Our first ‘Winter Pub Meet’ for the New Year will take place at the Langton Arms, Tarrant Monkton, which we have visited on many other occasions and had a good experience. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and you never know it may even be dry enough for us to drive our classics. As per normal, we meet at the pub at 12.00 noon, please let Barry know as soon as possible if you would like to join us.
A rich & rewarding history in the local Dorset community
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.
