Christmas Dining

The Terrace at The Montagu Arms is one of the finest 3AA Rosette restaurants in Hampshire and is the perfect place for Christmas day lunch in the New Forest.

Enjoy your Christmas Day lunch in Beaulieu and leave all the organisation to us. Indulge in a Champagne and Canapes reception, followed by a traditional 4 course lunch delicately prepared by Head Chef Matthew Tomkinson and his Team.

Our 3AA Rosette Christmas menu is all made from the finest seasonal produce from hand selected suppliers and our very own Kitchen Garden.
