I have never written any review but I felt I had to because the food was below the level I would cook at home.

Dear Mark We are very sorry for your experience but we are very proud of our products, specifically, veg comes from one of the best regenerative farms in the Uk. The vegetables were steamed just before service then finished off in the pan, pappardelle are hand-made with high-quality eggs and flour rolled daily. The ragù includes 7 cuts of local meats 3 kinds of tomato sauce simmered for 12 hours. The waitress checked back when clearing plates and all seemed to be fine! Best regards Monty team.

Upon arriving at the intimate, modern designed venue I was gleefully greeted by our delightful hostess, Fiona, and led to my table, where my date was seated. Although we were thoughtfully placed with a view of the bustling kitchen, I requested, as it was a warm evening, an outside table, which was duly accommodated.

As we were seated Fiona ran through the specialist menu and fine natural wine selection, we ordered green olives, wagyu beef salami, coppa and wild foraged mushroom bruscetta, all of which exceeded expectations in flavour and simplicity and freshness. The wild mushrooms were the definite highlight of the evening meal.

We sipped away at numerous Tanqueray and Tonic’s during the course of our evening, rounding off our evening with a small glass of the ever so sublime Pinot Noir.

Fiona has a natural attentive flow to her style of service, which my date and I truly appreciated, always dropping by at appropriate intervals to see how we were doing, we felt very well looked after, even though the venue was busy.

Both my date and I are very impressed with this new lil gem of an eatery and will definitely be back for more.

Good service but the food and wine were subpar at best. Both mains (truffle tagliatelle and monkfish) came out cool and poorly seasoned. We also sampled all three reds by the glass and the French blend actually smelled like cow manure. I get the concept of terroir but this was a bit extreme and unpalatable. Our server tried to explain that this was their concept and that this wine was placed on the menu to challenge and expand people’s horizons with wine. The only challenge was to our digestive systems. “Would you like anything for dessert?” No thanks, we’ve had enough.

Dear Brock, Thanks for your time to give us some feedback. We are a Natural Wine BAR and we are proud of our selection. The French blend is actually one of our best sellers, It has no intervention (nothing added, nothing taken during the vinification process) also is been suggested by a wine buyer who has over 20 years of experience. We are afraid to say that you do not know the concept of terroir and Its meaning. Thanks again and have a lovely day. Best regards, Monty Team.

First time here in Monty.

I heard about this new wine bar since first lockdown and I finally got to see and taste what this wine bar has to offer.

The staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable, guiding us through their food menu that is made out of prime seasonal products all prepared in house by the chef which is very engaging with customers and passionate about his food.

The wine list is a dream for any natural wine lovers. They are mainly focused on Italian and French wines.
An extensive orange wine selection is also present.

I had a great time here in Monty and I would definitely recommend to someone who want to have a great time surrounded by a great atmosphere and lively people.

See you very soon.

Kevin

So I am a local in this area and had been hearing about Monty for quite some time through neighbors and friends! So I decided to check it out and was extremely impressed. From the staff’s friendly and welcoming energy, their vast knowledge in natural wines (they are a natural wine bar) and the quality/ freshness of the food; I was happy to say that my experience was great from start to finish.

It was such a special experience for us! Starting from the food that was outstanding, the vibe, the service (thanks again to the waitress for all the recommendations!!) and finishing with the wine list. I was very impressed by the knowledge and the passion of those guys, definitely will come back again :))

Amazing experience!
I came for a lunch with a friend and we will not forgot the juicy Lamb and the home made Ragù Pappardelle.
Never been in a place with this selection of natural wines.
We’re gonna come back for sure.

Service was slow to begin with, took 20 mins or more for them to take a drink order.

Food was average ... main course cold. Plates of diners were taken away before some had finished eating. Glass taken away with wine still in.

But what really put us off this place is that the bill was brought to us before asking if we were finished and then we were requested to pay before asking to. We were then told that we had 10 minutes before we had to leave. It was only 10pm!
