My wife and I stopped for lunch at the Montagu Arms. We parked at the rear of the hotel and walked through the garden to the terrace. We were immediately greeted and when we asked if we could have lunch were seated in the lounge and offered drinks. These were delivered with a selection f nuts and olives. The restaurant manager was an immaculately dressed French man who was very attentive, his number two who was similarly attired and also French explained the menu. We explained that my wife is a coeliac, and were assured that all would would be well.
Having made our choice, muscles risotto to start followed by chicken, we were soon shown through to impressive restaurant. The food and the service from the staff was outstanding and the high point of our week holiday. The bill came to £ 64 which included the wine and a memorable three course lunch. Fantastic. What impressed us most? The level of customer care, my wife was provided with a small table on which to place her handbag, as, the waitress explained, it is bad feng shui to have your money on the floor.
