Life's a picnic at The Montagu Arms

25th Jun 2020

As the sun beats down on our glorious English countryside, what could be nicer than packing up a picnic hamper and finding a secluded spot away from the madding crowds for lunch with a view?

Thanks to The Montagu Arms, you won’t even have to spend hours hunting for that battered old picnic basket or making your own sandwiches. 

We’ve created a fabulous wicker hamper that’s bursting full of delicious goodies, complete with crockery, cutlery – and even a picnic blanket.

For a spot of al fresco fine dining, the luxury picnic menu features a selection of  finger sandwiches, a succulent pork pie from our local butcher Billy Owtons accompanied by piccalilli, slices of honey roast ham, Longmans English cheddar and chutney, and an Isle of Wight tomato, basil and mozzarella salad. To finish f.enjoy a selection of fruit & and plain Scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, lemon polenta cake and fresh seasonal fruit.

The Montagu Arms is ideally located for finding a spot for lunch with a view. At the heart of the New Forest in the picturesque village of Beaulieu, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the banks of the tidal Beaulieu River, and peaceful countryside walks start from the hotel’s doorstep.

Walk the two miles along the river to the pretty maritime village of Buckler’s Hard, and unfurl your blanket on the grassy slopes at the river’s edge.

Or take advantage of our classic car break, which allows you to motor through a succession of idyllic New Forest villages in an iconic sports car of your choice – perfect for hunting out the best spot to stop and unload your picnic hamper. Then return to the hotel to enjoy more fine dining in the hotel’s award-winning Terrace restaurant, where head chef Matthew Tomkinson will prepare his seven-course signature tasting menu, with fine wine pairing by the head sommelier.


The Luxury Classic Car Break starts at £395 per person.

A Luxury Picnic is £20 per person
