Have visited twice and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful and I was particularly impressed by the cleanliness - tables not being left dirty or cluttered but sorted immediately a customer leaves. Their 'Bubble and Squeak' is delicious...More

Monty’s allows dogs in the front part of the cafe. When I visited with my two little dogs, they were also treated to a biscuit each!
