Free flowing Champagne Afternoon Tea
Sunday's in 2014
Put a little sparkle into your Afternoon Tea. Right now at The Montague we are offering free flowing Champagne. Starting at 12.30pm on Sundays for £59.00 per person, guests will enjoy as much Champagne as they please while they relax in the conservatory with their delicious afternoon treats including sandwiches, scones, pastries and cakes.
Sabrage Afternoon Tea
Our Sabrage Afternoon Tea is certainly unique! Learn the art of sabrage - the technique for opening a Champagne bottle with a sabre, the French Army sword. The sabre glides along the body of the bottle to break the entire neck away, leaving only the base of the bottle open and thus ready to pour.
This technique became popular in France when the army of Napoleon visited many of the aristocratic domains. It was just after the French Revolution and the sabre was the weapon of choice for Napoleon's light cavalry (the Hussars). Napoleon's spectacular victories across all Europe gave them plenty of reason to celebrate. During these parties the cavalry would open the Champagne with their sabres. Napoleon is known to have said, "Champagne! In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it”.
We have taken an old tradition and kept it alive by becoming part of the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or, which has continued to promote this dramatic event throughout the years. First you will watch a demonstration of how to open a bottle of Champagne with a sabre, before getting the chance to try it for yourself. You will then be able to enjoy your Champagne alongside a delicious Afternoon Tea! £99.00 per person including a sabrage certificate to show your friends and family!
