"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire”
- Edith Sitwell
As we patiently wait for winter to draw to a close, there is no better way to eagerly await spring than by watching it blossom from the warmth of a fireside chair. Roaring fires and spectacular food is exactly what we boast at the Montagu – the perfect place to appreciate the changing of the seasons.
The Montagu Arms is a 17th century country house hotel, enveloped by the striking British countryside and surrounded in history. Once the hunting ground of William the Conqueror, the landscapes and woodlands remain preserved to allow visitors and locals alike to enjoy their natural beauty.
The Montagu Arms takes the charm of the Forest and creates a retreat like no other for those looking to truly indulge in the authentic New Forest experience. The hotel boasts the Terrace Restaurant – where local produce and sustainable sourced ingredients are at the heart of everything we create.
Our head chef, Matt Tomkinson is passionate about serving food which makes sense, “food which is reflective of the time of year and our location and that is ethically and sustainably sourced.
“I’ve made Hampshire my larder and what a larder it is!”
