrant Monkton with six en-suite bedrooms if you fancy staying over. The pub can be found at the heart of the village, far from the hustle and bustle of modern life. It sits opposite the beautiful All Saints Parish Church which dates back to the 15th century.

Voted Best Country Pub in Dorset 2018 by SME Business Awards, Best Food & Drink Business 2017 at the Taste of Dorset Awards & Best Pub in Dorset by The National Pub & Bar Awards 2016. The Langton Arms was also winner of the prestigious Best Overall Food Business Taste of Dorset Award 2015.

Tarrant Monkton is a “chocolate box” village in the heart of the Dorset countryside. Drive down the lanes, through the old ford and past the thatched cottages to the heart of the village where you will find the church and The Langton Arms Pub.
