We were only in Montagu for one night but were fortunate to have had lunch at the Rambling Rose. The salads were delicious and service was excellent. We also bought a jar of their delicious lemon chutney. Recommended.

We have been going to the Rambling Rose frequently through the past few years, and always had delicious meals, wonderful friendly and welcoming service. Plus of course its ambiance of course is very good, winter or summer!
