Chose the Langton Arms as it was a good location to meet my sister for lunch. We were very happy with our food, stuffed aubergine, which came with vegetables. We didn't order starters or desserts but were offered a sample of the home made soup and a delicious chocolate cake on the house. The meals appear quite pricey but as... More

Our meal was very good yes it's was more expensive than average I would average £2-3 more per meal than you would normally pay. The meal was of good quality so we diet mind the extra cost.... More

Dear Dorsetsbest, Thank you for your candour & giving us a try for yourselves. We're not the cheapest but hope that the generous portions of homemade local Dorset food is well worth the prices that we charge our customers. There are no surprises of "extras" as all our sides are included in the meals and we hope the little cup... More

The food was great, family of 12 made up of three generations, all looked after very well by the staff. The little people aged 8 years and 6 years were also made welcome. We will go back another day.

Food was excellent, great quality and quantity at great price for the standard. Service was excellent and they couldn't do enough for us and even provided a bespoke menu as one of our party had many food allergies. We will definitely visit again and would recommend. Thanks so much

Dear Borderterrier Thank you for the compliment. A busy pub is a challenge especially when you have all the different elements of bars, restaurant, rooms, garden, functions and more to manage at once. Lovely to hear that it all worked perfectly and the team here took great care of you on your visit. Thanks indeed. More

Went to lots of Christmas Lunch/dinners but have to say The Langton Arms was the best. They were very busy, but service was excellent. Food was hot, delicious and well presented. Came along with extra veg, nice touch. Super coffee was served with mini mince pies again nice touch. Will definitely be returning soon. Well done.
