Visited this restaurant at the weeded with my friends who live in the area. The place has two sections: one is the pub and the other the restaurant. The pub was full, so we went to the restaurant side. I have to admit that I felt it was a bit too posh for me at the beginning (with waiters calling... More

We booked to eat in Monty's whilst we were staying nearby in the New Forest. This was to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had a nice pre-meal drink in the bar before taking our table, and were warmly welcomed by the staff. I had the scotch egg to start, which was wonderful, and then my wife and I both had... More

A lovely alternative to The Terrace Restaurants. Equally as good but different. As with the whole hotel, the service was excellent and staff

Starters, one of Goats Cheese for the wife and Scallops for me. She often has this starter both in the UK and France and this is the best ever. (that is praise) The taste was superb and she insisted I try it too, and she was right. My scallops were also very good and cooked to perfection. On to a... More

My partner and I stayed at the Montague Arms which is next door to Montys and had a meal there. The food was unbelievably tasty and I recommend the chicken and mushroom pie. It was the best I've ever had. It's a lovely spot to sit and watch the donkeys and ponys wandering around beaulieu.

Come here for a quick drink in their bar first - really lovely vibe about the place. Food is incredible and I think very well priced. The scotch egg (about £7) and also homemade corned beef (I think around £9) were both AMAZING. I then had the lamb (£17 from memory) which was just superb, served with DELIGHTFUL shoulder croquettes.... More

My wife and I had lunch in the bar on Friday and booked the Monty's restaurant for the Saturday lunch ( the Michelin starred restaurant was a push too far for this weekend) The bar service was excellent and the bar food what one would hope for, on the Friday. Saturday service, food was excellent and was good value for... More

If you think you know what a scotch egg is, think again. The scotch egg starter here is sublime consisting of warm pork meat surrounding a soft egg produced by a chicken in the garden! You'll never want one of those cold rubbery scotch eggs ever again. The tempura prawns starter have perfect batter and the portion size is generous.... More

Just visited for lunch so can only judge on that. However we were really impressed. Not cheap but then the quality and location was worth it. I had the lamb pie which was fantastic and the gravy was really good (as a Yorkshireman I am qualified to judge). To top it off the staff were very freindly and accommodating. Certainly... More

This is principally a review of Montys Inn the pub part of the Montagu Arms Hotel. This is an interesting place. The staff are excellent - I cannot praise them highly enough. There are two main stars here in Jerome the bar manager and Natalie one of the bar staff. I think that these two people in particular would be... More
