  • Date: Wednesday, 21 April 2010

The Montague on the Gardens, the luxury four-star boutique hotel in Bloomsbury, will officially launch summer on Tuesday, 11th May, when they serve the season’s first barbecue lunch on their gorgeous Wood Deck.

Overlooking the delightful private gardens of the Bedford estate, with their wonderful mature trees, superb sculptures and manicured lawns, the Wood Deck and Terrace provide a little oasis of calm and tranquillity. The beautiful Wood Deck is so secluded and peaceful it’s hard to believe that you are surrounded by one of the world’s busiest cities!

Between 12:30pm and 10:30pm every day, until Sunday, 12th September, guests and visitors can enjoy spectacular al fresco barbecue lunches and dinners. It’s the perfect setting for catching up with friends over a long cool Pimms or a cocktail or two, then savouring a few succulent delights fresh from the glowing grill. Afternoon Tea lovers can also enjoy their scones and sandwiches on the Terrace, basking in the sun.

At just £19.50 for two courses and £24.50 for three courses, Chef will be serving everything from hearty burgers and chunky chips to BBQ spare ribs with grilled pak choi and sesame dressing, and half a lobster grilled with garlic and parsley butter to suprêmes of salmon with braised fennel and pesto sauce.

The Wood Deck and the Terrace also make a perfect venue for private parties and events, comfortably accommodating up to 200 guests for an informal barbecue reception. Priced from £35.00 per person, guests can enjoy grilled tuna steak, beef and mushroom kebabs, marinated haloumi cheese skewers, and pasta salad with chorizo to fresh English strawberries and cream, or even spit roasted whole hog roast or rosemary and garlic suckling pig.
