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
Throughout 2014
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!

A Life in Food - Bea’s Chicken Soup   
 Nowadays I refer to this as "Nana's Chicken Soup", because my grandchildren are always asking for this simple but deliciously comforting dish. It is a staple in our home, and also one of the most popular items in all of the hotels. I learned this recipe from my grandmother, and with it that the secret of great chicken soup is to use all the bones and let it cook slowly over a long period of time. Price £7

A Life in Food - Rice pudding
There is nothing better than the comfort of a homemade rice pudding. Traditionally rice pudding is a dish served warm, however, whilst tweaking an old recipe I found that adding chantîlly cream and keeping the pudding chilled allowed for a richer, creamier taste. Served with salted caramel and caramelized nuts on the side to add those extra sweet and salty touches as desired. Price £7
